About Rijkswaterstaat

Rijkswaterstaat is part of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment and responsible for the design, construction, management and maintenance of the main infrastructure facilities in the Netherlands. This includes:

The main road network

The Dutch mobility policy serves 2 goals: reliable journey times and better accessibility. By 2020, motorists travelling in the rush hour must be able to arrive punctually 95% of the time, despite increased mobility and unexpected congestion. The Dutch economy relies heavily on transport and logistics, the main economic centres must remain accessible.

The main waterway network

Dry feet, sufficient clean water and reliable and useful information. That is what integrated water management means to Rijkswaterstaat. The Dutch waterway network is the densest in Europe. About 6000 kilometers of rivers and canals, many of the latter serving drainage as well as navigation, form a complex system serving all parts of the country. 

The main water systems

The goal is to achieve the most efficient and flexible construction, management and maintenance of the main water systems in the Netherlands: the major rivers, the coast, the Wadden Sea, the Southwest Delta, the IJsselmeer region and the North Sea. The Dutch coast protects us from the sea. That is why it is so important to maintain it properly. Rijkswaterstaat is responsible for this.
