Quay walls New Holland Island
In St. Petersburg, Russia, Witteveen+Bos conducted due diligence for the quay walls of New Holland Island. This island was created in 1719 after the excavation of two channels in the St. Petersburg area.
Our team in Russia is working on major repairs to New Holland Island, focusing on the quay walls. The project involves 1,725 metres of embankments, as well as the inner basin with the eastern and southern access canals. Approximately 450 metres of new quay wall need to be redesigned, while repairs have to be carried out on the remaining 1,275 metres stretch of quay wall.
The main purpose of the project is to repair existing damage to the quay walls and to prevent the New Holland Island banks from wearing away due to erosion. The quay walls must comply with the latest design standards. The project has similarities to a number of quay walls that were renovated in the city centre of Amsterdam. Thanks in part to the expertise of Witteveen+Bos, a beautiful section of St. Petersburg will be renovated.
