Research project on how to improve traffic congestion without damaging the historic structures along the New Dutch Waterline, a military defensework built around 1880. An in-depth traffic study revealed that instead of building a new freeway, adding underpasses to the existing roadways improved traffic congestion without any significant impact on the existing environment.
