Lock Schalkwijkse Wetering one year after…

Lock (sluis) Schalkwijkse Wetering 1 year after moving it July 2017.

This lock has been moved 120 meters to make room for a wider channel as en entrance to the Beatrixsluis in Nieuwegein, Utrecht (the Netherlands). The Beatrixsluis will get a third lock chamber, it’s now already one of the busiest locks in the Netherlands.

The lock was built in 1936 and moved in 2017. It was cut in 4 parts to move it and now will be a landmark forever!
