Specifics: The ecoduct Treeker Wissel is an ecopassage that connects the military training area Leusderheide and the estate Den Treek-Henschoten on both sides of the N227. The ecoduct has composite panels from Holland Composites.
This ecoduct is built on a prominent visibility location. According to architect Edwin Megens and landscape architect Steven Jansen, the asymmetrical form expresses the fact that this is a connection between two different areas. On the one hand the high-altitude Leusderheide and on the other the forest complex of Den Treek – Henschoten.
Within this asymmetrical form much attention has been gone into the integration of the fences, transitions and edges. Holland Composites has executed the edge elements in a composite product that is ‘blindly’ attached to the concrete structure. The organic shape with a rounding, chamfering and an arc give the ecoduct a special and striking appearance.
Animal figures have been included in the concrete artwork to show visitors under the ecoduct what is going on above their heads. The Artists of the Amerpoort (an organization for people with a mental disability) have contributed to the design with their figurations in a special way.
To make this ecoduct sustainable, various measures have been taken: rainwater is collected by wells and then infiltrated into the subsoil. The asphalt construction is designed to be sound-reducing. The lighting under the ecoduct is geared to the light intensity of the environment for the animals. This means that the illuminance is automatically adjusted at night.
Development, production, transport and assembly of the composite ecoduct / bridge covers / panels by Holland Composites.
