Third City Bridge

Third City Bridge Rotterdam


New Urban Connections 


In studying a new urban connection across the river, the city of Rotterdam:

  • thinks of  new relationships between the city and the river by re-orienting the city towards the river,
  • reinforces the north-south evolution of the city centre and the entire city in developing the connections,
  • activates new urban developments along the banks of the river in creating synergetic programming in transportation, residential, commercial, cultural and leisure activities,
  • reinforces the quality of life inside the city,
  • makes the banks and the heart  of the city a new landscape that can bring forth a new image for the city,
  • creates a new landmark on the east, at the entrance of the city centre which responds to the Erasmus bridge.
