The concrete foundations in the Nieuwe Achtergracht canal turned out to be stronger than anticipated. Unfortunately it was not possible to complete the demolition of the part of the foundation above water-level at the end of last week.

The demolition work has been resumed on 12 April. This week, demolition work above water-level will take place between 07.00 and 09.00, and underwater demolition between 09.00 and 18.00. On Saturday 16 April, work will commence at 09.00. The demolition of the underwater part of the foundation will take at least two weeks.
