Zeeland Bridge: Longest bridge in the Netherlands
Longest bridge in the Netherlands
Zierikzee - The Zeeland Bridge, built in 1965, bridges the Oosterschelde between Zierikzee and Colijnsplaat and connects Noord-Beveland with Schouwen-Duiveland in the province of Zeeland. The Zeeland Bridge has a length of 5022 meters and has therefore been the longest bridge in the Netherlands for many years. The Zeeland Bridge rests on 54 pillars that are 95 meters apart. The design is a typical example of the post-war reconstruction period in the Netherlands between 1959-1965.
