Rijkswaterstaat is the executive agency of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, dedicated to promote safety, mobility and the quality of life in the Netherlands. Rijkswaterstaat manages and develops the main road network and waterway network plus the main water systems. We endeavour to create a sustainable living environment.
We work with others to ensure that the Netherlands is protected against flooding, that there is sufficient green space and an adequate supply of clean water, and that the citizens of the Netherlands are able to travel quickly and safely from A to B. Jointly promoting safety, mobility and the quality of life in the Netherlands is what Rijkswaterstaat stands for.
