When I was a child, my father had a sailing boat. We sailed many of the dutch lakes and waterways, and we’ve crossed several of those aquaducts. I must have been somewhere between 10 and 15 years, back then… I’m 51 now, so some of these constructions must have existed for quite a bit longer than 40 years already…
It’s really amazing to sail across an aquaduct and stop halfway, moaring at the railing, and see cars pass beneath you. That was mighty impressive!

At first glance i taught that is was a graphics trick.
but it is possible, very creative
wow thats the place where i live LOL
harderwijk viaduct is the name
how do u get 2 th other side? lol
So they built a f’in tunnel who gives a F.
Why is everybody saying “this is such a great idea”? They just made some dikes and a tunnel? Don’t get me wrong, I’m dutch and proud of it, but I don’t see anything special about the concept. It was probably just a lot cheaper than tunneling all the way under the canal.
over de a4 in holland is al jaren een waterweg
simple, it goes up you mums bum
Obviously not you. So that begs the question why did you even waste time looking at the page, or commenting on it? Geesh, some people would always rather say something ignorant, than say nothing at all.
i had been to this place a month ago. it’s looks amazing , better than this picture.
Tunnels actually cost a lot of money to run
What if it’s raining flood in funnel? But hooowwwwww?
I like different things like this.
Really Great image, Thanks

As you can see there is a bridge a few hundred meters away. Alone is not high enough for all sailboats. While the aquaduct is not big enough for inland vessels.
that one is even a lock and done by Zwarts and Jansma architects and called a naviduct:
I could have built a bridge, a tunnel, and a time machine in the time it took for you to ‘splain yourself. I think 24 people drowned in the same time….
HA! You are funny. “Human can do anything…” except what’s most important or necessary.
Wow! That’s very smart of you! You’ve overruled hundreds of engineers with over 40 years of experience in making this constructions!

dont look here
Ever heard of a pump ?
Well, there are some in the basement, at the deepest point, with pipes to the surface dumping the water in the lake or river…
Interesting that a leopard can get along with a dog. I hope its not photoshop.
…I’m wondering how no one has made a “water under the bridge” pun yet. Anyone?
In the state of Virginia we have over 6 underwater tunnel roadways. So in our neck of the woods this isn’t all that unusual. We are use to driving thru these tunnels but I have family from out of state and they get scared whenever we go thru one!
See Please (POLY)
We enjoyed this site. It is great fun. Keep up the great work. SCOGOSTOLOGY, SGSG
This is in the Netherlands, at Harderwijk – I live closeby. Fun to drive through, even greater to sail across. Took my kids across one day – people waving from inside their cars and all. A blast! This is only half of the structure: the second part is a bridge (for freighters) and the aquaduct is for smaller recreational vessels.
Really some great ideas to get inspiration. I am really thinking over on some of them but i think i have made my ind that the cat with some lions hair is the best from all the above. Thanks for the post…
Regarding to first picture:
In Holland on A4 motorway, plus railway:)
A Great Idea
very smart fox ……………………….. thanks
Where is the picture of the boy on the dock and the girl under water from? It is sad and beautiful.
Actually, we use these things called aquaducts quite often in the Netherlands. We have at least twenty of them, according to Wikipedia.
Banorama site is very good and publish much more weird and funny…
Love the pictures. Especially the cat with the lions mane.
