Toelichting (Engels) Exceptional circumstances need a wide scope of unusual measures. This idea has been the source of inspiration to develop the Toolbox as part of the innovation program ‘Hoogwater? Vrije weg!’ (High water levels? Free roads!) of the Dutch Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water management. In case of an imminent flooding by sea or river, what measures can we take to increase the effectiveness of our roads? More in detail: what can we do to use our roads as long and as effective as possible to evacuate people and cattle? What can we do to make the roads available for traffic as quick as possible after a flood? And how could our road constructions contribute to our water management in case of a flood situation? Inspired by these three questions measures have been collected in the application ‘Toolbox Hoogwater? Vrije weg!’
