Herbosch-Kiere is currently working on the reinforcement of the quay walls and raising the flood control on the right bank in Antwerp. This should protect the city from flooding and should strengthen the relation between land and water by creating a new public area.

At this moment we are concentrating on the structural stability and the flood control of the bank structures at the Ledeganckkaai (about 700m long). This is one of the most critical zones because the old quay wall shifts and tilts, with a lack of stability and the risk of collapsing as a result. This part of the quay wall will be completely demolished.
