Widening A27 can go ahead, objections rejected by Council of State

The A27 between Houten and Hooipolder may be widened. The Council of State has declared almost all objections to the trajectory decision to be unfounded. These objections were mainly filed by people who live along that part of the motorway and companies that are located there. In total there were 45 objections.


There’s a fear that those trees will take away the view of the farms. The minister is given twenty weeks to make clear whether all these trees are really necessary and whether she has taken a good look at the interests of the entrepreneur, reports RTV Utrecht. The A27 is still a two-lane motorway in many places. The road will be widened over a length of 47 kilometres. Many bridges on the route will also be tackled and the Hooipolder junction will be renovated
