Project Sample: Diversion of Canal Zuid-Willemsvaart

We just received another Time-Location Chart from VolkerWessels to present it on our Website:
It shows the planning of the diversion of a Canal, Section Zuid-Willemsvaart in the Netherlands. In this construction project seveal bridges and buildings along the canal has to be build ior rebuild before the actual work on the canal can be done.
The chart combines a map of the canal, the time-location chart showing the schedule and an elevation diagram showing the land levels combined with the water gauge and embarkment height along the distance.
It is planned to open the new building for shipping end of 2014.
