The Catharinesingel canal was filled in in the 70’s, to the sadness of many people in and outside Utrecht. The water is now being brought back, the canal will be a lively one, with terraces, shops and surrounded by trees.
The constuction takes a while because a new system of bridges will have to be constructed first. Apart from that other constructions next to and under the canal will have to be completed first.
The first stage of this project was finisched in december 2015 when water started flowing again until the new TivoliVredenburg concert hall.
