2nd Juliana Lock Gouda

The current Juliana Lock, built between 1932 and 1936, is unable to meet the demand for more and larger scale transport over water, as the maximum width is too limited for modern inland shipping vessels. The new lock means that pleasure crafts and professional vessels can be separated, to benefit safety and flow. The new lock will be 14 m wide, so the Van Lent shipyard, situated behind the lock, can build larger super yachts. The lock will be built right next to the present lock. Building started in October 2012 and the commissioning will be in 2014.
