Deltawerken - Osterschelde - Zeeland

    Newer Older

    The Delta Works are a series of constructions built between 1950 and 1997 in the southwest of the Netherlands to protect a large area of land around the Scheldt delta.
    The aim was to shorten the Dutch coastline, thus reducing the number of dikes that had to be raised.
    Along with the Zuiderzee Works, they have been declared one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers.
