Highway 69

The Province of Brabant invited WesselinkvanZijst to facilitate a 24–party dialogue on the redevelopment of Highway 69, south of the city of Eindhoven. The main task was to amalgamate the need to reroute this highway out of the city center of the township of Valkenswaard, while at the same time protecting agricultural and environmental values in the proposed area of the new route. WesselinkVanZijst developed an approach to base individual needs of each of these 24 parties on their genuine interests. Considering the diversity and contradiction between these interests, it will not be surprising that it took 18 months to build a coalition for one new track for Highway 69. In the final meetings discussions were on the level of individual plots, but the result was accepted widely. The provincial parliament agreed on the outcome of the process.
