Infrastructure and Mobility

Dutch legislation concerning the construction and management of new and existing roads, railways and civil engineering structures is stringent. The environmental law attorneys at Pels Rijcken specialise in infrastructure and mobility, allowing them to assist you in realising your mobility project. Whether it's advising on the renovation of an existing tunnel under the Road Tunnel Safety (Additional Rules) Act, widening a motorway or constructing a railway or light rail, Pels Rijcken approaches the issue within the broader context of accessibility solutions.

Legal expertise in mobility

Our attorneys facilitate the progress of infrastructure or mobility projects. They are often already involved from a very early stage. They can assist you with:

  • advising on the design decision;
  • continuous legal assessment of the process;
  • guiding the decision-making procedure for project decisions;
  • representation in administrative court (district court or Administrative Jurisdiction Division of the Council of State).

Our specialised team of attorneys and legal experts consider all legal aspects when evaluating designs, including potential alternatives, noise pollution, air quality, transportation values and traffic safety. Aspects such as nature and nitrogen are increasingly relevant in mobility projects and are a significant part of our daily practice.
