Back and forth

On May 18, 2013 the celebratory opening of two redesigned ferry banks took place. The ferry banks are situated along the river Waal serving pedestrians and  bicyclists to take the ferry between Beuningen and Slijk-Ewijk. On both sides is a new ferry bank was built design by Atelier Quadrat and Blom&Moors. The assignment was commissioned by Dienst Landelijk Gebied.

Two robust benches made from concrete and steel provide a resting place for those who are waiting on the boat. Poet Tim Pardijs wrote two poems, one for each side of the river, which are sand-blasted into the concrete slabs on the ground. These contemporary beacons along the river offer residents and holidaymakers a moment of reflection and beautiful views. The opening ceremony was designed by artist Rob Sweere.
