    Main content

    Amsterdam IJ is a busy waterway, attracting diverse users, from pleasure boats to commercial barges. However, the increasing shared use of the river can pose safety and accessibility issues if not managed effectively by authorities and users. Collaborative measures are needed to maximise societal value and ensure safe and responsible use.

    Key Challenge

    How can we make the IJ-area, with its diverse, growing and changing population, a safe, sustainable and economic viable shared space?

    Possible Solutions

    • Navigation app that informs recreational users on good seamanship
    • Dashboard/platform collecting and sharing data between authorities
    • Speaking water, dynamic signalling.
