If it were up to GroenLinks party chairman Zeeger Ernsting, the proposal to build a bridge or tunnel for car traffic between Almere and IJburg would not become a reality. This is a plan for the new alliance of the province of Flevoland.
BBB, VVD, PVV, ChristenUnie, and SGP coalition books This week, the so-called IJmeer compass should be a “tunnel or bridge for cars, bicycles and a subway”.

The two parties wrote: “No further development of Prince Bampus without Ejmer connection.” “We therefore believe it is important for the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management to include this link in the multi-year program Infrastructure, Space and Transportation (MIRT).” They emphasized that the “multi-modes of transport” is a “difficult case”.
Ernsting is far from enthusiastic. He writes tonight “In Amsterdam/Igeborg we are not waiting for a new car bridge” Twitter.
