The Province of South-Holland asked the sculptor Lucien den Arend to make a proposal for the new stretch of highway S47which was to bypass the towns Middelharnis, Sommelsdijk and Dirksland on the island of Goerree Overflakkee in Zuid-Holland. He was to take into account the inherent qualities of the Goerree Overflakkee landscape and visualize how the highway could be related to its surroundings by way of the integration of art. The Dirksland bridge was one of the main elements designed and realized by Lucien den Arend in this project.
