In connection with the limited traffic intensities in the first years after the commercial opening of the Tweede Maasvlakte, the first instance opted for a ground-level intersection on the Maasvlakteweg at the height of the Princess Amalia Haven. At the level of this intersection, several roads are crossed with a single rail line, a piping strip and the Container Exchange Route. The increasing activities on the Tweede Maasvlakte will also raise the traffic flows. For the purpose of a fixed attainableness of the container terminals, the Port of Rotterdam replaces the level intersection by a non-level intersection: The Princess Amalia Viaduct.
