After 4 years of duty, the Board of Government Advisors switches for a new Board. Ton Venhoeven, chief government advisor on infrastructure, will be succeeded by Rients Dijkstra on the 15th of August. On July 3rd a farewell debate was organised. During this symposium Ton Venhoeven presented the advice of the Board of Government Advisors on multimodal node development to the Minister of Infrastructure & the Environment Schultz Van Haegen.
In September the book ‘De Mobiele Stad’ will be published by NAi/010 publishers. Written by Ton Venhoeven and journalist Tijs van den Boomen the book redefines the concept of accessibility, as spatial planning and infrastructure are inseparable.
