Weekend reflections

One meter below the water level on the other side of the retaining wall construction workers lay the last hand on the buffer dam to prevent ships to collide with the building on the right in the water of the Y in amsterdam. After finishing the water is allowed over the dam and you only see the left wall out of the water covered with rubber fenders to prevent ships from damaging themselves by hitting it. Still the backing up by a concrete dam of 10 meter broad and 6 meter high anchored with piles in the ground to prevent sinking also with a retaining wall on the other side will prevent ships with sometimes a mass from more then 10.000 tons to crumple it like paper.
For more weekend reflections look here.
