Implementation of RIS on the Westerscheldt river
The Action aims to bring River Information Services (RIS) to the Westerscheldt river, in compliance with the 2005 RIS Directive (2005/44/EC).

The Action's objective is to adapt the existing local traffic management systems in such a way that they will be able to offer maritime traffic management as well as river information services. This will help make navigation on the Westerscheldt safer and smoother
