To solve wind problems around the Caland Bridge a windshield was needed of 1750 meters long, 25 meters high and 25 percent wind permeability. Of four models, especially aesthetic, the optimum solution was chosen. Instead of a perforated wall loose concrete elements have been applied. The south screen consists of semi-circular discs with a diameter of 18 meters, in the mid-screen, this was reduced to 4 meters. Both have a height of 25 meters. The north screen consists of straight concrete slabs of 10 by 10 meters. Designed by architect Maarten Struijs in collaboration with landscape artist Frans de Wit.
