Press information

Press Officers are available for members of the media. If you are not from the media, you can only reach the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management via the general address and telephone number and via the contact form on this website.

Whom should you contact?

The Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, Rijkswaterstaat (the executive arm of the Ministry), the Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate (ILT) and the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) each have their own press officers. They also have their own standby numbers to be used only in the event of an emergency outside office hours.

The Ministry

The Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management works on strengthening aviation and road, rail and water connections. The Ministry is tackling road congestion and improving the flow of traffic. This is essential for the economy as well as for the environment we live in. If you have any questions about this policy or its political context, please contact the relevant spokesperson (see below).

In the event of an emergency, the Press Office can be reached outside office on +31 (0)70  - 456 70 60.
