Afgedamde Maas

The Meuse river splits near Heusden into the Afgedamde Maas river on the right and the Bergse Maas river on the left. It joins the Waal near Woudrichem to form the Boven Merwede river.

The Bergse Maas has been formed in 1904, to divert the flow of the Meuse from the route now called Afgedamde Maas (Dammed Up Meuse). The latter is still connected to the Meuse through the Heudens Canal.

There is a car ferry, not operating on sundays, and a foot passenger ferry. [1] (http://www.voetveren.nl/p-pr-nbr.htm)
