In 2016 the redesign of the control software started in order to make the ICT control system of the Maeslantkering more reliable. Recently the recalibration of the project approach of Rijkswaterstaat, which featured the changes of the control system, was evaluated by the independent advisory commission Storm Surge Barriers, which consists of Marcel Hertogh, Han Vrijling and Kees Stuurman. The advisory commission agrees with the approach of Rijkswaterstaat. This was stated in a message sent by the Minister to the Dutch House of Representatives.
