This article states that the Dutch ministers for transport, public works, water management and housing, special planning and environment have presented a letter to Parliament outlining their support for the Maasvlakte 2 project. The letter answers 38 opinions that have been submitted over the summer on the master plan or Planologische Kern Beslissing for the Port of Rotterdam extension, and outlines what the national authorities, the municipality of Rotterdam and the Port Authority will do to improve air quality so that pollution levels are acceptable. The Port of Rotterdam has endorsed the position adopted by the ministers and added that there is every reason for the Lower House of Parliament to give the go-ahead for the construction of Maasvlakte 2.
