Plans for a bicycle and pedestrian bridge over the IJ river in Amsterdam, can not count on support from Dutch public works department Rijkswaterstaat or Minister Melanie Schultz van Haegen of Infrastructure and Environment, ANP reports.

The bridge is intended to connect Java island and neighborhood Noord. But according to the Rijkswaterstaat, such a bridge would hinder boating traffic. A tunnel would be a better idea.
