On the occasion of the Kunstestafette 1998 'Mooi versus Mentaliteit', Jeanne van Heeswijk was asked to develop a project for the town of Alphen aan den Rijn. She proposed to connect parts of the city that are separated from each other by the river Rhine, by means of creating a temporary boulevard on pontoons. The river would thus no longer be seen as a dividing line, but more as a connection. For one weekend the project 'Waterwandelaar' would enable people to walk on the Old Rhine, from the 3rd Centrumbrug to the Swaenswijkbrug, with a total distance of seven hundred meters. This project was not realised.
