English translation:Public Works (Removal of Impediments in Private Law) Act [Belemmeringenwet Privaatrecht: Belwp]
Explanation:
I would suggest following JurLex, IATE and other here: "Public Works (Removal of Impediments in Private Law) Act", adding the Dutch in brackets.

See e.g.: https://www.google.com/search?ei=0NkjW7v8MeGagAa27r-IDA&q=&q...

and specifically this translation on the www.government.nl website:

"The legislative bill forms an initial important step in the shift towards a coherent system for
environmental law. The legislative bill replaces:

• the Public Works (Removal of Impediments in Private Law) Act, the Crisis and Recovery Act,
the City and Environment Interim Act, the Earth Removal Act, the Traffic and Transport
Planning Act, the Road Widening Emergency Act, the Infrastructure (Planning Procedures) Act,
the Act providing for uniform provisions for managing the physical environment , the Ammonia
and Livestock Farming Act, the Livestock Farms (Odour Nuisance) Act, the Hygiene and Safety
(Bathing Facilities and Swimming Opportunities) Act, the Air Pollution Act and the Spatial
Planning Act

[...]

The legislative bill forms an important first step; it serves as a guide for the subsequent process of
reforming the system by means of the Environment and Planning Act. It provides a consistent
structure for environmental legislation. A number of elements of environmental law are addressed
separately and incorporated into the Environment and Planning Act by means of individual
legislative bills (soil, noise, land ownership, the natural environment, road management and the
parts of environmental regulations that relate to non-location-specific* activities). It is envisaged
that the Environment and Planning Act will ultimately replace:
• 26 laws, namely the Public Works (Removal of Impediments in Private Law) Act
[Belemmeringenwet Privaatrecht]
, the Crisis and Recovery Act [Crisis- en herstelwet], the
City and Environment Interim Act [Interimwet stad-en-milieubenadering], the Expropriation

agree  philgoddard: This is a good translation because it explains what the law is, rather than taking the easy option of rendering it literally.

"OBLIGATIONS TO TOLERATE

In connection with the construction of public works the government sometimes requires the cooperation of landowners or other rightholders in respect of immovable property. Think of the installation of electricity grids and gas pipes or of the construction of the lights of the approach route of an airfield or a sewerage system, for example. Because expropriation is in many cases a (too) severe measure the government makes more and more use of the imposition of an obligation to tolerate. The Public Works (Removal of Impediments in Private Law) Act and the Water Act are examples of acts that make it possible to force a landowner to tolerate the construction or installation of a work on or in his land."

agree  philgoddard: If it's the first of these, their suggested translation is perfect. But we still need the Dutch context, which is presumably why you've put this as a reference comment rather than an answer.
4 mins
  -> if it's followed by "Privaatrecht ", which Asker says it is, my guess is it's the first one
