Hi Marijn,

I don't think duplication is necessarily a bad thing. The links at the 
top provide a fast way to get somewhere when you know (generally) where 
you want to go, while the new side menu is designed to be usable by 
someone who's just come to the website for the first time.

Ultimately I suspect there's quite a lot of things that could be changed 
  to make the site better if a close look was taken. The idea behind my 
proposed new side menu was that it is something quick to implement that 
would have a large improvement on the site navigation.

My personal opinion is that the site probably really needs a total redesign.
