DESCRIPTION

Two new bridges on one of the busiest thoroughfares in Belgium.

The existing bridges are over 68 years old and need to be replaced.

In order to ensure traffic during works in both directions, a temporary bridge was built. In a first phase, the north side of the existing bridges was demolished and the south part will be demolished during a next phase. The bridges will be replaced by two new and larger structures with better noise barriers. The new decks are equipped with three lanes and a wide road in both directions. Later, a fourth track can be added, if necessary. The work should be completed by the end of October 2018.
