Safe and smooth for inland navigation, rail and road traffic
The Wilmarsdonk and Oosterweel bridges are at the end of their useful life and in need of replacement. Port of Antwerp-Bruges wants to take this opportunity to improve traffic flow and road safety on the main axes of the Oosterweel island, in addition to replacing these bridges. The intention is to aim towards a transition to smooth and safe road and rail traffic, as well as unobstructed passage for inland navigation.
The purpose of this project is to redevelop various traffic infrastructure in the north-south axis of the Oosterweel island to address current problems (mobility, traffic safety and ageing infrastructure), as well as future challenges.
