Overview of road works in the Antwerp port area.
The accessibility of Port of Antwerp-Bruges is important for the companies, customers and people who work there. In various parts of the port area we are working to improve the infrastructure for vehicle and cycle traffic. This causes temporary inconvenience from time to time. View the overview of all road works.
In collaboration with Lantis and the Roads and Traffic Agency, we provide an overview of the construction sites that have the most impact on road traffic in and around the Antwerp port area. In this regard, we endeavour to keep the port as accessible as possible for all users, also during the works on the Oosterweel link.
