The project consists of three pillars:
- The construction of a new lock, which will provide a second nautical access to the inner port. This will ensure that business and jobs will be anchored in the region for the long-term.
- The construction of the new road 'Nx', which separates through-traffic and port traffic from local traffic. This improved mobility will reduce the current traffic congestion in and around central Zeebrugge.
- An improvement of the existing infrastructure and facilities in the project area to ensure liveability. Which makes it pleasant to live and work here after the works are complete.
