Roadworks in the port

The port's accessibility is important to companies, customers and employees. To optimise this accessibility, roadworks are planned over the coming months in and around the port area which may cause some disruption in the short term. Here we present a list of the main projects, to help you reduce the impact on goods transport and commuter traffic.

Temporary delays at the Berendecht and Zandvliet locks due to replacement of the bridge locking mechanisms

Project: replacement of the locking mechanisms of the two western bridges at the Berendrecht and Zandvliet locks. This will have an impact on the traffic situation on the Scheldelaan (N101).

Periode: 1 March - 31 May 2019

Diversion: only one of the two crossings over the locks will be available, except when a vessel is passing one of the two bridges in which case the bridges at both ends of the lock will be open and traffic will have to stop.

Cars and light vans (below 3.5 tonnes): will still be able to cross over the lock gates.

Trucks (over 3.5 tonnes): temporary diversion via the A12.
