Zeebrugge announces roadworks launch

Port of Zeebrugge has announced that from Monday 4 May onward, roadworks have started and will disrupt port traffic until September through the different phases of the works.

In a first phase (4 May – 11 May) traffic will have to follow a deviation via the internal port road due to the works on the railroad crossing as work on the Alfred Ronsestraat (N350) road connecting the Pierre Vandammesluis and the A11 commences. The Belgian port and the terminals will remain accessible at all times during the roadworks.

According to the announcement, aside from the repair works to the railroad crossing, the concrete road surface will also be renewed at several locations and the drainage facilities will be adapted.

In the second phase, which runs from 11 May – September 2020, the traffic from the A11 towards Zeebrugge will be able to pass on one lane. The traffic from Zeebrugge towards the A11 is being deviated via the Barlenhuisstraat and the Aziëstraat.

In the first half of September, roadworks will also start at the Isabellalaan which, however, will cause no traffic deviations.
