Another thing, the man made King Albert Canal needs to be widened at some points to be able to carry the newest and biggest ships. In order for that to happen some of the older roadway bridges need to be demolished. Belgium wouldn't be Belgium if it didn't go with a party

I've made 2 new vids:

1. B401 Gent, which connects the E17 freeway with the city-centre of Gent.


2. The R4 (Ring Gent) freewaysection. (with a littlebit too much zoom)

First video is so typical... They only resurfaced some small parts of the road instead of doing the WHOLE road in the same time... The result is just ridiculous.

And those bridges when you enter Ghent are appalling.

No, it's another north-south connection, in the Antwerp province, between Kasterlee and Geel.

There is also a new section of the North_South connection planned in Limburg yes ,But that's a differend road, the N74. The one in Limburg is the N. Parst of it will be tunneled but not as much as first proposed. The connection is really needed but as for now, will still not get build because of protests...

From Hechtel to the Dutch border it is a highway, and there it stops being a highway because the Dutch gouvernment didn't want to make the connection (hence the problems in Valkenswaard these days), but from Hechtel towards Hasselt, the most busy part of the road it is a 2x2 road that goes trought the core of some villages so they want to fix that...

Innitial plans where a highway from the E40 to Eindhoven. N80 Expressway starts today in Sint-Truiden and runs up to Hasselt, there the origional tracé of that highway changes to N74. N80 also lacking proper connection to the E40 highway runs also further south into Namur.

I driven on it last week and I must say some of the LED lighting in the bridges are cinfusing while driving in the dark!. On the other hand much better! I know before you had to look out for trucks behind you when braking for entering that giant circle because they ofthen just keep on driving at to much speed and had a hard time braking when a car did...

Lummen is certainly not the only motorway intersection with ponds in it. In the Netherlands, we've got a few too. Never heard anything about smells or comparable complaints. Though I am not really sure why they create these ponds.

Anyway, one horror intersection gone, but Belgium has got a few motorway intersections with conflicts to go. Top of the list: Cheratte between E40 and E25.
