in 2005 they decided the road will never be build. yet they are going to upgrade part of the N38 wich is now a 2x2 road with no divider towards poperinge untill the crossing with N8 where a new road shall connect towards Veurne.

However, Nimby's have been blocking the project for years so don't expect something will ever change to the current situation.

Typically roads constructed in the 60ties and 70ties have these setup in Belgium.Probably there used to be a suicide lane in the middle and the road had hard shoulders and is now widened to a 2x2 road with no dividers.

In places where such roads have lower traffic volumes they have chosen a 2+1/1+2 set up in most cases though or deleted the entire suicide lane. I know several streches of road in Belgium that still have suicide lanes.

Former suicide lane road near my town, now a 1+1:

same road but on this strecht higher speed limit and traffic volumes and now a 2x2 setup:

Same road but now a 2+1/1+2 setup:

Another such 2X2 road in the neighbouring city. Just to make a point they are very very common

Nearby where I live, the suicide lane was replaced with a bus lane. It made the bus service a lot more stable in the morning and evening:

They all seem to be numbered cycle paths / footpaths. Not sure if that's it though.

They include a variety of roads that sometimes are open or not open for motorised traffic. Some T-nummers are also Touristic routes. Mainly bycicle and pedestrian routes that have been layed out specifically to connect two urban centers split by e.g.: A motorway, a canal, a forest and industrial area ect... are also indicated with T.

In Brussels roads leading through the ZoniŽn Forest are indicated with T yet sometimes it suddenly changes to N. I have no idea why.

The T numbering looks like a mess and it looks like it needs a cleanup. Maybe they where initialy ment to be Touristic routes but their use has been forgotten overtime, also because Touristic routes are now indicated with another system wich is to be the same in the EUregio.

Old N2 route. Again most parts old concrete. Strip mall like shops and houses scattered everywhere.

Assent-->Diest--->Herk-de-stad
