Nice but slightly dated picture of the R0/E40 intersection on the western side of the R0.

For a God sake!!, can the Belgian transfer the signs work to Dutch specialists??!! Why is so easy, pro and efficient to drive on Dutch roads and motorways compare to completely chaos roads in Belgium!!??
2nd that. Took the wrong exit also...

Just a freaking nightmare if you drive there with all the traffic and no knowlegde of the right way at all.

Why are you putting up signs then?

But overall in Vlaanderen is it quite ok, in the other Belgium it's not. Try to learn in the first place: be consequent in the places you point at.
- For sign 1 its city a and b.
- For sign 2 (3km further) its city b and c
- For sign 3 (4km further) its city a and c

And place them in ******* sight! Walonians...

About that exit just after the Vilvoorde viaduct: that exit will be closed in a couple of years. They're making a new exit that branches off from the road towards E19 Mechelen/Antwerpen. That's also the reason for those road works.

I tried to fix your posting code but I didn't work. you need to have a direct link for the images from the hosting website. Otherwise the insert won't work.


EDIT; I fixed your code with the direct link, however the immages are quite large. I would be good to resize them on the hosting website.

normally this one

[img]direct link[/img]

But the immages worked for like two minutes afther I used the correct link and now the code is broken again. It must have something to do with the hosting webiste I guess. It gives code 403. Wich means it's forbidden to use direct link from hosting website.

A11

The new A11-N49 interchange near Westkapelle will be partially put into service tomorrow. The direction Antwerpen > Brugge will use the new underpass of the future A11, and then follow a temporary road to N376.

Aha, traffic is now switched to the north side of the bridge. Is there still a speed camera to enforce the low speed limit of what was it, 50 or 60 km/h?

What's wrong with this sign? Could not be clearer what lane to take to go to Antwerp. Did you missed it? https://www.google.be/maps/@50.9071596,4.430159,3a,75y,169.09h,90.83t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sqYh4NpLrZlvqVTVDrD_Tgg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=nl

If you actually read his post you'd see that he didn't miss his exit by driving past it, but by taking one exit too early (exit 5: Machelen-Woluwelaan). The sign you link to is irrelevant as it is after exit 5.

Hey, the traffic has indeed been reduced to two lanes and no exit to the E25 direction to Maastricht. But on Monday, the right lane on the south side will be reopened. Works are to be completed in early 2017 : http://viaducs-herstal.blogspot.be/

The speed camera at 70 km/h has been removed and it only brought back rarely (some weeks ago for the last time).

N31 Brugge

Construction started today on the N31-N351 in Brugge. They are going to replace the intersection with a grade-separated interchange, eliminating the last traffic lights on N31 through the city. It's planned for completion late 2017 or early 2018.

6 years ago the section of the E40 between Heverlee & Sterrebeek opened to traffic again in both directions. The motorway had been extensively renovated.

Last week plans for another renovation have been presented to the public. After 6 years of heavy traffic, the motorway no longer looks as fresh as it did in 2010. The 2010 renovation featured the narrowing of the median, newer and taller lighting and a resurfacing of the old concrete with new layers of Very Open Asphalt. In the 2017 renovation, the 40 year old concrete will be completely removed.

The Freeway was constructed in the 70's to connect Luik (Liège) to Brussels. The Heverlee Interchange was already constructed in the 70's but only connected Leuven Dowtown to the new E40 with an also newly constructed expressway.

The original layout featured 2x3 lanes. After the A2(E314) was constructed, the freeway was widened between Heverlee and Sint-Stevens-Woluwe to 4 lanes, westbound. The eastbound direction got an rushhour expresslane in 2013.

Back in the day I made this video



I also drove on the same section of the E40, featured in one my more recent video's. (starting at 1:35)

Could someone explain the situation on the R0 at Machelen? It seems that the plan is to fully open the interchange with the Brussels Ring upgrade starting in 2019, though it will only provide access to the R22.

So my question is, why has the interchange not been fully opened already, given it is essentially complete?
