Is there any info when the installation of the new markers should be done?

Is there any official date when the N49/A11 rededication will get in force? (or when it came in force)

I noticed the existing 100m markers on the E19 between Brussels and Antwerp have been turned to face the traffic. What a waste of effort if they are going to be replaced anyway.

(Belgians excited about road markers, since every large project is halted )

Non existent as of now. They are just resurfacing some parts and some some 'smart' paint jobs that will alter the flow of traffic.

The rest has to wait untill omewhere 2019.

The new highway A11 from Brugge to Knokke is finished. The 'most expensive highway in Flanders' will be open to traffic on september 1st.

Drawbridge on a new motorway? Isn't it going to create huge traffic jams?

I know that some drawbridges have been built on early Dutch motorways and that they have mostly been replaced by aquaducts, so I think it's weird to have a new motorway with a drawbridge.

A large lift bridge was built recently on Dutch A15 in Rotterdam. The Netherlands also plans to build a new movable bridge on A27 in Gorinchem. So it isn't completely out of style.

The problem with these movable bridges is that the technology becomes increasingly complex and is prone to malfunctions.

According to a new police rule (that is soon to be passed) speed excesses of less than 7 kph will not be punished anymore on urban and rural roads and under 9 kph on highways or expressways.

This means that the first 10 kph flatrate of a fine (amount 53 €) will star from 129 kph to 139 kph on a motorway for example (instead of 121 kph).

Is that new piece of the A11 eventually supposed to be (or is it already) incorporated in the E34? If so, how is it marked?

It should yes. They just started to replace all plates next to the road (localization marks). I guess they will put E34/A11 here (as for N49)

Isn't E34 already assigned to the existing N49 all the way to Knokke?
The signage are already installed and just mention A11, so i guess the km markers will not contain an E number.

Wikipedia mentions that the E number that was reserved for this (approximate) route is E404.
But I guess they skipped this number, fearing people might get lost.

I saw an article a month or so ago about changes to the Flemish road-numbering system; applying the A11 and/or E34 designations across the N49 was one of the changes, I think.

Unfortunately, I don't remember where the article was, but I read Dutch and have added a few Dutch and Flemish sites to my Facebook feed so I can keep up. Probably the VRT or De Standaard.

If I got the article right, the signs should be replaced by the end of 2017.

I'll drive the new A11 and N49 next week and will report...

E404 is actually designated by UNECE to Jabbeke - Zeebrugge but is not signed anywhere due to the lack of a logical route between those termini. The new A11 is not E404, it runs farther east. I believe it is not E34 either.

Thanks.
If I remember correctly what I read, though, it was supposed to affect the whole of the N49. Even though it's not all up to motorway standards, it was a matter of making navigation easier.
