There's one on the Internet somewhere, not sure I can find it again....

EDIT:
I found it, but it's one of those sites where each page doesn't have its own URL, so:
go to www.autosnelwegen.net,
click on the B in the upper left,
then click on "Ringwegen [R]" (or the links to the right of that in other languages - they all bring you to the same quadrilingual page).

Thanks. Now I will make crazy things with them. So there's no ringroads on Luxemburg and Namur provinces...

Some questions:
Where's Luik? (Liège)
Where's Bergen? In Norway? (No, Mons)
Where's Anvers? (Antwerpen)
And others that a driver will ask on a drive through Belgium

Edit: The thanks goes to Palance, who made the webpage.

Or did someone just not finish the list? Doubtful, but those provinces would be at the end, in numerical order.... I'd check it against, say, Wikipedia.

These links are often hidden in the main address bar, but can be seen on the lower right when hovering the mouse over a link, or you can copy the link location like this:

Thanks for visiting my site Of course every page has its own URL, I am using frames to prevent that visitors should leave the navigation bare and get lost.

And now something commpletely different: No highways (except the last part) but a trip though the industrial area of Antwerpen. It starts on the R2 and ends on the Dutch border.

When I saw those blacked-out texts on a couple of the last signs, I thought for a second you were somewhere along the linguistic frontier....

And that very last sign, with the Dutch route number on top and the Belgian number inside? I'm not sure what to make of that. Is that on the Belgian side of the border (if you're already in Holland, I'd expect only the Dutch number, heading in that direction)? Because if so, it would make more sense to me to reverse the position of the route numbers: The (Belgian) A12 on top because that's the route you're on - at least that's what a route number on top of a sign would mean in France - and the (Dutch) A4 together with the destinations, so as to say "Rotterdam and Bergen-op-Zoom via the A4."

Extreme hot weather causes damage to Brussels ring (article in French):

Holes formed in the two left lanes (does that mean one each direction?)

In this case the language stays the same, only the name of the country changes The blacked-out text was "Douane" (customs).

Tha last picture: The sign is still in Belgium (You could see the Dutch EU-sign in the background). The road is still A12 here, and the Dutch road A4. Indeed, one of those roadnumbers is useless here.

A lot of Dutchmen started their summer vacation, and waited until past the weekend to watch the WC final. As often, the E19 is a major chokepoint, and the result was an 80(!) kilometer traffic jam stretching from Antwerpen to Gorinchem in the Netherlands.

Funnily enough, there were no problems at the Maastricht traffic lights, most people apparently preferred the route via Antwerpen - Brussel. (it is a few km shorter than via Liège if you're coming from Utrecht and your destination is south of Luxembourg).

I read over the weekend (my interest in Belgium is almost - almost - as pathological as your knowledge of every fricking road in the world :-) ) that the Cointe tunnel (A602/E25) will be closed for most of the summer. Which is a good reason to avoid Liège.

Interesting, didn't know that.

There are some errors in that story though. E40 doesn't run through the Cointe tunnel and E45 is nowhere near Belgium.

Severe weather also affected Belgium. Several motorways were closed or inaccessible after many downed trees blocked traffic. Underpasses filled with water and a church in Ciney was severely damaged by a tornado. Air traffic was suspended for a period of time at Brussels Airport.

Hey!
I herad they are reconstructing the interchange of A19 and the R8 Ring Kortrijk/Courtrai. Does anybody know how it will look like? And are there still plans to ckose the gap on the southern side of the ring paralleling A14? Is it really necessary so close to the neighboring highway or is local traffic so intense? If you have photos of this part of the ring (resp. the southeastern/southwestern terminus), I would be really interested!
