Projects U/C

Transformation of the N49 expressway Antwerp-Northsea to a normal motorway, the A11/E34, is slowly making progress. Between Antwerp and Zelzate, there is only one same-level crossing left, near Kruisstraat.

Another big project is the prestigious Oosterweelbridge which, when completed, should close the inner ring road of Antwerp.

The E40 towards Leuven

While driving back home I stumbled upon a true 1x3 road with suicide lane, the N2 between Leuven and Diest. Driving it was a new experience for me:

^^Suicide lane is logically not the official name, I know that. It's just a commonly used name for such lanes. There aren't many left of them though because of safety problems. (Hence that unflattering name;)) Most of them are converted into 2+1 roads.
