Big delays on the coast-bound E40 after a string of accidents

Drivers be warned. There are big delays on the coast-bound E40 motorway after a string of accidents. Those planning to travel to coast face an addition of more than an hour to their journey times.  The Flemish Travel Centre advises motorists to take alternative routes.  

Accidents in Wetteren, Drongen and Nevele (all East Flanders) have all resulted in lane closures. Although the accident in Nevele had been cleared by noon, the other accidents were still causing delays.  

The Flemish Traffic Centre advises motorists to seek alternative routes. Those wishing to travel to the coast from Ghent or Antwerp are advised to use the E34 trunk road.
