Concrete safety barriers are also being put in place on the central reservation. During the day traffic will be limited to 2 lanes, while at night traffic will be limited to just 1 lane. The work should have been completed by 4pm on Friday.
The Flemish Highways and Traffic Agency believes that as two lanes will remain open during the day, disruption should be kept to a minimum. However, the Agency’s Sylvie Syryn told VRT News that “We will be monitoring the situation closely. If it is busier than expected we will activate the overhead electronic signs to give information on alternative routes”.
