The A11 Brugge Motorway opens to traffic

22 September 2017

On the 1st September 2017 the A11 Brugge Design, Build, Finance and Maintain (DBFM) Motorway in Belgium, was successfully opened to traffic after approximately 3.5 years of strict planning, management and construction. The project, part of the Trans-European Transport (TEN-T) network, consists of a 13km 2-lane highway which completes the missing link between the N31 at Brugge and the N49 at Knokke. The Motorway contains more than 90 structures including the longest integral viaduct in Europe, two bascule bridges and three tunnels, and is the largest DBFM road project in Belgium to date. 

This project was one of the six major missing links in the Flemish road network and will now reduce the current congestion in the region as well as facilitate the planned increases of traffic in the port of Zeebrugge to the north of Belgium. The Flemish authority expects that 3 million vehicles per year will use the new connection. 

Steer Davies Gleave provided Lenders’ Technical Advisory (LTA) services to the project, and more information about our role can be found here
