Oosterweel Link

 As from 2019, the construction of the Oosterweel link will start. This infrastructural project will close the R1 ring road around Antwerp. Linkeroever, the port of Antwerp, het Eilandje, Merksem and the Noordersingel area will directly be connected to each other. The purposes of the infrastructural project are: fewer traffic congestions, fewer accidents and an improved quality of life in the Antwerp region.
