Belgium - UPDATE Brexit: Port of Zeebrugge

The imminent Brexit probably will cause heavy traffic jams on all roads around the port of Zeebrugge.
Consequently for exceptional transport (temporary) restrictions will be applied, in order not to put an extra charge on/congest the infrastructure and to avoid traffice-dangerous conflicts.
The situation will be monitored continuously, evaluated and adjusted where necessary.

All exceptional transport will be prohibited from 28/12/2020 until 31/12/20 (included) on the N31 between the complex with A11 (on and exit) and the connection with the N34 (in both directions).


Subsequent exceptional transport will be prohibited on selected roads from 01.01.2021 on (until further notice):
  - All exceptional transport wider than 3m50
  - All exceptional transport that must cross train or tram tracks on its route
  - All exceptional transport that has to perform a maneuver against traffic

The restrictions apply to the following roads around the port of Zeebrugge:
 - N31 between complex A11 and the western outer port (in both directions).
 - A11 between complex N31 and complex N49 (direction N31)
 - N31 between connection N31/N32 and complex A11 (direction A11)
 - N348 - N350 between ramp and exit A11 and eastern outer port (in both directions)
 - N34 between connection N34/N31 and connection N34/N350 (roundabout Minerva included, in both directions)
 - Detour A11 : N371 - roundaboud N371/N31 - Zeelaan - Stationsweg - Pathoekeweg - Bridge of Dudzele - port ring road south - N348 (in both directions).


A (first) evaluation will follow on Friday 8 January 2021.

If possible, the above prohibitions are lifted in certain time windows.

Attention : The statutory traffic bans for exceptional transport (Royal Resolution 02/06/10 art. 30) stay into force
