Road transport plays a crucial role in connecting the Port of Antwerp to its hinterland because of its central location in the European road network. The port is surrounded by an extensive network of motorways with direct and rapid connections to all major industrial centres in Flanders, Wallonia, the Netherlands, Germany, France and many other destinations in Europe.

Upcoming roadworks on the truck flow at AGW

In the coming months there will be regular changes to the truck flow as part of the expansion of the terminal capacity. 

Situation as from 08.03.2021

  • From 8 March, truck traffic towards the terminal will be split after the railway tunnel. The flow to P2 and L21-30 will no longer run via the roundabout, but will be routed directly to the roadway. Diversion signs will be provided near the works. 

Please drive extra carefully and take into account the signage.
