On 2 August 2017, renovations at the bridge (Canal Bocholt-Herentals) and the pedestrian bridge (Congo canal, Residential buildings and Lakehouse) will start. Study the alternative route on the map below.
The aim of the public contractor, Renotec NV, is to finish renovations by end of September 2017. During this period, no traffic is allowed over the bridge, except for pedestrians and cyclists. Below you can find a map of the deviation route, recommended for visitors.
At the pedestrian bridge as well, crossing is still possible for pedestrians and cyclists for the majority of the time. Depending on the works that are being carried out at that moment, minimal hindrance can occur. Of course the contractor will organise his work in a way that nuisance is kept to a minimum.
