Road Works Management Noorderlijn Antwerp

Road works management during the improvement works of the Noorderlijn in Antwerp

TML assists the roadworks management for the Brabo 2 project in Antwerp. This project includes the Northern Tram Line and some roadwork. The works run from March 2016 to July 2019. The Northern Line (more info on www.noorderlijn.be) ensures smooth a tram connection from the city centre, “Het Eilandje” and the north of the city. In the future, the tram will also operate, for example, the Red Star Line Museum, the MAS on “Het Eilandje” and the new Park & Ride at the Noorderlaan junction with the A12. The underground tramway under the Turnhoutsebaan (“de Reuzenpijp”) is extended and will connect to the Frankrijklei.

Some roads along the route of the Northern Line get a new look. The ‘noordelijke Leien’ are renovated, as well as RooseveltPlaats and Operaplein. A lot of intersections are better and safer equipped.

TML assists Tram Contractors, the building consortium, with the roadworks management. We collaborate on the planning of the works, the organization of the BLVC meetings (Bereikbaarheid - accessibility , Leefbaarheid - quality of life , Veiligheid - security and Communicatie - communications) and produce the BLVC documents. Moreover, we draft the signal plans for the traffic lights, we provide assistance on the elaboration of the signalisation maps (maps with the traffic signs and road markings) and on communication.
