Road Works Impact Management bridges Albert canal

17032 / 18050
From 2016 to 2020
With almost forty millions of tons of transported goods, the Albert canal is the most important waterway in Flanders.  Due to the increase in volume of container transport in the course of the past decennia, an increase in capacity is necessary. However, the current limits as to vertical and horizontal clearance of the existing bridges create bottlenecks.  That is why the Flemish Waterways will increase the height of all bridges crossing the canal to a vertical clearance of 9,10 m within the period of 2017 and 2020, so that inland vessels with four layers of containers can smoothly navigate through. 
TML supports contractor Franki on the development of a Road Works Impact Management Plan related to the construction works at the bridges of the Albert canal. More specifcally, TML has developed the road works impact managemtnt plan for the proposal of Cluster I (7 bridges), the execution of cluster I and the proposal for Cluster II (8 bridges; execution hasn't been started yet).

TML’s Expertise:
In order to develop a Road Works Impact Management Plan for all municipalities concerned, TML will build on its specific expertise related to impact management and traffic management.
TML will conduct an impact- and riskanalysis in order to determine a set of appropriate measures to manage the road works impact.  This includes, amongst others, temporary road surfacing with asphalt, traffic light management in the surroundings of the construction site, and the optimalisation of deviations, taking into account all possible and/or existing interferences.
