Construction in and around Mechelen City Centre
At the beginning of October 2019, construction began on the connection from the Tangent to four major access roads in Mechelen. Safe passage for pedestrians and cyclists remains available. Car traffic will still be possible in all directions, but a slower flow of traffic will need to be taken into account.
Meanwhile, work is also continuing on the renovation of two hazardous intersections on the Mechelen ring road (R6). The renewal of the intersections with bridges (flyovers) over the Liersesteenweg (N14) and the Antwerpsesteenweg (N1) will make traffic on the Mechelen ring road safer and smoother.
