The challenge for the Vlaamse Waterweg is to raise the 62 bridges over the Albert Canal to a clearance height of 9.10 m by 2022. The most complex bridges - 15 in total - have been bundled into two separate PPP projects, in which the bridges will be rebuilt based on a DBFM formula. A consortium around our group has been awarded the contract for both PPP files. De Vlaamse Waterweg particularly appreciated our efforts to carry out the work with minimum disruption to all stakeholders and our creative financing solution. For 30 years, we have been responsible for the maintenance of the bridges with an average cost of €1.25 million per year.

It's about the bridges in Eigenbilzen, Zutendaal, Stokrooie, Zwartenhoek, Eindhout, Geel-Stelen, Herentals-Lier (all cluster 1), Beringen, Paal-Tervant, Meerhout-Vorst, Lummen, Oelegem II (Ranst), Herentals-Herenthoutsesteenweg, Kuringen and the Hoogmolenbrug in Schoten (all cluster 2).
