Bredabaan - Merksem


Bredabaan in Merksem was reconstructed from Minister Delbekelaan to Molenlei in 2013. Bredabaan is now a pedestrian shopping street with 2 vehicle lanes, bicycle paths and footpaths, a new tram infrastructure, parking strips and a new Burgemeester Jozef Nolfplein.
Aannemingen Van Wellen not only took care of the construction of a tramway in reinforced concrete, a vehicle lane in 3-layer asphalt, a bicycle path in red asphalt and a footpath in granite tiles, it also carried out the drainage works. The works involved thrust boring in long sections and trench shoring using secant piles. The construction of a tram track with a pre-assembled rail system was another challenge that we were able to rise to at Aannemingen Van Wellen.

Willemen Infra - the largest Belgian road construction company - came into being on 1 July 2018 as a result of the merger between Aswebo, Aannemingen Van Wellen and the infrastructure department of Kumpen.
