Intersection R4-East - Oostakker


Junction 8 is the junction between the R4-Oost and Langerbruggestraat in Oostakker (sub-municipality of Ghent). The existing light-regulated intersection is being replaced by a ‘Hollands’ connection complex. 

This involves the construction of a bridge over the R4 and over the railroad tracks (line 204), the construction of access and exit roads to Ghent and Zelzate using reinforced soil and creating two roundabouts with the necessary connections. A bicycle tunnel will be constructed under the exit from Ghent and an access road developed for the Port of Ghent between Imsakkerlaan and the new complex.


Willemen Infra came into being on 1 July 2018 as a result of the merger between Aswebo, Aannemingen Van Wellen and the infrastructure department of Kumpen and is a leading road builder and asphalt and concrete manufacturer.

Since 1998 Franki Construct has been part of Willemen Groep, the largest family construction group in Belgium.
