Bridges R4 - Oostakker

Description 

In May 2014 Franki Construct, together with its associated company  Aswebo, started constructing the new Schansakker access and exit complex on the R4 in Oostakker.
The new road complex consists of two viaducts over the R4 four-lane motorway and an access and exit point on the R4 to and from Destelbergen.
The existing bridge on the Eksaarderijweg has also been renovated.

During the construction of the viaducts, traffic on the R4 has not been interrupted. For this reason the formwork of the bridges is built over the roadway.

Franki Construct built the two on-site cast post-tensioned viaducts. Aswebo is executed the infrastructure works and the renovation of the existing bridge.

In October 2015 the new crossroads were put in service.
 

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.

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