Belgian seaside resort gets make-over

08 okt 2019

Tractebel Urban experts are working on one of the largest infrastructure projects planned on the Belgian coast.

Knokke-Heist, on the Belgian coast, will soon get a make-over with the support of Tractebel Urban experts from several disciplines, including transport infrastructure, spatial design, mobility and structural engineering. 

Among the major changes and improvements aiming at enhancing quality of life is the replacement of a 2 km through-route. To bring the town’s restaurant zone and northern coastal areas closer together, the through-road will be reduced from 2 x 2 lanes to 2 x 1 lane. The road's green nature will be enhanced and new open spaces created. New esplanade, landscaped garden and pedestrian squares will create high-value desirable spaces, each with its own character. A notable addition will be a large municipal roof that will provide all-weather protection for public events.

The project was formally presented at a public information meeting on 12 September by the project team, including Tractebel staff. The event attracted over a thousand residents who posed a range of questions related to the project, timing and phasing.

“As project leader, I’m very proud of the realisation of the new entry into Heist. This design has been achieved thanks to the great collaboration within our multidisciplinary team and with the various external partners” said Vincent Depry, Project Leader.
