The Sluiskiltunnel crosses the Canal from Ghent to Terneuzen and is located on the route of the N62. Every day, on average, more than 17,000 vehicles use the tunnel with a length of 1.3 kilometers. Before the tunnel was built, all this traffic had to cross the existing bridge over the Ghent-Terneuzen canal. Since the Ghent-Terneuzen canal is also a very busy canal, it was decided to create a tunnel here, in this case a bored tunnel.
Commissioned by: BAM TBI consortium
Geoconstruct was responsible for the design of the building pit at the start and the end of the bored part of the tunnel.
