SPV General Manager Geert Deleebeeck outlines the background to the Brabo 2 project.
“The project involved three contracts — one DBFM contract concerning the tram development, one DBFM contract concerning the non-tram part (roads) and a DBF contract concerning a short tunnel, two moving bridges, public space, and underground parking.
“It was part of an agreement between the Flemish Government and the City of Antwerp to deliver the ‘Master Plan 2020’ which was aimed at enhancing traffic infrastructure (both tram and roads) in and around the city of Antwerp, in the north of Belgium.”
