Oosterweel connection – completing the Ring of Antwerp

The Oosterweel project’s purpose is to build a Ring that connects the districts of Antwerp and offer a faster and more sustainable alternative for traffic.

The plan involves the construction of 35 kilometres of new bicycle paths, bicycle bridges, bicycle tunnels and additional Park & Rides.

New tunnels will be built under the Schelde river, the America dock and the Albert Canal. In addition, many parts of the ring will be covered, thus moving the traffic underground and creating space for parks, squares, bicycles and walking paths.

Splendid was involved in the pre-design phase of the project, with all capabilities.

The Roads & Utilities and Structural Design Architectural  teams joined forces and collaborated closely with our partner designers to deliver the BIM design of highways, tunnels, additional structures, landscapes and water management.

Our Design Automation & Databases experts created customized tools and workflows for all parties involved in the project. 

Earthworks, quantity take-offs, cost estimations, compliance with specific client’s standards are some of the processes where our application had a substantial impact on the efficiency of the project.

Visualization supported the communication department in displaying the initiative to a larger audience with the help of rendered images and videos.
We are looking forward to the next phase of the project: the final design.


We are ready for the next challenge.
