Katrien Van Rompay, Lantis Contract Manager, will present on why NEC4 contracts are being used to procure over half of a new €3.5 billion (£3 billion) ring road in Antwerp, Belgium - one of the largest NEC contracts let to date worldwide.
Lantis, a Flemish government company responsible for delivering mobility infrastructure in Antwerp, is building a 15km dual carriageway called Oosterweel Link to complete and improve the city’s frequently congested R1 ring road.
The project involves constructing a series of tunnels under the river Scheldt, the docks area and Albert Canal to the north of the city, as well as dropping a 4km mostly elevated section of the existing ring road into cuttings and cut-and-cover tunnels. The aim is to reduce congestion, traffic noise and air pollution and to improve the quality of life of neighbourhoods close to the ring road, delivering a total social benefit of over €10 billion.
All works on the right bank, including all tunnelling works apart from the river crossing, will be let using the NEC4 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) Option C (target contract with activity schedule).
This session will be chaired by NEC4 Board member Ian Heaphy and there will be an interactive Q&A session after the presentation where delegates are invited to pose questions to the speakers.
