Brussels, 8 April 2021
In a statement, the Port of Antwerp announced the expansion of its parking spaces available for trucks on the left bank of the Scheldt to prevent container congestion, thus going up to 280 places with all the necessary facilities for truckers.
The car park will be located between the Ketenislaan and the Scheldt, just north of the Kallo lock and will open in the spring of 2022.
In addition, the car park will serve as an overflow car park for in case the queues at one or more terminals would become too long. The number of free places will be included in the same app as the car parks along the Flemish motorways.
The car park will be equipped with sufficient and regularly maintained sanitary facilities, showers and WIFI, as well as vending machines with drinks and food.
The Port is investing €7 million in the Ketenis car park and another 0.4 million in an upgrade of the truck parking on the right bank (Goordijk). The project is supported by the European fund “Connecting Europe Facility”.Source: Port Technology
