R2 closed during the night of 13 November

Elia will carry out works on the high-voltage grid above the R2 in Antwerp during the night between Tuesday 13 November and Wednesday 14 November 2018. As part of the Brabo II project, between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. Elia will disconnect various high-voltage lines and remove them from the grid. Pulling machines will be used to take the high-voltage cables from the pylons and pull them over the R2 at a low altitude. They will then be taken away and disposed of. To this end, Elia needs to close the R2 in both directions for a few hours, between the Lillo complex (no. 12) and the Port of Antwerp (Antwerpen-Haven) complex. 

Please note: If due to poor weather conditions the works cannot be performed during the night between Tuesday 13 November and Wednesday 14 November, they will be carried out one day later.
