It’s already a mess on the roads: major traffic jams recorded on the E40 towards the sea

Generally, traffic was heavy in and around major northern population centers due to the hot weather. A phenomenon combined at the start of the weekend. Many people looking for freshness therefore took the road to the Coast on Friday afternoon because of the good weather expected this weekend, creating queues from Aalst. In addition, three vehicles collided around 3:15 p.m. near Wetteren. A car could not join the hard shoulder and had to be towed. The right lane was therefore cut off to traffic for a long time until a 9 kilometer traffic jam was created. Traffic was delayed for over an hour.

According to the Flemish traffic management centre, motorists leaving Brussels via the E40 in the direction of Ghent and the sea should expect a longer journey time for part of the evening.
