The construction of these new tram lines is part of the Flemish government’s Master Plan 2020. Ultimately, it aims to improve traffic and the quality of life of Antwerp’s residents. And for good reason! This project not only includes the construction of new tram lines, but also improvements in road safety. This includes, large avenues being redesigned, public spaces being redeveloped and connections between some roads, squares and neighbourhoods improved with simplified access for pedestrians and cyclists; meaning the city can be reached by all means of transport.
