The reconstruction of the Posthoorn, between Ooststraat and Kapellestraat in Boekhoute, will start on November 7. If the weather is good, the work will take 30 working days, or six weeks.
This involves major works involving demolition and renovation of the road and foundation. There will be new gutters and asphalt. The sewerage system is also renovated where necessary. The construction zone will not be accessible, not even for residents: they can only reach their home on foot or by bicycle. The intersections of Posthoorn with Wildestraat and Kapellestraat are closed to all traffic.
Traffic coming from Philippine towards Boekhoute will be diverted via Braakmanstraat. Traffic from the Netherlands towards Assenede must detour via Hollekenstraat. Those coming from Assenede should follow the diversion via the N458 and Braakmanstraat.
Adapted public transport
Anyone who takes public transport should also take a number of changes into account, says municipal councilor Trees Van Eykeren (Anders). “Lines 52 and 96 will not run to Boekhoutedorp. There will be important replacement stops in Weststraat and Molenplein. For those who normally use the stop in Kapellestraat or Knotwilgenstraat, a replacement stop will be provided in Basseveldestraat and Leegstraat.”
