R4 Highways development, Gent

We've been the lenders’ technical advisor for a €101M highways development in Gent, Belgium. The project is being funded through a public private partnership by Via R4 Gent – a special purpose vehicle set up to implement the design, construction, financing and maintenance of the highway.

Challenge

The project has involved constructing 4km of eastbound carriageway, consisting of two running lanes and an emergency lane, as well as junction improvements associated with the R4 ring road in south Gent and its connectivity to the E17 and E40 motorways. New developments include underpasses for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists and four canal bridges, which will help improve accessibility and assist with the future development of land in the southern parts of the city.

Solution

We undertook due diligence to help the project reach financial close. We completed construction monitoring and are carrying out maintenance monitoring and providing regular progress reports to the lenders. Our team's multidisciplinary expertise and experience is helping ensure that the project stays on schedule and budget.

Experience

This project builds on our infrastructure experience in Benelux as lenders’ technical advisor on key projects such as the A12, A15, A9 and N33 motorways, the Second Coentunnel in the Netherlands, Brabo 1 tram line, the Liefkenshoek rail tunnel and the Kempen North-South link.
