Strategic decision for the transformation of Ghent Dampoort

OMGEVING, together with partners B-architecten and Arcadis, is working on an updated urban plan for the station area of Ghent Dampoort, one of the most complex mobility nodes in Flanders. The plan builds on the results of the exploratory survey conducted by OMGEVING and MINT in 2013. An important step in the design process is the choice to build a tunnel under the R40 city ring near the station. This way, the space above ground can be optimized as a high-quality node for sustainable transport and a healthy living area. The plan is drawn up in commission of the city of Ghent and in close collaboration with the authorizing Flemish administrations.
