The Westerschelde Tunnel is accessible 24 hours per day, seven days per week. It takes a mere five minutes to reach the other side of the Westerschelde via the tunnel. A comfortable connection between Dutch Flanders (Zeeuws-Vlaanderen) and South Beveland (Zuid-Beveland). Safe, fast and comfortable!
Unfortunately there are unexpected obstructions as well caused by breakdowns, technical failures or collisions. To ensure the safety of tunnel users, emergency services and the tunnel’s own employees, the tunnel tube will then be temporarily closed off.
