Port of Antwerp

Closing the canal locks

Due to the many access roads (Mexico bridge, London bridge, Zandvliet and Berendrecht locks) which have been closed, P.O.A. had to think through their access control systems. The barrier arms had to be long enough so they installed MCS61-barriers. Underneath the barrier arm , Bam Bormet attached a skirt to prevent people going underneath. The cabinets have a marine coating as extra protection against the salty and wet environment.
