Belgium - Parking border crossing E40/A3 Eynatten / Lichtenbusch

03 April 2020

In recent years there has been a sharp increase in the number of exceptional vehicles from Germany crossing the border in Eynatten (mainly wind turbine blades).

Due to the lack of parking, the police had drawn up a tolerance regarding parking on the service road just after exit 39 of the A3 / E40 towards Loncin. This was illegal parking but tolerated by the police on condition that the passage was kept clear for police. Unfortunately, that service road is now regularly overcrowded and there are even transports that are still partly on the exit and therefore cause a lot of risks to road safety.
