Liefkenshoek Tunnel

The Liefkenshoek Tunnel (1.3 km) is a tunnel crossing the port of Antwerp, built between 1987 and 1991. The tunnel was a vital missing link for the mobility in and around Antwerp. Budgetary restraints, however, did not allow for the bridge to be built with public funds. So the government chose for a private financing model in the form of the design-build-finance-maintain-operate (DBFMO)-approach. A private building consortium (NV Tunnel Liefkenshoek) accepted to build, finance, maintain and operate the tunnel in exchange for toll revenues. The tunnel was finished in four years. Operations and toll collecting could be started in 1991. From then off the NV Tunnel Liefkenshoek became concessionaire and operator of the tunnel.
