SEAWARD EBB GATES OF THE ‘VISSERIJDOKSLUIS’ IN OSTEND TO BE REPLACED

The existing ebb gates of the lower head (these are the seaward ebb gates) of the Visserijdoksluis (Fishing Dock Lock) in Ostend are very outdated. In 2016, the Coastal Division replaced these lock gates with new mitre gates. The new ebb gates measure 11.5 metres in height and 9.5 metres in width.
