The Galgenweel is part of the Low Emission Zone introduced since February 1, 2017 in the city of Antwerp.
What does this mean for the visitors to the Galgenweel :
- for the Belgian registered number plates, nothing has to be done unless the vehicle has an approved motor (see below). If not a day or week pass is to be bought through this site.
- for the foreign registered number plates, each visitor has to register his number plate on the website. If the motor is compliant, then nothing has to happen (this can be checked via website). If not, a day or week pass is to be bought through this link.
Summarised you find below the current regulation (more info on the website) :
Important message : if you are forced to buy a permit for the weekend, then the Belgian OK dinghy Association will refund you for one day of the permit. This will be settled at the moment of registration and if accompanied with the supporting evidence of purchase of a day pass.
