Flanders is situated right in the middle of the beating heart of Western Europe. It is a crossroads of people, trade and culture that is home to a dense network of roads, waterways and railways, fine-meshed public transport and world-renowned ports. Brussels, cradle of the European institutions, is also the capital of Belgium and of Flanders itself. London, Amsterdam, the Ruhr Area and Paris are all situated within a mere 350 km. To assume its role as the gateway to Europe, Flanders has a broad range of cast-iron strong suits: hypermodern seaports, cutting-edge logistics and fast links by road, rail and inland waterway, plus one national and three regional airports. Infrastructure and mobility are in the reliable hands of the experts at Mobility and Public Works. This Policy Area of the Government of Flanders has well over 3,000 expert and dynamic members of staff who prepare the ground for new policies, administer and oversee the major investment projects and deliver cutting-edge technical support.
