Passing through the Westerscheldetunnel and Sluiskiltunnel?

When you travel from Goes or Middelburg to Ghent or the other way around, you will pass through the Westerscheldetunnel and the Sluiskiltunnel. The Westerscheldetunnel is a 6.6-kilometre-long toll tunnel running underneath the Westerschelde, and the Sluiskiltunnel is a toll-free tunnel running underneath the Ghent-Terneuzen Canal. Both tunnels are on the route of the N62, a motorway with a 100-km/h speed limit.

Safety is our top priority. With their two single-track tunnel tubes (no oncoming traffic), aid stations every 50 metres and cross passages every 250 metres, the Westerscheldetunnel and Sluiskiltunnel rank among Europe’s safest tunnels. Moreover, the tunnels are kept under a round-the-clock surveillance. This means a safe passage for all.


Everyone who wants to use the Westerscheldetunnel, automatically passes the Toll Plaza in Borssele. It has seven different lanes where you can pay. On the Toll Plaza, a 30-km/h speed limit applies.

Signs above the lanes indicate whether it is a checkout lane, t-tag or credit card lane. Lane 7 is designated for lorries. This is a wider lane. Each lane has an intercom and if you have a problem, you will immediately be assisted by one of our toll plaza attendants. They will be happy to help.

On the Toll Plaza the toll for the Westerscheldetunnel can be paid in different ways. Vehicles are charged according to their height and length.
