The Van Eycktunnel is a tunnel in the Belgian city of Antwerp, located under the Leien at the National Bank. The Van Eycktunnel starts at the N184 (Maria Henriëttalei) and ends up at the N113 (Britselei) in the direction of Bolivarplaats. Traffic can only pass through the tunnel in this direction. The name is derived from the nearby Van Eycklei. The Van Eycktunnel forms a complex with the Blauwtorentunnel, the Gasthuistunnel and the underground car park 'Nationale Bank'. The tunnels were opened to traffic on January 14, 2008. The maximum height is 2.80 m, which means that trucks are not allowed, and the maximum speed is 30 km/h. The length of this tunnel is 225 m.
