Take the 2nd exit at the small roundabout (with the artificial wind mill) (Anderlechtlaan). Beware of the speed bumps! At the traffic light, turn right (Laan van Vlaanderen). The road takes a turn to the left; follow the road. At the first large intersection, go right (follow the Gamma sign on the lamp post) (Antwerpenbaan, Louwesweg). At the traffic lights go straight past the road works (Aletta Jacobslaan, Vlaardingenlaan) for about 1 km.
