The Ronquières Inclined Plane is a Belgian canal inclined plane on the Brussels-Charleroi Canal in the province of Hainaut in Wallonia that opened in April 1968 after a six year construction period. It is located in the municipality of Braine-le-Comte, and takes its name from the nearby village of Ronquières.
The purpose of the construction was to reduce the delays imposed by the fourteen locks (already reduced from sixteen in the nineteenth century) which had hitherto been needed for the canal to follow the local topography. Source Wikipedia.
