The road name then changes to the Rijselseweg, (N365). On reaching the village of Mesen the first right hand turning leads onto Nieuwkerkestraat, towards Wulvergem. On reaching the village of Wulvergem the first right hand turning at the church leads onto Vrooilandstraat. 500 metres along this road lies the junction with Wulvergemstraat.
