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 six years of construction. It is 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 14 locks , which had hitherto been needed for the canal to follow the local topography.
