Brussels ring roadworks to cause delays from today

Jun 18, 2017

Drivers on the Brussels ring can expect extra delays for the next six weeks between Tervuren and Sint-Stevens-Woluwe due to resurfacing work.

One of the three lanes in each direction will be closed until the end of July, and a 50kph speed limit is in place, to allow for a new layer of asphalt to be placed over a 5km stretch of road. The Tervuren and Wezembeek-Oppem slip roads are closed until 8 July.

It is one of a number of roadworks taking place this summer on the ring road, as announced earlier this month by Flemish mobility minister Ben Weyts.

Meanwhile, in the centre of town, the Porte de Hal tunnel will reopen on 3 July, with one lane of traffic in each direction instead of two. The reopening is a week later than planned.

I haven't lived in any country with more chaotic and/or long-lasting (years with no definitive completion date) roadworks than in Belgium. And no matter what they do, the roads always seem to be in relatively poor condition compared to neighbouring countries.

I wish they would finish one set of works before beginning on the next!! Bld de la Woluwe seems to be progressing at snails pace and Av. Tervuren is also dug up meaning that many of the routes to avoid that stretch of the ring are also impossible. Anon2 has presumably never lived in "cone world" - i.e. the UK!

One of the causes of the state of the main routes through Belgium is the weight of foreign trucks traversing the country.
What happened to the 'toll' that was to be levied on trucks for using these roads? Surely that revenue was to be used to improve the state of said roads
