Car-sharing lane to be tested on E411 into Brussels

Sep 4, 2017

A new car-sharing lane will be tested out on the E411 motorway into Brussels, reserved for vehicles with at least three people on board.

The pilot scheme will allow car-pool drivers to avoid traffic by using the existing bus and taxi lane instead. A similar test zone will be set up in the other direction near the Luxembourg border, where car-sharers will be allowed to drive on the hard shoulder.

The measure on the approach to Brussels is due to begin in mid-2018 and could be extended to other busy stretches of motorway if successful. Cars carrying fewer than three people risk a fine.

Wallonia transport minister Carlo di Antonio said: "No roadworks are needed - it just needs the approval of the Brussels and Flemish regions."

The car-sharing lane heading into Luxembourg should come into force in 2019, as some resurfacing work is needed on the emergency lane.

Of course this will just mean that all drivers will start to use the bus lane unless cameras are installed all along the stretch. Some drivers even use it now when traffic is blocked. Ignoring traffic rules seems to be a national sport in any case.
