Following the discovery of a weakness in its concrete structure, Brussels mobility decided to close part of the viaduct on Saturday morning. The busy access route into the city will remain closed to traffic until Wednesday, awaiting a more detailed study of its safety. The damage concerns a 10-metre stretch between the Beaulieu metro station and the Chaussée de Wavre.

Motorists are advised to avoid the Delta area and use the Ring and Avenue de Tervuren. Diversions are in place for local traffic.

The Auderghem viaduct is one of the major entry points to Brussels, linking the E411 motorway with the capital. Its closure followed a first crisis meeting between Brussels mobility, the commune of Auderghem and local police on Saturday morning. Further meetings are expected during the day, aimed at improving diversion signals in the area, said a Brussels mobility spokesman.

Herrmann-Debroux Viaduct was built in 1973. It dates from the same period as the Reyers Viaduct, which was demolished in 2015-2016 rather than undergo expensive and lengthy repair work.
