The new tram will travel along the Jetselaan, the Tentoonstellingslaan and the Dikkebeuklaan. The new 3km line should open in the autumn of 2018. It is estimated that it will cost 66.4 million euro.
After 2018 the line will be extended further to the Heizel. This final stretch of track may also be used by the Flemish public transport company De Lijn for their “Randtram”. A final decision on the "Randtram" will be taken before the summer.
