At the height of this morning’s rush hour there were at total of 600 km of jams on Belgium’s highway network. The jams had come about largely due to traffic slowing down due to the snow in Wallonia and an accident in Antwerp.
The melted snow is expected to remain on the ground for some time. Meanwhile, fresh snowfall has been reported in parts of Flemish Brabant and Brussels.
According to our traffic expert Hajo Beeckman it is important that drivers keep their distance as breaking distances are greater in these kinds of weather conditions.
Some distruption to public transport
The Flemish public transport company De Lijn reports delays to services in Flemish Brabant and the South of Limburg province. Elsewhere, a number of bus services have been cancelled due to flooding in Boom Antwerp Province.
The Belgian rail company NMBS reports no major problems. However, in Wallonia there are a few isolated issues with frozen points.
