Diversions and disruption to some bus and tram services in Brussels this summer

The Brussels public transport company MIVB and the Brussels water company Vivaqua are carrying out infrastructure work during the summer that will impact tram and Bus services in the capital between now and September. Work on the tram lines at and around the De Wand tram stop in Laken have been ongoing since last month with tram 7 that runs between the Churchill tram stop in Ukkel to the Heizel being replaced by a bus between Araucaria and Heizel.

Work is also due to start on the Lesbroussartstraat in Elsene, where MIVB is to renew the tram track. Elsewhere work by the water company Vivaqua on the Brugmanlaan in Ukkel will impact tram services there.  Work in the Lesbroussartstraat will get underway next weekend. As well as renewing the tram track, the footpaths will be re-laid and trees planted along the busy street.

This will impact tram 81. From Saturday 30 June until Friday 31 August tram 81 will be split in two. The eastern section of the line will run from the Montgommery (above ground) tram stop in Sint-Pieters-Woluwe to the Baljuw tram stop in Elsene. The western section will run from Baljuw to the Marius Renard tram stop in Anderlecht. The tram  will be diverted from Flagey via the Buyl tram stop and the Louizalaan and won’t serve the Dautzenberg trams stop on the Lesbroussartstraat.  

The work will also impact bus 54 that will be diverted between Ferdnad Cocq and Baljuw in the direction of Vorst-Centrum. No diversion will be in place for Troon-bound busses. The diversion will be in force until 31 August.  

Trams 4 and 92 diverted

Work by the water company Vivaqua on the Brugmannlaan will impact trams 4 and 92 between 2 July and 31 August.  Passenger on Tram 4 will have to use a replacement bus service between Globe and Marlow.

On tram route 92 a replacement bus service will be in place between Vanderkindere and Marlow.
