Disruption to metro services over the weekend

Those planning to use public transport in the east of Brussels over the weekend need to take account of possible delays to their journeys as metro line 1 will be out of action between the Merode and Stokkel metro stations. A replacement bus service will be in place and trans 39 (to and from Ban Eik) and 44 (to and from Tervuren will terminate at Merode rather than Montgomery.  

The closure is to allow modernisation work to be carried out. New points will be installed between Montgomery and Merode. This will make it easier to divert metro trains if there is an incident on the network.  

On Saturday and Sunday all metros heading east from the Brussels city centre will follow line 5 to Delta and Herrmann-Debroux.   

MIVB staff will be deployed in the Merode and Montgomery metro station.
