The disruption is expected to start in the morning with the area around Brussels’ European institutions expected to be affected first. Police are also prepared for protest on and along the Inner Ring Road and in the city centre.
On the last two Saturdays there were confrontations between the police and the demonstrators on the Belliardstraat and at the crossroads of the Wetstraat and the Kunstlaan.
The Brussels-Capital-Elsene Local Police Service advises motorists to follow its officers’ instruction closely. “We will do all we can to channel traffic underground. If there are tunnel closures drivers should flower the instructions on the overhead signs”.
Motorists are advised to steer clear of the capital and to use public transport wherever possible. Real time information (in Dutch and French) will be available on the polbru.be website.
