De Lijn hopes to reopen North Station bus stops from Friday evening

With Brussels North Railway Station having been cleared of the transit migrants and others that had been sleeping rough there, the Flemish public transport company De Lijn has announced that it hopes that its services will stop at the bus stops outside Brussels North Station as soon as possible. De Lijn says that it is waiting for the area around its bus stops to be cleaned and for the go-ahead from the police.  

Meanwhile, the Brussels public transport company MIVB has said that the two of its bus routes (20 and 61) that serve the station will stop there again from Saturday morning.

Sonja Loos of De Lijn Flemish Brabant told journalists that “We are pleased that a solution has been found for the situation at Brussels North Station. We are now waiting for the clean-up. This should have been completed by the end of today.

As soon as we’re sure that the stop is clean tidy and safe and we receive a signal from the police we will be start serving the stops at the North Station again. This will probably be during the course of the weekend”.
