Belgium’s longest road tunnel, the 2.5 kilometre-long Leopold II Tunnel, that runs under the Leopold II-laan in Sint-Jans-Molenbeek and the Elisabeth Park in Koekelberg will be closed to traffic from the evening of Friday 28 June for major renovation work.
In preparation for this a one-way system will be introduced along the avenues that encircle the Elisabeth Park. This is to prevent traffic seeking alternatives routes through residential areas. The one way system will remain in force until Sunday 1 September.
The road that links the Leopold II Tunnel with the E40 motorway will also be subject to disruption during the summer vacation period. The utilities companies Vivaqua, Elia and Sibelga will commerce work to modernise their infrastructure along and under the Kezier Karellaan in Ganshoren and Sint-Agatha-Berchem.
This means that just one lane will be open to traffic heading towards the motorway. In the opposite direction some work will also be carried out leading to the closure of one of the two lanes. However, this work will be done outside of peak times. The work should have been completed before the beginning of September.
