Chaussée d'Alsemberg partially closed until next summer
Part of the Chaussée d'Alsemberg in Uccle will become a one-way street from this week until next summer, due to water repair works.
Vivaqua is renovating the sewers on the busy street and had tried, in vain, to access the sewers via underground car parks, without disrupting traffic.
Instead, a stretch of road from Rue de Neieuwenhove and Rue Xavier de Bue will have to be closed in the uphill direction - heading into the city centre.
Vehicles are diverted via Avenue Brugmann, Héros and the Parvis Saint-Pierre.
The closure will apply until the end of October, except in July and August. Once completed, the section between Xavier de Bue and Rue Joseph Bens will be closed until Christmas.
The one-way system will then change direction in the new year, until the works are due to be completed in summer 2020.
To support local businesses during the roadworks, the municipality of Uccle has extended the 15 minutes of free parking in the area to a full hour.
Tram 51 will continue to run in both directions during the roadworks.
