A section of the road between Place Stéphanie and Rue Bailli on Avenue Louise in Brussels has been given over to bicycles after work was completed on a new cycle lane over the weekend. The street remains accessible to vehicles, but cyclists are now given priority.

The installation of the new ochre-coloured asphalt lane is part of a project to transform the cycling infrastructure between Place Stéphanie and Avenue Emile de Mot, close to the entrance to Bois de la Cambre.

Three more sections of the route will become bicycle streets with construction work being carried out between the start of September and the end of October.

Cars and motorcycles are allowed to use bicycle streets but may not drive faster than 30km/h. In addition, they are not allowed to overtake cyclists.
