Many Brussels roads closed this Sunday for BXL Tour

13:52 11/09/2020

Fans of cycling will be excited by the return of the Bxl Tour, a race through the streets of the capital, on Sunday 13 September - but people taking to the roads in motorised vehicles may be less so.

The fourth edition of the cycling event will cause disruptions throughout Brussels with several roads and areas being temporarily closed to traffic between 7.00 and 14.00. The use of cars during this time in the affected areas is strongly discouraged.

The 40km race will see 2,500 cyclists set off from the Place des Palais, with a finish at the Atomium, passing the Cinquantenaire, Tram Museum and Bois de la Cambre.

The tunnels of the inner ring will remain accessible, but some roads will be closed, including a section of Boulevard du Centenaire, Place des Palais, Rue Ducale, Rue Belliard and its tunnel, Avenue de Tervuren, Boulevard du Souverain, Boulevard Général Jacques, Boulevard Auguste Reyers, and Boulevard du Lambermont.

The full list is available on the BXL Tour website.
