New 100kph speed limit on Brussels ring from 1 September
New 100kph signs have gone up on the Brussels ring, as a reduced speed limit comes into force on 1 September.
The speed restriction applies to the portions of the ring road in the Brussels region and Flanders, in order to increase safety, improve air quality and help reduce noise pollution.
However, the move has not been endorsed by Wallonia, which manages 18km out of the 75km of the ring road, where the speed limit will remain at the current 120kph.
Areas where lower speed limits of 70 and 90kph already apply on the Flemish and Brussels parts of the ring road will remain unchanged. These include the Vilvoorde viaduct, the stretch through Hoeilaart and Overijse and the west side of the ring through Sint-Pieters-Leeuw, Anderlecht and Forest.
