Reyers-Montgomery tunnel closure postponed
Repair works on the Reyers-Montgomery tunnel, which were due to begin today, have been postponed because of over-running works in another nearby tunnel.
Authorities have decided not to go ahead with the planned 30 March closure - preferring instead to wait until the Reyers-Meiser tunnel is completed. It is being demolished and rebuilt.
Work on the Meiser tunnel began in January and was due to be finished at the end of April. It will now be delayed a fortnight until 15 May.
Reyers-Montgomery will therefore remain open until at least mid-May. Brussels Mobility said it would publish revised closure dates after the Easter holidays.
Major roadworks are being carried out all this year on four of the six Reyers tunnels in Schaerbeek. The only stretch that is unaffected is the main Reyers-Schuman tunnel.
Drivers coming into Brussels on the E40 from Liège are being encouraged to follow the recommended diversions, via the Brussels ring and other main routes into the city.
