Two lanes closed on Rue de la Loi this summer

20:34 22/07/2019

A stretch of Brussels' Rue de la Loi has been reduced from four lanes to two until the end of August to allow for roadworks.

Cars emerging from the Cinquantenaire tunnel at Schuman will find only the two left-hand lanes of the busy street are accessible.

Works are being carried out on the bridge crossing the Chaussée d'Etterbeek, by Maelbeek station, to redo the joints, add waterproofing and improve the pavement.

The first half of the bridge was repaired in summer 2017 - and phase two of the works could not be done last summer because of commemorative events marking the centenary of the end of the first world war.

Elsewhere in Brussels, the Leopold II tunnel remains completely closed in both directions all summer long. One of the two Rogier tunnels is closed, meaning the other tunnel currently has two-way traffic.
