In order to further reinforce the bicycle as a means of transport for commuter traffic in its own right, we are eliminating the 'missing links' in the cycle network. We are making sure that there is quality cycling infrastructure, with a view to encouraging people to use bicycles as often as possible.
We are investing in bicycle highways that connect the Flemish periphery safely and smoothly with Brussels, but we are also improving other bicycle facilities that benefit local and recreational cyclists. Among other things, new bicycle lanes along the 'Ringtrambus' route and new or improved bicycle connections along, under and over the Ring will be introduced.
In total, we are responsible for 40 km of new bicycle connections. With wide bicycle lanes, bends with plenty of space, adapted lighting and an obstacle-free route, cycling is becoming a safe and quick alternative to the car. The integration of the bicycle highways into the surrounding area makes every route a unique cycling experience.
