Region

Kraainem Sint-Lambrechts-Woluwe Zaventem

Project status

In progress

Construction sites closed to combat the Coronavirus 

The comprehensive measures set out by the National Security Council for fighting the Coronavirus will also have an impact on the roadworks on the Sint-Annalaan. Together with the contractor, we have decided to temporarily halt the roadworks. The previously announced diversions will not be implemented as a result. This measure is to protect employees and to combat further spreading of the virus. The contractor will obviously ensure that the construction site is cleaned up and restore accessibility for surrounding residents.

We thank you for your understanding, and we will update you as soon as a new start date is known!

What do we do?

Along the eastern side of the R22 we are installing the F202, connecting Zaventem with the Kraainem area.

  • The bicycle highway links up with the F203 towards the Brussels Capital Region and the HST bicycle route.
  • Cyclists can use a bicycle tunnel to cross the Chaussée de Louvain quickly and safely.
  • The presence and course of the stream help to determine the profile.

Phasing of the construction

  • Phase 2

    From 5 August 2019 to April 2020: working on three fronts

    We will be moving construction works up a gear.

    • In this phase of construction we will build the cycle tunnel under the N2 and the approach ramp south of the tunnel. Thanks to a bypass north of the Leuvensesteenweg, the N2 will remain open on the R22. Traffic movements will be limited to entering right and exiting right.
    • In conjunction with the refurbishment of the cycle tunnel, we will be refurbishing  the western half of the carriageway on the R22 . Between the N2 and the bridge at the E40 exit (Exit 20 ‘Kraainem’ from Brussels) we will be working on both the drainage works and the carriageway.
    • We will be completely replacing the junction at Tramlaan and the R22, together with the Tramlaan itself (up to Kleine Bergstraat). From Tuesday 6 August 2019, Tramlaan will be completely disrupted until the end of phase 2.

    Underwater construction in the cycle tunnel

    • The construction of the cycle tunnel is on schedule. We placed the dam walls and poured the underwater concrete on 17 and 27 December. From January 2020 we will be building concrete walls in the tunnel and build the N2 Leuvensesteenweg above the tunnel.

    R22 drainage and Tramlaan

    • Towards the end of this year the laying of new drainage system for rainwater in the R22 Woluwedal will be completed (part of the current work zone). We have already laid the rainwater drainage system underneath Tramlaan. In January 2020 Tramlaan will get another drainage system for household wastewater. We will subsequently complete the home connections for both rainwater and wastewater. In the course of February 2020, the construction of the new infrastructure at both the Tramlaan, as well as at the current works zone for the R22, will begin.
  • Phase 3

    From mid-April to November 2020

    • In this phase we will be re-laying the western connection (Brussels side) of the N2 with the R22 Woluwedal, together with the last part of the R22 itself, north of the N2. 
    • In addition, we are modifying the Statieplaats connection (Oudstrijderslaan) to facilitate the cycle highway, as well as building the northern ramp to the cycle tunnel.
  • Construction of the F202 cycle highway

    August 2019 to December 2020

    In conjunction with phase 2 and 3 we will be working on large parts of the construction of the cycle highway from August 2019 to December 2020. In general, the works will have no impact on traffic, with the exception of the service road along the R22 (which provides access to PWC and other locations). Along with the cycle highway we are also planting extra greenery and placing a retaining wall along the E40 exit, which will extend up to the recycling centre.

Volgende werfzone werken Woluwedal start op maandag 11 mei  

  • Tot het bouwverlof vernieuwen we de langsweg van de R22 (aan PWC en Woluwe Garden) en leggen er het laatste stuk van de fietssnelweg F202 aan.
  • Om deze werken mogelijk te maken, wijzigt de verkeerssituatie op de R22 Woluwedal tussen de Hippokrateslaan en het keerpunt (kant viaduct afrit ‘Kraainem'). In de richting van Brussel zal verkeer over ongeveer 100 meter slechts over de rechterrijstrook kunnen rijden. Dit om het verkeer uit de andere richting hier door te middenberm te kunnen leiden. We nemen namelijk lokaal de hele rijweghelft (beide rijstroken) van de R22 richting Zaventem in om een ondergrondse rioleringsaansluiting te realiseren.
  • Verkeer vanuit Brussel voegt iets voorbij het kruispunt met de Hippokrateslaan samen op één rijstrook waarna het tweemaal door de middenberm moet rijden.
  • Ter hoogte van de werfzone (langsweg PWC - Woluwe Garden) blijft verkeer op de één rijstrook behouden. De rechterrijstrook kunnen we daardoor gebruiken als tijdelijke ventweg om de ontsluiting van de bedrijven te garanderen. Onderstaand routeschema geeft deze verkeersafwikkeling weer.

Laatste werffase start vanaf begin juni

Tijdens de laatste fase van de werken (Fase 3) is de Leuvensesteenweg richting Brussel afgesloten van de R22. Ook de Leuvensesteenweg indraaien is niet mogelijk. Er geldt een omleiding via de Tramlaan en Bevrijdingslaan.

  • Handelszaken vlakbij de werfzone blijven bereikbaar via de omleiding.  
  • Klanten kunnen parkeren in de Voordestraat die vanaf Woluwedal bereikbaar is voor aangelanden en plaatselijk verkeer.  
  • Op de Leuvensesteenweg kan je parkeren tot aan het kruispunt met de Voordestraat. Dit kruispunt blijft trouwens open voor lokaal verkeer.
