Project status

In progress

The HST bicycle route follows the HST railway track between Leuven and Brussels. We will complete this bicycle highway and are tackling the following points:

  • We are installing the missing link between the Fabrieksstraat in Zaventem and the Lodewijk Vankeerberghenstraat in Machelen.
  • A new bicycle bridge across the Ring around Brussels allows cyclists and pedestrians to cross over safely.  
  • We are providing the connection to the Keiberg-Kouterveld business park.

 

With the support of

This project is being carried out with support from the province of Flemish Brabant.

Phasing

  • Not all information is available in Dutch.
     

    We werken op verschillende plaatsen tegelijk. Nog tot begin juli bereiden we de projectzone voor door  bijvoorbeeld hekwerk te plaatsen, verhardingen op te breken en minderhindersteenslag aan te brengen. Deze werken gebeuren zonder hinder voor het verkeer of de omgeving. Daarna gaan we in zowat alle zones aan de slag. Voetgangers en fietsers kunnen de werfzones tijdens de werken steeds passeren.

Impact on traffic on the Brussels Ring (R0)

  • From the beginning of August to mid-September, we build the bridge pillars upon which the bicycle highway over the R0 will be build later. The three lanes on the Ring are preserved in both directions, but are narrowed. A speed limit of 70 km / hour will apply along the construction site.

    There will be some hurdles in the spring of 2021. During a few weekends we foresee a partial closure of the Ring when we place the bridge sections on the pillars. However, traffic will always be able to pass in both directions via the surrounding infrastructure of the Ring. This will be over a reduced number of lanes and of course at a reduced speed.

Not all information is available in Dutch.

 

Toegang voetgangerstunnel van station Diegem (kant Bosstraat) afgesloten in augustus  

Ter hoogte van de parking aan de Bosstraat/Lodewijk Vankeerberghenstraat schuiven we de toegang naar de voetgangerstunnel op om er de fietssnelweg overheen aan te leggen. Daardoor is de trap van de voetgangerstunnel in augustus niet toegankelijk. De tunnel naar de perrons blijft wel toegankelijk vanaf de Stationsstraat.

Extension of railway tunnels

We are extending the railway tunnels on the Fabrieksstraat and Lambroekstraat In this way, the bicycle highway can be built along the road, at the same height as the track.

The tunnel on the Fabrieksstraat will be completely closed to car traffic during the works. For the railway underpass at Maalbeekweg - Lambroekstraat, we set up alternating traffic via a priority scheme.

Good to know: due to unforeseen circumstances it is always possible that the schedule changes.

Local or limited nuisance
  • From the end of July, excavation works will take place on the side of the De Kleetlaan railway.
  • The bicycle highway will run through the Glazed Box and on the Jan Emiel Mommaertslaan. During works above the carriageway, alternating traffic on the J. E. Mommaertslaan applies. This in the period from mid-July to January next year.
  • When the railway tunnel on the Fabrieksstraat is closed to car traffic (late June to mid December), you can detour via surrounding roads.
