Plans for new De Lijn bus terminal in Brussels put on holdThursday, 21 March 2019 17:26
De Lijn had wanted to move its terminal to the Gare du Nord for some time now. The existing location is dark, with little social control and travellers do not feel safe there.
Brussels Mobility Minister Pascal Smet first announced in late January that the permit for the proposed new terminal would be issued in February. However, the plans have since been put on hold, Brussels Premier Rudi Vervoort (Parti Socialiste) said in Parliament in response to a question from Nieuw-Vlaamse Alliantie (N-VA) legislator Cieltje Van Achter.
A working meeting with the various parties was held in late February. “We came to the conclusion that the project requires a considerable investment, whereas it is quite possible for the building to be largely modified in under two years at the initiative of the new owner(s),” Vervoort explained.
The CCN building is up for sale and its future is uncertain. In the meantime, De Lijn has decided to limit itself to a few light modifications to improve customers’ comfort, the utility told Bruzz.
