The three unions representing drivers for the Flemish public transport authority De Lijn have agreed to tell their members to stop using the underground bus terminal at Brussels North station, pleading health dangers. De Lijn moved out of the terminal – located in a tunnel under the CCN tower which houses the station – once last November. For a week, drivers terminated on Place Rogier, and spent their break time parked in the middle of the road on the square and adjoining Rue du Progres. Police complained and the buses returned to the terminal following promises from the Brussels region, which owns the CCN building, that something would be done about the situation.
Update: On Sunday, Schaerbeek mayor Bernard Clerfayt said he would be asking for an investigation on Monday of claims that scabies is present in the terminal, which lies partly in Schaerbeek. Also on Sunday, a TV crew from RTL-TVi was attacked by a group of trans-migrants who were bing filmed. Police intervened but no-one was hurt. The crew said they would report the incident after they had completed their reportage.
