    Although no major Tour de France events take place on Friday, both drivers and commuters in Brussels can expect circulation disturbances as the Grand Départ preparations continue.

    The preparations are set to shut down the exit of Avenue du Parc Royal into the A12 motorway all day.

    Brussels residents opting for public transport can expect several bus lines to be either shut down or deviated, as Tour staff busy themselves with the setting-up of the starting and finishing podiums.

    Respectively, seven and five lines operated by STIB and De Lijn will be either deviated or shortened.

    Residents are advised to monitor mobility information on the Grand Départ’s information website and to use route planners to navigate the city in order to limit the impact of the disturbances.

    Cycling fans on Friday can attend festivities at the Tour’s Fan Park, which will kick-off at 10:00 AM and last through the afternoon.
