    Public transport will stop circulating in parts of a busy high-street in the Brussels municipality of Ixelles from August and for around two months as road works are carried out, municipal authorities announced Tuesday.

    The section of the Chaussée d’Ixelles between the Chaussée de Wavre and the Porte de Namur will be closed to circulation from August 5 to October 1, the municipality of Ixelles said on Facebook.

    Both the Chaussée d’Ixelles and the Chaussée de Wavre, as well as the Rue de Stassart, will be dead ends during the renovations.

    Public transport buses number 71 and 54 will pull out of the Chaussée d’Ixelles, with the former being deviated through the Rue du Trône and line 54 via Avenue Louise.

    Bus number 70 will run between Place Fernand Cocq and Place Flagey from August until the start of November, according to the Facebook post.

    Traffic will also be deviated through Rue Lesbroussart and Rue Malibran.

    The renovations could disturb deliveries for businesses in the area, as authorities say that large delivery vehicles will need to back out of the Chaussée de Wavre.

    The Chaussée d’Ixelles will be accessible for delivery trucks via Rue Prince Albert or Place Flagey, the municipality said.

    Pedestrians will still be able to circulate during the renovations.
