The Brussels ring-road hit by traffic jams after a 13 vehicle pile-up
Monday, 17 November 2014
A pile-up between 13 vehicles occurred on the Brussels ring-road near Zaventern at around 6.15am on Monday. This has caused long traffic queues, say the local fire department and the Flemish traffic Center (Vlaams Verkeerscentrum). One person was slightly injured. Three lanes are affected. “Driving from Louvain, Waterloo and the South of Brussels is only possible on two lanes”, said the Center. A queue has formed at Boutersem, causing delays of between half an hour and two hours. Another traffic jam has formed on the ring-road, with delays of around an hour on the Léonard roundabout.
The traffic police went to the scene to get information. The traffic problems could last all morning. The Center advises motorists driving from Liège to the capital to go through Namur.
