20 million euros will be spent on renovating the pedestrian pathways in Brussels. The project will take three years. Beliris, the organisation for cooperation between Brussels and the Federation, has agreed to the idea, Le Soir said on Tuesday. Three metro stations will be completely renovated. La Place de Brouckère, at the heart of the pathway, will be redesigned and given a ground-level fountain and monumental artwork. The Boulevard Anspach will be decorated with “pocket gardens”, and given two slow traffic alleys. There will be a water feature built near the Stock Market, and the square will be redesigned. The pathway will also get sombre and contemporary furnishings. The dustbins will have a Wi-Fi system, which will signal when they are full.
