The Eastern part of the Brussels’ ring road experienced little to no traffic disruption due to the narrowed E40. Cars entering Brussels via the E40 coming from the Eastern side (Leuven), have fewer lanes available starting from Monday. Even though traffic jams were predicted for the morning rush, the changed traffic situation did not cause any extra nuisance according to Brussels Mobility, reported Bruzz.
Anyone that wants to go in the direction of the city centre or Montgomery, only has one lane available, instead of two. On the right side, the road markings will be applied on Monday, or at the latest on Tuesday, according to Bruzz.
The three tunnel openings of the E40 towards Montgomery, city centre and Meiser were reduced after the renovation of the tunnel and now only offer access to one lane. A fourth lane turns towards the Reyers site and the Rue Colonel Bourg, to counteract the bottleneck effect.
Major traffic disruptions were expected, but no more nuisance than a normal Monday morning took place, according to the Brussels Mobility Agency.
