All vehicle traffic, including public transport buses, has been pulled from a street in the south of Brussels after a road collapsed on Tuesday morning.
A hole of around one metre deep by three meters long appeared after parts of the Chaussée d’Alsemberg, between Uccle’s Avenue de Floreal and Avenue de Messidor at around 10:15 AM, according to Brussels Mobility.
Mobility authorities said the roads between those avenues were closed down to all traffic, with Brussels’ public transport company STIB/MIVB announcing that buses were still not running in the afternoon, in a tweet posted at around 2:00 PM, but that trams ran normally.
Il n'y a pas de tbus (vu qu'il y a un effondrement) Il y a des agents STIB à globe altitude cent et Albert pour guider les voyageurs et de rapprocher des arrêts avec 37 et 43. ^lb
