The Stéphanie tunnel in Brussels has been reopened to traffic after flooding caused it to close.
The tunnel was closed at around 5:00 PM, following heavy rains that caused the flooding of the Stéphanie tunnel. Traffic was therefore temporarily closed towards the centre.
It was reopened at 6:25 PM.

Firefighters were called to the scene to solve the problem. This closure caused significant disruption to traffic as it coincided with the rush hour of Brussels motorists.
