Complete Closure of Brussels Ring (R0) for Road Works: Delays and Alternate Routes

2023-08-11 05:10:30

The Brussels ring (R0) will be completely closed to traffic throughout this weekend in the direction of the capital between the interchange towards Genappe, at Braine-l’Alleud, and that of Groenendael. The road renewal work, which was very degraded, should have started last Friday, but was postponed by a week due to weather conditions. They will finally start this Friday at 10 p.m.

Obviously, not all commuters are aware yet: “It’s going to be very annoying because I’m going to Brussels to work”, worries a motorist.

This project is part of a larger operation to rehabilitate and secure this road axis, from Braine-l’Alleud to the Flemish Region. Initially planned over two weekends, these works finally require three weekends of total closure of traffic in the direction of the capital, the first of which is scheduled for this weekend.

From this Friday August 11 at 2 p.m., the R0 will be completely closed between the “Genappe” and “Groenendael” interchanges until Monday 4 a.m. to allow the laying of a new coating. Work will be carried out 24 hours a day.

To reach Brussels, a diversion will be set up from the Haut-Ittre interchange and all the axes converging there (E19, E411, N25, N28, N280, etc.). Users will have to take the West Ring towards Wauthier-Braine. Those who nevertheless go to the East Ring to reach a local destination will be obliged to leave the Ring at exit n°26 “Genappe”.

These works do not delight all the inhabitants of Waterloo: “It is true that here there is already a lot of traffic, so I imagine that it will be even more annoying than usual for those who drive in a car“, fears a resident.

The dates and terms of the other two closing weekends will be confirmed later, specifies Sofico.

The total cost of the rehabilitation and security works is estimated at 3 million euros. Some 36,000 vehicles circulate each day in normal times on the portion of the ring concerned.
