Brussels Ring Road studies to receive EU support
The European Union will co-finance with €1 million from the TEN-T Programme a study to optimise the Brussels Ring Road and improve its traffic flow and safety.
The study, which was selected for funding under the 2012 TEN-T Annual Programme, will analyse solutions to improve the traffic flow as well as the road safety of the Brussels Ring Road. The main aim is to try and separate local and transit traffic, without extending the existing road infrastructure.
More specifically, the EU co-funded study includes an Environmental Impact Assessment and the pre-design for the Brussels Ring Roads East and West, as well as an examination of the possibility to set up a public-private partnership (PPP) for the future works.
The study will be monitored by the Trans-European Transport Network Executive Agency (TEN-T EA) and is set to be completed by December 2015.
