The challenge

The Brussels Ring (R0) is a major artery for commutes to and from the Belgian capital, as well as for transit traffic. But the Ring was designed for the traffic of the last century, with little attention to soft mobility and public transport and without taking into account existing spatial, functional and ecological relationships. Accidents on the Ring almost always directly lead to large-scale traffic jams throughout the region; therefore, changes are needed to meet today’s needs.

The solution

In 2016, the Flemish authorities already presented their plan for the redevelopment of the Ring, the main goal being to separate transit traffic and local traffic by creating separate lanes. An “annex” infrastructure, such as tram lines and bicycle bridges, will also improve the link between the Brussels periphery and the capital. Arcadis and SWECO have joined forces under the name “MoVeR0.” They will guide the Flemish authorities in this ambitious project, conducting studies on the northern part of the Ring between the Grand-Bigard and Woluwe-Saint-Etienne interchanges.

The impact

Located in the heart of the Belgian and European road network, the R0 is an important economic hub used daily by people commuting to work, totaling more than 100,000 vehicles each year. This redevelopment gives the Ring a new life and prepares Brussels for tomorrow’s traffic.
