Construction of new tram tracks – One-way traffic along the entire loop of Dikke Beuklaan – Laarbeeklaan as of 8/2/16 (UPDATE)
As of Monday 8 February 2016, the construction site will extend along the entire loop of Dikke Beuklaan – Laarbeeklaan where traffic will become one way. This means that the hospital and car parks can only be reached from exit 9 Jette on the Brussels Ring road or from the intersection of Tentoonstellingslaan – Romeinse steenweg. Public transport will continue to serve the campus, albeit with some changes.
As from May 2015, public works will be initiated near Dikke Beuklaan - Avenue de l’Arbre Ballon - to construct a new tram line between Simonis and the Romeinse Steenweg - Chaussée Romaine. The hospital remains accessible for all traffic and public transport throughout the works (2015 – 2017), although one must take into account some inconveniences.
The new ‘Tram 9’ will have a stop at the UZ Brussel (Brussels University Hospital) with intersections made safer and better facilities for cyclists and pedestrians.
- As of Monday 8 February, the traffic flow will switch to one-way traffic along Dikke Beuklaan and Laarbeeklaan.
- Traffic coming from exit 9 on the Brussels Ring road (from Asse) can only turn right in the direction of UZ Brussel.
- A large number of parking spaces along the public road (“blue zone”) will disappear. Visitors can still access the car parks (P1, P2 and P3) of UZ Brussel from exit 9 Jette on the Ring road or from the Tentoonstellingslaan – Romeinse steenweg intersection. Follow the signs to get there.
- All traffic must leave the hospital (and the car parks) by turning right upon exiting the hospital. Turn right into Tentoonstellingslaan at the first intersection, i.e. the Laarbeeklaan – Tentoonstellingslaan intersection to get to the Romeinse steenweg - Tentoonstellingslaan intersection (heading towards the entrance ramp for the Ring road).
Public transport will continue to serve the campus but some bus stops will be temporarily moved. The existing timetables may be adapted.
Check the websites of the public transport companies for current information:
- Changes for bus lines 13-14-15-53 and 84
- Changes for bus 820 (Dilbeek/Zaventem via UZ Brussel)
- Changes for bus 245 (Dendermonde/Brussel via UZ Brussel)
