As part of this work site, Infrabel is building two new rail tracks on the west side of the existing tracks (i.e. the Place Favresse side).
Three bridges are also being adapted:
The bridge at Chaussée de La Hulpe
The new bridge will be built next to the existing bridge, so as to keep traffic disruption to a minimum during the works.
The bridge at Avenue de la Reine
The new bridge will be slightly wider than the current one, which will allow for the pavements to be widened and improved visibility for those using it.
The Bakenbos underpass
The existing pass will be replaced by a wider and higher tunnel (accessible to horse riders).
Other elements will also be adapted as part of these works:
The bund at Clos Queue du Pigeon
In addition to anti-noise walls and bunds planned along the line, a bund (mound of earth with vegetation) is planned perpendicular to the tracks on the southern edge of the Bakenbos fields. This will lead to the first houses in the Clos Queue du Pigeon being more effectively protected.
New access route (Clos Queue du Pigeon)
A new pedestrian walkway will be used to connect Clos Queue du Pigeon to the Bakenbos underpass.
Finally, Infrabel is installing green and/or anti-noise walls on both sides of the tracks, in order to reduce any noise pollution caused by the increase in rail traffic.
