Brussels Underground

Geschreven door  op in The Mobile Life.

Mobility in Brussels is a joke. The Belgian capital has grown over the years, combining nineteen towns into the massive Brussels. No matter when you visit, chances are you will be stuck in traffic.

Rail infrastructure operator Infrabel wants to make sure that Public Transportation is a more than viable alternative, and started construction of a new railroad tunnel in 2008. This makes sure that people traveling from the heart of the European Quarter can get a direct connection to Brussels Airport. During construction they dug out the equivalent of over 100 Olympic-sized swimming pools! Another cool bit is that the entire structure of the rails will be separated from the tunnel infrastructure. They will use shock-absorbing rubber mats to minimise any nuisances for the neighbours.

The tunnel opening is planned in December 2015, but we already had the chance to visit the construction site. Enjoy these special images!
