After the first phase of the study on R0 East, the part of the ring around Wezembeek, Overijse and Groenendaal, the government approved a package of measures last week to achieve the sustainable modal shift in the region. The package consists of a number of specific, short-term design interventions in which the slow network is key. In addition, public transport, ecology, road safety and quality of life in the surrounding residential areas also determine the first implementation projects. In the next phases, the large traffic complexes namely the Leonard intersection, the Vierarmen intersection, the Groenendaal intersection and the new entry and exit complex at Brabandtlaan will also be further developed.
The study was commissioned by the Flemish government for which De Werkvennootschap (Flemish organisation for the integrated and accelerated implementation of complex infrastructure projects) is working closely together with THV Zoniën Mobiel. Four design and engineering firms have joined forces in THV Zoniën Mobiel: OMGEVING is responsible for the development of the vision, the infrastructure design and the integration of the landscape, SBE takes care of the civil engineering part, Ney & Partners offers expertise for the structures and the architecture and D+A Consult takes care of the project management and the technical elaboration. The team is further strengthened by MINT’s traffic expertise and Hesselteer’s ecological advice.
