Public transport and the railways system will have to absorb most of the growing demand for national and international mobility. As a result, a number of modifications are necessary to the rail infrastructure in and around the Brussels Region.


In 2010 the current North-South link will be completely saturated. The explosion in international rail traffic and the expansion of the regional express network (RER) necessitate the expansion of the Eastern and Western Circular Railway. Many trains will traverse Brussels on the Eastern and Western Circular Railway, which means they will not call at any existing Brussels stations. A large new train terminal will be constructed to the north of the Brussels quadrangle and to the south of the L25-L36 fork, to absorb these trains.

Two possible sites are being examined by Eurostation: Schaerbeek Formation and Schaerbeek Voyageurs.

This terminal will have to be developed as a bipolar project, linked to Zaventem Airport, equipped with check-in facilities and reception infrastructure and must meet the same requirements indispensable for a modern airport terminal in terms of efficiency, comfort and service.

This will secure Zaventem Airport a place in the heart of the European rail network. This terminal must also be developed as an interchange for public transport, chiefly high-speed trains, national trains, RER trains, trams and busses.

A terminal can be built at both Schaerbeek Formation and Schaerbeek Voyageurs. The preference of the Brussels Region lies with Schaerbeek Voyageurs. This project is tied in with the expansion of a new European district, along the canal between Brussels North and Schaerbeek Voyageurs.

Awesome Pics Grumpy.

Like to see my working area from that angle. I am just wondering how you did manage to get up there...

Have you also noticed the core of "Tour des Finances" is being dismantled. It is now clearly visible from ground level.

Thanks again for these shots.

Windows are being installed from the top down. That's unusual.

That's because they are dismantling the core.

On the Square de Gauchetière between Ellipse & TBR where the Aéroballoon from Belgacom used to be, at the end of the Avenue Albert II

There is however no news from the Héliport project situated after WTC 3
