Brussels Ring Road will get wildlife bridge


The first phase of work on a new wildlife crossing in Groenendaal, just outside of Brussels is scheduled to be finished in August. So the animals of the Sonian Forest will be able to safely cross the Brussels Ring Road.

The Flemish minister, Ben Weyts, who is responsible for mobility and animal welfare, visited the site of the Ring’s first wildlife bridge at the weekend. The entire project costs about €6 million, writes Het Laatste Nieuws.

“The ecoduct will be 60m wide and 55m long,” said Weyts. With this impressive project, we reunite nearly 5,000 hectares of nature.”

The total cost of the project, about €6 million, is paid for by the Flemish government, European Union, municipalities of Hoeilaart and Overijse, the Nature and Forest Agency, and the Road and Traffic Agency.
