Cycling to air cargo in Brussels
The Flemish roads and traffic agency will build a new bicycle bridge over the Haachtsesteenweg in Steenokkerzeel from today, 15 September 2021.
Lydia Peeters, minister of mobility and public works: "The bicycle bridge that is part of the F214 bicycle highway will provide a better connection between the centre of Vilvoorde and Brucargo. With this joint investment of EUR 1.8 million we want to give (e-)bike commuting an extra boost."
The bridge will be built in collaboration with the airport, which is making land available for the bridge, and with financial support from the EU.
The airport operator's CEO Arnaud Feist: "Brussels Airport wants to be a true intermodal hub, where the different modes of transport intersect. This way, anyone who works in the cargo zone can easily come to work by bike." (ah)
