The Work on the Ring Road program is fully committed to more and better bicycle infrastructure through safe cycle paths and comfortable bicycle bridges and tunnels. This will allow quick and easy cycling along and across the Ring. The construction of the Welriekendedreef bicycle ramp is part of this ambition.

Welriekendedreef is a tree-lined road on the edge of the Sonian Forest. It forms the border between the Brussels Capital Region and the Flemish Region. The existing pedestrian tunnel under the Ring at the end of this road in Overijse used to be only accessible by stairs. This is absolutely impractical for cyclists and wheelchair users. For that reason, part of the stairs will be rebuilt into a gentle bicycle ramp, which blends into the green surroundings. This will allow cyclists to use the tunnel easily without having to get off their bikes.

During the works, preservation of the existing central tunnel section under the Ring, the proximity of the precious forest area of the Sonian Forest and a gas pipeline all increased the complexity of these works.

On the other side of Welriekendedreef, a bicycle bridge will be built that will create a connection to the center of Jezus-Eik. This bicycle bridge is part of the “redesign of Jezus-Eik village center” project.

SBE performed the stability design, based on the architectural design by Omgeving and Ney & Partners. This includes:

    Redesign R0 East Brussels

    The Ring around Brussels is being given a new lease of life, with full commitment to the mobility of the future and to improving the quality of life for people and animals around the Ring Road. In September 2019, De Werkvennootschap published a vision statement ‘Program Work on the Ring Road’. This was the start of a great story.

    Bicycle highway F205

    The construction of the bicycle highway F205 along the Terhulpsesteenweg will provide a direct connection between Terhulpen / Hoeilaart and Brussels. In this way, the bicycle highway fulfills a missing link in the bicycle network.

    Bicycle highway F29

    The construction of bicycle highway F29 will provide a fast, safe and comfortable connection between Brussels, Tervuren and Leuven. We connect nearby neighborhoods through the future bicycle highway and build bicycle tunnels and bridges to avoid dangerous crossings with pedestrians, cars and public transportation.

    Ring cycle path FR0 between Vierarmen and E40

    Several bicycle highways run to and from Brussels. These are cycle routes that connect Brussels to cities at a distance of 15 to 20 km away from the capital. We are working on additional bicycle connections such as the Ring Cycle path, which follows the course of the Ring around Brussels (R0), to enable bike traffic between these bicycle highways.
