Avenue Charles Quint

Status : Study

As part of the Good Move plan, Brussels Mobility wants to redevelop the Avenue Charles-Quint from the Ring to the Basilica. This project is being carried out in collaboration with the municipalities of Berchem-Sainte-Agathe and Ganshoren, where consultation with the residents is an integral part of the process.

The redevelopment of this major thoroughfare will improve the quality of life of the local residents and the travelling conditions for everyone. The overall intention of the project is to reconcile urban and transport functions. Four main objectives have been defined:

  • Make the public space more pleasant for pedestrians: greening the avenue, creating more welcoming pavements and safer cycle paths, recreating the link between the two sides of the avenue by facilitating crossings at junctions.
  • Controlling incoming traffic: redesigning the landscape structure of the avenue and marking the entrance to the city.
  • Encourage public transport: improve performance and user comfort.
  • Improve soil permeability: maximise the amount of green space to encourage rainwater infiltration.

Avenue Charles Quint is bordered by several squares. Citizen intervention plays a key role in four of them, located in rue de Termonde, rue Oscar Maesschalck, clos Louis Banken and clos Willy Chambon. They are now being redesigned to make them user-friendly spaces for local residents. This redevelopment will also be an opportunity to rethink and make the exit from the Collège du Sacré-Coeur safer.

Brussels Mobility and the municipalities of Berchem-Sainte-Agathe and Ganshoren are inviting the citizens and users of the Avenue Charles Quint to give their opinion and to take part in participatory workshops
