Hosted by De Tijd / L’Echo

Moreover, the traffic infrastructure that links both locations will have to be fundamentally altered and the automobile will have to make place for other types of transportation. How can this be addressed concretely? Will it suffice to adjust the current situation or will we have to start with a clean sheet?
