Boulevard Adolphe Max redevelopment
What is it about?
Reconstruction from facade to facade of the Boulevard Adolphe Max and its side streets: Rue de la Fiancée, Rue du Finistère, Rue du Pont-Neuf, Rue Saint-Pierre and Rue de Malines.
The aim of this redevelopment is to restore the Boulevard Adolphe Max to its former glory. The project includes the planting of new rows of trees and a quality pavement for the footpaths. This revaluation was chosen for the following reasons:
- improving the living environment of local residents and traders, and redesigning the boulevard so that the various traffic flows will run more smoothly
- creating the conditions for walks in the city and creating contiguous spaces for pedestrians on the north-south axis of the Pentagon (city centre)
- reducing car traffic for the benefit of pedestrians and creating bicycle connections with the surrounding neighbourhoods
- aligning the Boulevard Adolphe Max with the goals of the Good Move regional mobility plan
More details about the redevelopment plan (including mobility, traffic, greening, street furniture,...) are available in French and Dutch:
Timing, procedure and works
The permit application for the reconstruction was submitted to the Region in December 2020 and was declared complete in May 2021. As part of the procedure, a public inquiry and a Consultation Committee are being organized.
The public inquiry is held from 18 August to 16 September 2021. For 2 weeks there are red posters in the perimeter to announce the public inquiry. Everyone then has the opportunity to consult the building file online or at the Town Planning department of the City and to respond to the plans. If you wish, you can also ask to be invited to the Consultation Committee.
The plans are presented at the Consultation Committee and those present can ask questions or make an objection. The Consultation Committee then issues a recommendation to which the project must be adapted. Once the permit has been issued, the works can start.
