Works at the Place de Ninove

The works for the reconstruction of the Place de Ninove (Ninoofseplein) and Rue de la Poudrière (Kruitmolenstraat) continue. 

In order to limit the impact of the works on the neighbourhood, phase 3 (reconstruction of the Rue de la Poudrière between the Place de Ninove and the Rue de l'Abattoir and paving the middle of the square) has been divided into subphases to ensure good accessibility of private garages and shops. Each subphase requires a drying period for the paving (2 weeks) before it can be opened to traffic.

Planning Place de Ninove works

From 9 May 2022:

  • Paving the middle of the Place de Ninove and laying a grass strip between the paving stones. The reopening of the centre of the square is planned for early July, depending on the growth of the grass in the joints.
  • The last section of the Rue de la Poudrière and the road along the Place de Ninove (phase 3c) will be started as marked in red on the plan below. The works will last until 8 July 2022 (including the drying period), subject to favourable weather conditions. During this period, access to this section of Rue de la Poudrière will only be possible for deliveries via the Boulevard de l'Abattoir as shown on the plan below.

From 7 June 2022:

  • Phase 3b (yellow perimeter on the plan) will be completely reopened to traffic after the pavement drying period.
