The Flemish Government is to redevelop the Brussels ring road from Zaventem to Groot-Bijgaarden. To this end, it wants to collect as much data as possible about the traffic flows on the main and secondary road network. The cut-through traffic can be examined via the authorities of 19 communes, because it is important to obtain a true picture of the traffic situation.
To collect these data, the government is to call on a Be-Mobile web tool. The Proximus subsidiary – and smart mobility specialist – gathers the necessary data from sat navs, smartphones and fleet systems in vehicles. These data will be used for:
With the help of the tool, tests can be carried out to see what impact a traffic management action would have. This makes it possible to look at whether cut-through traffic would take a different route because it is barred in a given location.
The 19 communes that are participating in the project are all in the busy, frequently congested area of the Flemish Fringe: Dilbeek, Asse, Wemmel, Merchtem, Opwijk, Meise, Grimbergen, Zemst, Vilvoorde, Steenokkerzeel, Machelen, Zaventem, Kortenberg, Kraainem, Wezembeek-Oppem, Tervuren, Huldenberg, Overijse and Hoeilaart.
