BRUSSELS — Starting from Thursday, motorists will be able to view the traffic situation on the Brussels ring road on the website of the Flemish Traffic Centre.
Since June 2005, footage of the Antwerp ring road and its access roads has been available on the website, along with the access roads to the Brussels ring road.
But the amount of camera footage has now been more than doubled.
Motorists can now see the traffic situation at the junction of the E313 and E314 motorways near Hasselt (dubbed the Lummense klaverblad or the Lummen cloverleaf).
The amount of footage of the E40 and E17 motorways at Ghent has also been expanded, news agency Belga reported.
The Flemish Traffic Centre supplies traffic information and oversees the flow of traffic on Flemish motorways.
To do that, it uses some 600 cameras and the images of 40 cameras are now available on its website.
Based on the information available, motorists can adjust their route or leave at another time to avoid traffic jams. That helps to improve the flow of traffic.
The centre's website is at: www.verkeerscentrum.be.
