Another farmer's protest is set to cause traffic chaos in and around the capital.

A farmers’ protest is expected to cause major traffic problems this Wednesday in Brussels. Police estimate that between three and four hundred tractors will be heading to the capital, mainly from Hainaut and Namur. 

The farmers from Namur will travel along the E411, chaussée de Wavre, Herman Debroux, boulevard du Souverain, chaussée de La Hulpe, and chaussée de Waterloo. Those coming from Hainaut will take the N5 and chaussée de Waterloo.

The farmers will meet in the Bois de la Cambre at midday, and are expected to leave around 4.30pm via the Avenue de Tervuren.
The farmers are angry with the EU Commission's rejection of their calls for higher prices for dairy products.
