Final decision about new Brussels metro link
There were two options for 'Metro Noord', which will link the Brussels North Station to Bordet: plan A via Helmet and Vrede, or plan B via Riga and Linde.
The government has finally opted for version B, which takes a course a bit more to the north.
The new link is good news for Evere and Schaarbeek residents, who will enjoy a faster link to the centre of the capital.
They will have to be patient though, as the works are only expected to start in 2018.
The new link will have 7 different stops between the North Station and Bordet:
- Liedts (right below Liedts Square in Schaarbeek)
- Colignon (at the Schaarbeek City Hall)
- Verboekhoven (with links to the Regional Express Net or GEN-network)
- Riga (Riga Square in Schaarbeek)
- Linde (Evere)
- Vrede (Evere)
The final stop in Bordet is located close to the Bordet rail and tram links. The new metro line will be labelled "Line 3".
