Final decision about new Brussels metro link

Published on May 09, 2014

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".
