Renewal of eight kilometers of bicycle path in Borgloon and Kortessem

The Roads and Traffic Agency (AWV) will be renewing the cycle path on the N76 Rullecovenstraat and Opeindestraat between Kerniel (Borgloon) and Kortessem from Monday 5 September. The cycle path is almost eight kilometers long and will be widened on both sides. The passage for motorized traffic will remain possible via narrowed lanes and a detour.

Flemish Minister of Mobility Lydia Peeters wants to focus on safe bicycle traffic and has earmarked 970,000 euros for this: “Based on the recovery plan, I foresee additional investments in bicycle infrastructure. We are carrying out about 30 similar projects throughout Limburg, in order to improve the condition of the bicycle. to strongly improve cycle paths along the regional roads. We want to create a cycling reflex in every Flemish person so that they spontaneously think of the bicycle every time they travel.”

The Roads and Traffic Agency will break up the cycle path on both sides and widen it to two meters. The works will start on Monday 5 September and will take place in two phases. First it is the cycle path in the direction of Kortessem and then in the direction of Borgloon. Cyclists can ride in both directions on the cycle path on the other side during the works.

The works will take about two months.
