As people adjust to the changing traffic situation, the Good Move circulation plan changes in the City of Brussels, which took effect on Tuesday. This has caused many traffic jams on the small ring road.
Despite the fact that no significant changes have been made to the traffic plan in the first few days, and the work on creating ground markings and signalising is still ongoing, the implementation of the circulation plan has resulted in congestion and traffic jams in the “Vijfhoek” (Pentagon).
“We are now seeing problem areas where a lot of traffic suddenly comes together, but that is not surprising.
