Brussels has announced a renewed initiative to improve traffic mobility and public transport between the city and surrounding areas, which would see increased cycle routes, the extension of public transport and new road links.

Transport operators STIB and De Lijn have been invited to put forward proposals for the extension of existing lines and new cycle routes have been flagged as essential. Currently just one per cent of commuters in the Brussels area, where the average commute is around 12 kilometers, make the journey by bike.

Other proposals include improving the ring road north of Brussels and increasing traffic on the Anvers-Bruxelles-Charleroi canal to relieve road traffic.
