Parts are Brussels are set to grind to a halt over the summer, bringing chaos to traffic, as scheduled road works in the Schaerbeek district begin. An enormous construction site on the Rue Gallait

is the main culprit, and many local residents have already complained about the large number of heavy vehicles passing through the residential streets and continued gridlock in the area.

The problems are not expected to ease until the start of September and residents are being urged to consider using public transport instead of their cars, such is the extent of the problem. Brussels city council has said that it has undertaken studies to finding a solution to traffic flow.
