to create A new mobiliteitsstudie, professor of urbanization, Alexander D’hooghe (MIT) to propose solutions to the traffic jams in the country. As shared vans or more park & rides offer a solution.

Professor D’hooghe, the Oosterweeldossier ontwarde, along with his team at the renowned American university MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology (mit) in Boston, and the congestion of road traffic of our country, were investigated. He has studied the problems of the cities and towns of Brussels and Antwerp, belgium.

According to the researchers, costs of congestion, our country is a lot of money. According to the OECD (Organisation for Economic co-operation and Development), the costs to 1% or 2% of gross domestic product, which is a minimum of 4,35 billion euros, on an annual basis.


“The way we live, work and travel, it is no longer efficient, coordinated with each other,” says D’hooghe. For this reason, he was looking for ways out of the city. “The gap between the urban centres and in the outside suburbs may be a key to this node will finally have to separate.”

” D Height adjusts to to to to put on a ‘multi-modal hubs. Which are the places where many of the old (train, car, or metro), and new forms of transport (electric bikes, scooters, and e-hailing, and shared and private transfers) can come together. “At these hubs, everyone can be the most efficient means of transport to choose in order to make his or her journey to work, or to make an appointment to continue to do so”, says D’hooghe.

He does, however, propose to enter into a smooth flow, by, for example, at peak times, vehicles with multiple occupants given priority to, or use of separate bus lanes. “But for now, this is just a hypothesis and further research is needed.”

as for The hub, it is not only a mobiliteitspunt, but it is also a place where packages can be delivered. So that vans and trucks are less involved in the daily commute to the city.

the Brussels and Antwerp

now, The researchers have also worked on specific projects for Brussels and Antwerp, two of the world’s leaders in the field of action. In Antwerp and loss to motorists, on average, 34 minutes per day, or 30 per cent, more than without delay. In Brussels, a driver, a daily average of 44 minutes, or 38 percent more than there was no traffic.

Brussels and Antwerp, according to D’hooghe, is committed to the northern part of the city.

the Specific proposals are:

the Brussels

Two of the Park & Ride area with several multi-modal facilities to open, along the E19 highway, in the area of Peutie and the other in the vicinity of Grimbergen/Strombeek-Bever.

two of the major multi-modal hubs with parking facilities at the railway station in Vilvoorde, belgium and at Brussels Airport.

two of the smaller hubs, with the car in Zaventem-railway station, and Why, and the two multi-modal hubs in the Space and to the train station Bordet.

Conclusion: in practice, it would, for example, a person from Leuven to Brussels, the edge needs to first take the train to the airport to travel to, there is a trambus at a local mobipunt at the edge of the drive, and there’s an e-bike to take with you to work.


now, all the Park & Rides are prepared in the area of the Town, at the exit of the A12 motorway; in the civil war broke out, at the exit of the E19 motorway, and to the Team.

– multi-Modal hubs, among other things, Luchtbal and Schijnpoort.

Conclusion: In practice, it would be someone from the Waasland in Antwerp (as by the Oosterweelverbinding), first to be able to park at the Park & Ride area of Luchtbal and then, for example, an e-bike can take it in the direction of the center of the civil war broke out.
