Current and planned roadworks

As a national airport located in the heart of Europe, Brussels Airport is the ideal gateway to Brussels, Belgium and the rest of the world. The extensive road network surrounding the airport is a valuable asset, but it requires regular maintenance and occasional roadworks. Here, you will find a summary of ongoing and upcoming roadworks near Brussels Airport.

The Vilvoorde Viaduct is one of the busiest traffic junctions in the country, with more than 150,000 vehicles passing over it every day. After 50 years, the viaduct is in need of thorough renovation. 

Impact
Between August 2023 and the end of 2025, the works will mainly concern the inner ring road. To carry out the work, the speed limit will be reduced to 50 km/h and the traffic lanes will be narrowed. Traffic coming from Ghent, Bruges and the north/north-west of Brussels to the airport may be disrupted.

Location
Vilvoorde, on the northern edge of Brussels
