Soft mobility is gaining ground

The part of Rue du Marché-aux-Herbes between Grand-Rue and Rue de la Boucherie, as well as the section of Grand-Rue between Rue du Nord and Rue du Fossé became pedestrian zones on 9 January. This change was introduced in an effort to make the Old Town and its shops more attractive, as well as to redistribute public space in favour of pedestrians and cyclists. These areas are now closed to through traffic, except for permit holders with an access sticker. According to the traffic regulations, parking is prohibited in a pedestrian zone. Deliveries are permitted from 6:00 to 10:00, and cycling is permitted between 18:00 and 10:00.
