The Brussels government has inaugurated a new P+R car park on the Heysel plateau, suitable for around 100 parking spaces. The car park and the ninth Park and Ride in the Brussels Region should make commuting to Brussels smoother.
“With P+R Heysel, we now provide parking infrastructure at all major approach roads, with smooth connections to the MIVB/STIB network,” says Brussels Mobility Minister Elke Van den Brandt (Groen).
Almost 2 800 parking spaces
Until recently, there was no P+R infrastructure in the north of Brussels, except the one at UZ Brussel with 50 spaces. The new Heysel P+R is accessible from the Brussels Ring Road via exit eight toward Wemmel. The entrance to the car park is on Avenue de l’Empereur Charlotte in Laeken.
The Heysel P+R will be explicitly reserved for commuters with a season ticket and a valid MIVB/STIB season ticket. The car park will be accessible free of charge from Monday to Friday from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The new parking complex at the Heysel site joins the existing P+Rs at UZ Brussel, Lennik-Erasmus, COOVI, Stalle, Delta, Herrmann-Debroux, Kraainem, and Roodebeek. Together, these account for 2 777 parking spaces.
