Greater accessibility at Roodebeek
A brand new footbridge has been built at Roodebeek, the last station to be partially renovated in 2021. It allows passengers to cross the station without having to go onto the platforms, which is a great improvement. This work was a major challenge, since the entire structure is suspended from the ceiling, without support, and was carried out entirely at night, without interrupting the metro traffic.
Another significant improvement is the application of new pedestrian signage principles to improve the floor signage for the visually impaired. A new lift and automatic and accessible toilets have also been installed.
