Belgium: Residents criticise EU for turning Brussels into building site

“Well I have to say that on a daily basis I do not feel it personally but, after all, it is true that it is often during big holidays, it is annoying because you are expecting fewer people on the roads and to move faster but in fact this is the time when they decided to do all the construction work and it creates even more daily traffic jams than in during the rest of the year.” «At this moment... Еще there are construction sites everywhere, there are construction sites that are not finished and they are already starting new construction sites and suddenly it create huge traffic jams, which means that we are almost always late. Now it is since the beginning of the summer that there are constructions sites everywhere that block us and the customers too.» «I imagine that it is already a disaster as you can see with new construction sites, I do not know what it will become of it. I hope they will create clear areas for us, apart from that I do not see how traffic will come back here.» «It gets hellish especially in the last two years there is work everywhere in the city and construction sites are everywhere, we are really tired, for a big capital it is really difficult to travel in Brussels.» Residents of Brussels expressed their dissatisfaction at the EU on Tuesday for the continuous construction works on EU buildings which “create huge traffic jams” in the city. “At this moment there are construction sites everywhere, there are construction sites that are not finished and they are already starting new construction sites and suddenly it create huge traffic jams, which means that we are almost always late,” a local bus driver said. The EU owns numerous buildings across the city and recently MEPs announced plans to demolish the 24-year-old Brussels seat of the European Parliament and replace it with a 500 million euro structure.
