STIB warns of disruption to Brussels tram service over Easter weekend

Four Brussels tram lines will be interrupted over the Easter weekend by construction and maintenance work between Porte de Hal and Thomas, transport operator STIB has announced. 

From 29 March to 1 April, work will be carried out at three sites on the North-South axis, meaning service on lines 3, 4, 25 and 55 will be interrupted. Trams 25 and 55 will be diverted from Liedts to Masui. Anneessens, Bourse, De Brouckère, Rogier and Gare du Nord will not be served during the works. Lemonnier and Gare du Midi will only be served by lines 51 and 82.

Shuttle buses will be provided and passengers with STIB tickets can use them to travel on SNCB trains between Midi and North stations during the works.

Staff will be present at Porte de Hal, Midi, De Brouckère, Rogier and Gare du Nord to guide passengers during the works, which are being carried out in preparation for the eventual transformation of the North-South tram line into a full metro service.
