In order to improve accessibility and increase livability, Brussels is currently taking action to improve its public transport network and simultaneously transform the city's public space. During the construction phase, these required infrastructure developments, often on main roads within the city, have a temporary but significant impact on multiple stakeholders.
In southern Brussels, the existing tramline 94 will be extended over two kilometers on Woluwe Boulevard. Simultaneously, this boulevard will be transformed into a modern city boulevard, giving specific attention to cyclists and pedestrians while ensuring smooth traffic for car users.
The CIVIC project will test and demonstrate
Infrastructure projects on a major urban boulevard, with several stakeholders affected during the construction phase (such as schools, shops, shopping centers, residents, visitors, commuters, etc.), call for new participatory decision-making tools in order to select accompanying measures that are widely supported by the different stakeholders. The transformation of Woluwe Boulevard will be the focus of the demonstration in Brussels. This will be the first demonstration in the CIVIC project and is aimed mainly at developing the participatory framework, on which the subsequent pilots can build.
