BELGIAN TRAMWAYS PREPARE FOR FULL METRO WORKING

A total of five Belgian cities are now building--or firmly planning to build--new subway systems. With the exception of Liege they are, in the initial stages, confining metro operations to tram working. But tunnel construction in each city is designed for eventual conversion to full-scale metro working as the demand for mass transit grows. And in Brussels, where the first pre-metro line went into operation in 1969, construction has already begun on the city's first full-scale metro line.
