A Study of the Setting Up of Lorry-Dedicated Routes in the Brussels Capital Region

Traffic regulation is one way to reduce negative effects produced by heavy freight traffic in urban areas. This chapter expounds the strategy the Brussels Capital Region is setting up to counteract these effects, especially by providing mandatory corridors for heavy freight vehicles and by restricting their access to residential areas. The four components of the strategy are described as: (1) heavy traffic regulations on routes (imposed or recommended) and their enforcement; (2) the required regulatory and direction signing; (3) communication and consultation tools to be developed in collaboration with the actors; and (4) the design of roads and structures.
