Brussels Metro North
Extension of the Brussels metro line 3 to the north of the capital
The new line is planned for an automatic metro which will be able to transport more than 60,000 passengers each year.
- In phase 1, the current tunnel located between Gare du Nord and Albert will be transformed to accommodate the metro.
- In phase 2, a new 4.5 km structure will be built to connect Bordet to Gare du Nord.
To create the junction between these 2 tunnels, a structure of approximately 150m is built under the tracks of the Gare du Nord train station. The junction tunnel will initially serve as a rear station. It will allow metro 3 to return in the opposite direction towards Albert station. The continuity of metro 3 traffic will be ensured on the entire line.
The second phase also provides for the creation of 7 stations (Liedts, Colignon, Verboekhoeven, Riga, Tilleul, Paix and Bordet) and a depot in Haren for the storage and maintenance of metros.
