Hoeilaart, Ecoduct “Groenendaal”

Groenendaal Ecoduct. This is the name of the new ecoduct over the ring around Brussels that will connect both sides of the Sonian Forest.

The construction of the ecoduct at Groenendaal is planned for 2016 and has to be ready by 2017 at the latest. In the summer of that year the name will be visible from the R0 to passing motorists. It will be the first ecoduct across the Brussels Ring.

The ecoduct fits in with the European LIFE+ OZON project that is tackling the fragmentation of the Sonian Forest. By 2017 there will be more than ten fauna passages across and under the roads going through the forest.
