Armand Matthijs from Rebus once again draws attention to bicycle safety on the Astridlaan, among others. ‘Several footpaths are currently barely or not accessible’, adds Armand Matthijs. ‘We know the classic excuses: ‘WWe are not allowed to mow the roadsides, we cannot be everywhere at once….‘Besides the issue. The bed of all public roads must be accessible at all times. Article 38, 3° of the Municipal Roads Decree 2019 states: ‘it is prohibited to impede, hinder or make impossible the access to a municipal road or its use and management.
Specifically, Rebus asks that all roads and temporary diversions are safe for wheelchair users. ‘In particular, we can refer here to the narrow sloping passage at the height of the subsided three houses on Gentsestraat’, adds Armand Matthijs.
