In the part of the Leenstraat (Grotenberge) between the Gentsesteenweg and the Industrielaan, works have started for the replacing the concrete road with an asphalt pavement. After the terms of reference, award method and price estimate had been approved in the municipal council meeting on 21 January, the execution of the works was assigned by the Municipal Executive on 21 March to the company DM Roadbuilding from Geraardsbergen, against the price cost price of 112,011.87 euros.
The planned execution period runs until Friday 26 August. During this period, it must detour motorized traffic via Gentsesteenweg, Sluizeken and Industrielaan (and vice versa). There is a limited passage for cyclists. This resurfacing will put an end to local residents’ complaints about vibrations in their homes due to the poor condition of the concrete slabs.
