The implementation of line 37 will have a twofold impact on bus line 43:
- Its southern terminus will be moved from Kauwberg to Vivier d'Oie/Diesdelle. Bus line 37 will complement the existing lines 60 and 43. So there will be an additional bus on the narrowest section of the chaussée de Saint-Job/Sint-Jobsesteenweg. In order to avoid traffic congestion on this route, it is better to limit the terminus of line 43 to Vivier d'Oie/Diesdelle.
This reduction of the route will only have a limited impact. In fact, the new bus line 37 will partially follow the route of line 43 and will thus restore a more direct link from the area of the gare de Linkebeek/Linkebeek station and Homborch towards Saint-Job/Sint-Job via the avenue Dolez/Dolezlaan.
- One bus 43 out of two will stop at Héros/Helden instead of its usual terminus at Observatoire/Sterrenwacht in order to limit traffic congestion on the avenue De Fré/De Frélaan where bus line 37 will complement the current lines 41, 43 and 38.
The implementation of bus 37 is planned on 6 May 2019.
In the municipality of Uccle/Ukkel, the works related to the bus master plan will be carried out from the end of January to June 2019.
The precise work schedule will be communicate locally via a house-to-house mail from the contractor 5 days before the start of the works.
