Do you have the feeling that there is too much traffic in Belgium? That there are too many traffic jams? It’s normal, the Walloon road network is almost saturated!

This Thursday at 4:42 p.m., it took 4 minutes and 12 seconds more to cover the 27 kilometers on the E42 between Houdeng (La Louvière) and Heppignies (Charleroi). More and more motorists are in despair because of traffic jams. “We have returned to the traffic volume we knew before the Covid pandemic. As the road network is almost saturated now, traffic jams are insured as soon as there is the slightest problem such as a construction site or an accident. Liège, Charleroi, Mons… I know that a broken down vehicle on a lane in these places will automatically lead to ten kilometers of queues and twenty minutes lost for users, as if for nothing”, explains Caroline Pourtois, director of Perex, the center that manages traffic fluctuations throughout Wallonia.

Just look at the map on the trafiroutes website to see that bright red dominates the roads of the Walloon backbone during the morning and evening rush hours. “All entry routes to large cities are concerned, in particular Tournai, Waterloo and Namur. But the cities most affected are Mons, Charleroi and Liège because the traffic there is particularly dense. The motorway at Mons accommodates transit traffic coming from France to Brussels and the ports, or from Germany via the E42. On the A54, there are also queues because it is used to its maximum”, indicates the manager of Perex.
