Brussels-Capital Region protects the iconic avenue Louis Bertrand

On the proposal of State Secretary for Urbanism, Pascal Smet, the Brussels Government has decided today to protect Avenue Louis Bertrand.

The avenue is not only known for its curved route, the undulating green central reservation and its beautiful overview, but also for the architectural quality of the buildings along the road. It is without doubt one of the most majestic axes of the capital. The inhabitants and the municipality of Schaerbeek were in favour of protecting the landscape of the stately avenue.

“Avenue Louis Bertrand, with its stately green central reservation and its beautiful panorama of the Josaphat Park is a wonderful part of Brussels. That’s why we protect this landscape. We also create the possibility to widen sidewalks, to create separate cycle paths and car-free areas. In short, the avenue will belong to the residents. They will be able to enjoy the public space for a walk, a bike ride or just for recreational purposes. That was also the aim at the beginning of the last century, when the avenue was designed,” says the Brussels State Secretary for Urbanism, Pascal Smet (one.brussels).

Avenue Louis Bertrand is one of the most prestigious avenues in Brussels. It was built in 1905 and links the Church of Saint-Servatius on Chaussée de Haecht to Josaphat Park. This stunning avenue was named after the Belgian politician and author Louis Bertrand, who was one of the founding fathers of the Belgian Labour Party in 1885.
