The Department of Mobility and Public Works (MOW) and 19 municipalities from the Vlaamse Rand can request traffic data for 1 year using the Be-Mobile FLOWcheck web tool. The municipalities can also carry out traffic analyzes themselves. The traffic flows will be fully mapped on the main road network and the underlying road network.
Flanders is going to tackle the traffic jams around Brussels with a comprehensive investment plan. The Ring around Brussels will be redeployed between Zaventem and Groot-Bijgaarden (from E40 to E40). In preparation, it is important to map the rat-runs in Flemish Brabant to minimize the obstacle of rebuilding the Ring.
The MOW Department chose to work with a web tool of Be-Mobile and to also provide access to all municipal councils concerned to conduct thorough traffic analyzes on their own territory (and 5 km beyond). The web tool is based on the so-called Floating Car Data – historical and anonymous data from GPS devices, smartphones and fleet systems in vehicles.
