Conversion of the former railway line 115 from Braine-l’Alleud to Clabecq via Braine-le-Château into a greenway (RAVeL as is named in Walloon region). Will connect with the RAVel on the Charleroi-Brussels canal, part of the regional cycle route network W3. Located in a Urban and suburban area. Work will include rehabilitation of the engineering structures (45) including the Estrée viaduct (brick bridge with 16 arches) and construction of the RAVeL- greenway (11.2km): asphalting over a width of 3m and a lateral bridleway. Intervention by the Walloon Region, the municipalities concerned and the Province of Walloon Brabant. This greenway is very important for soft modes of mobility as it links Braine l’Alleud station to the Hain area and further on to Clabecq and Tubize, avoiding the Tubize road which is very busy with traffic. Work on the RAVeL is in progress.
Note: The map show an aapproximate itinerary, which will be detailed after the completion of the greenway.
Total distance: 0 m
Total climbing: 0 m
Total descent: 0 m

The potential of this future RAVeL is significant and very diversified; it will be the backbone of many safe rides & walks for children, families, less experienced cyclists, etc.

  • Sports centres, schools, municipal administration premises, shops, etc. are close to this structuring greenway.
  • Will avoid the crossroads of Mont-Saint-Pont, too dangerous in its current configuration.
  • Will permit reaching companies located in the industrial zone by bike,
  • Connection with the important communication node that is the SNCB and TEC Braine-l’Alleud station, which serves around ten destinations.
  • Connection with the towpath of the Canal de Charleroi Brussels, part of the regional RaVel #3

This greenway has been strongly demanded locally for sustainable mobility. The highest expected use  will be cycling for active mobility; it will be, as generally in greenways, suitable for cycling, walking, running, horse riding.

Cyclists, walkers, horse riders and, most likely, people with reduced mobility (to be confirmed upon completion of the work), as usual  in the RAVel  -greenways.

There is a plan for trasforming the abandoned railway into a greenway. Works are currently underway. The work is funded by the Walloon Region and the Province of Walloon Brabant is the contracting authority for this project.
