Urban mobility Plan Mechelen station

 

This ambitious urban mobility plan located in Mechelen (near Antwerp, Belgium) aims to completely refurbish and upgrade the central station and its surroundings. The goal of the project is to improve the city’s accessibility via public transport and seamlessly integrate the new infrastructure with the historical city centre with maximum respect for the environment. The area will be focused around bikers and pedestrians.
