Default New metro line completed

http://www.flandersnews.be/cm/de.red...s/080227_metro

Wed 27/02/08 - Contractors working for the Brussels public transport
company MIVB completed work on the missing metro link between
Delacroix Station in Anderlecht and West Station in Saint-Jans
Molenbeek.

The completion of the work means that the centre of Brussels is now
completely encircled by the metro.
(Belga)

Furthermore, the extension of line 2 and its merger with line 1 at
West Station means that the MIVB will be able to offer a more direct
underground service between Brussels South railway station, the
national stadium and the Heizel Exhibition Centre.

Despite the completion of the new stretch of track, there is still a
lot of work that needs to be done before big changes are made to the
capital's metro network in a year's times.

The restructuring and the purchase of new rolling stock will increase
capacity on the Brussels metro by 40%.

Further work will be carried out at West Station to turn it into an
intermodal public transport facility.
