On 20 September, this year’s Car-Free Sunday in Brussels was organised with a wide range of activities and events all over the city. Every year, from 16 to 22 September, the Brussels-Capital Region organises a Mobility Week aimed at encouraging the residents, businesses and schools to use public transport, bikes, walking and other forms of mobility. Photographer Fadi Dalati shares with us some of his impressions of the car-free Sunday around the Cinquantenaire neighbourhood.
Car-Free Sunday became a real festival for all generations – it is a day when everyone goes out and bikes take over supremacy over cars on the city’s streets, avenues and boulevards. Cars are nowhere to be seen on this day, except for the public transport, taxis, coaches and emergency / public services. The whole region is closed to traffic from 9:30 to 19:00. Any vehicles still allowed on the roads must comply with a speed limit of 30 km/h.
