14.046.B | Brabantnet ‘Ringtrambus’
‘Ringtrambus’ is one of the public transport lines of the overall Brabantnet-study, conducted by the consortium Tractebel – Ney & Partners – Bas Smets for the Flemish Region to enhance the mobility around Brussels and relieve the saturated R0 Ring Road around Brussels. Originally designed as a tram line, it was converted in a tram bus project, encompassing all the necessary public works to let the 23 m long doubly articulated tram bus ride and stop on its line between Vilvoorde and Brussels Airport in the north of Brussels. Ney & Partners is in charge of the design of the stops. The stops are designed as strong mineral base with white concrete border stones on which a refined aluminum structure is anchored. The aluminum structure is made of bespoke extruded profiles with vertical grooves that can be combined as interlocking modules to form wind screens, shelter roofs or parapets in configurations that adapt to the various bus stop contexts.
