Brussels Arts-Loi Metro station closed due to fire service protest

The Arts-Loi Metro station in Brussels is closed off to the public on Tuesday morning as a result of the national demonstration by the police and fire services – which is part of the announced week of protest actions organised by the public services.

Over 500 police officers, firefighters and ambulances are gathered around the station and even a helicopter is circling overhead. The demonstration started this morning at 10:00 and protestors marched along the Congress Column towards the Arts-Loi station.

“When there are too many people above ground, the police can decide to close a metro station. Due to the manifestation, they decided to do so on Tuesday morning,” An Van hamme, spokesperson for the Brussels public transport company STIB, told The Brussels Times.

“Metros will continue to drive through the station, but they will not stop there,” she added.
