“I can’t take it anymore, it annoys me”: Cathy’s ordeal this morning in traffic jams, due to work at the Léonard intersection

The cumulative traffic jams this Thursday morning on the roads reached more than 600 km. Queues mainly caused by work at the Leonard crossroads on the ring road.

This project has very concrete consequences on the lives of motorists. An RTL info team followed Cathy, a driver who lives in Genappe, in Walloon Brabant. She drops her child off every morning at school in Auderghem, in the Brussels region.

Usually, his journey took 30 minutes on average. From the start of the work, it can last up to 2 hours. “Ah that’s it, it’s slowing down and that’s clearly linked to the Leonard crossroads. It’s 6:57 a.m. and we’re at a standstill, I can’t believe it”, Cathy exclaims with annoyance.

A hell that has become daily for this mother, forced to show a lot of patience. “I can’t take it anymore, it annoys me. We don’t know how to plan our journeys, we don’t know how to predict the time it takes, we don’t know how to predict whether it’s going to be smoother or not on this day or that day, we don’t know anything, I don’t know anymore, 1h20, 1h30, I don’t know.she whispers.

This Thursday morning, the mother left earlier, hoping to avoid traffic jams. “We ended up leaving almost an hour earlier and I still expected to arrive earlier”growls Cathy, her hands clenching on her steering wheel.
