We support parts of this proposal
and we can implement them.
An intelligent system is currently being deployed by Brussels Mobility. The (new) lights have been specially selected for their serviceability and wide availability of spare parts. Any citizen can report a breakdown on Fixmystreet. This is followed up in real time.
An inventory and accurate follow-up of maintenance will soon be facilitated by a global asset management system for all Brussels Mobility assets.
The Brussels Capital Region recently set up a joint venture with Sibelga (intermunicipal lighting company) and provided a substantial budget to develop the permanent lighting of exceptional art nouveau buildings in Brussels. In a first phase, 5 exceptional art-nouveau buildings (Horta House, Maison Hannon, Hotel Solvay, Hotel Van Eetvelde and Cauchie House) were selected and 3 lighting design firms were contracted to develop these 5 projects. The lighting test is in progress and the first illuminations will be ready starting this year. This new collaboration between the Region and Sibelga is an important step forward to create high-quality lighting projects, implement the existing Regional Lighting Plan and make Brussels a beautiful city.
