22/01/2012 – The pre-metro station Horta in Saint-Gilles is currently out of service due to damage caused in the night from Saturday to Sunday, Brussels court officials have informed.
STIB hopes to reopen Horta station on Monday morning.
The station was completely stained with paint and the doors were blocked with pieces of wood. The damage is severe. The tram lines passing through the station do not stop here for thetime being.
The court in Brussels descended on the scene Sunday morning. The station has now been released by the court. It is now being cleaned by teams from the STIB.
“We are working hard to clean as soon as the station. The goal is to reopen the pre-metro station Monday morning. Tram lines 3, 4 and 51 do not stop there Sunday,” said Van An Hamme, spokesman for the company to transport Brussels.
