Brussels is The place under the north station where transmigranten stay, it seems for months at a refugee camp in the heart of the city. Now would also be diseases such as scabies, tuberculosis and malaria has broken out. The bus drivers of The Line fear for their own health.

About the situation at the north station, there is already a lot of ink was shed. The Line threatened previously to its links to move to the Noordplein, because the bus drivers on the bus stops below the station, not safe to feel and the necessary sanitary facilities are missing. Despite numerous consultations, it does not look to be that meanwhile, the improvement recorded is. On the contrary, through the police, the socialist union now learned that there are scabies, malaria, and tuberculosis broken out. The bus drivers fear for their own health.

Police wearing surgical masks

“According to the company medical officer, there is no danger, but I call that sweets to the people to appease,” says Marcel Conters, president of the GCPS BIKE. “Even the police drive here only with a combi along. If they still get out their car, they wear surgical masks. That illustrates how unhealthy it is.”

The transmigranten that all months under the tracks live, want to travel to England. Sleep, eat, drink, go to the bathroom, everything they do in the north station. Of any hygiene, there is already long nothing more difficult to discern. Fish waste, leftover food and a penetrating wietgeur do, and many people gagging. The bus drivers of The Line dare not more to get off. “Not only is the stench and the filth is terrible, if we want, then we have all of our belongings, otherwise they will be stolen”, according to a Line-driver, who prefers to remain anonymous.

The drivers had to draw for the umpteenth time to sound the alarm. “If nothing changes, our bucket is all about,” says Conters. “Some drivers come here six to eight times per day, I need politicians to be here for another three hours to stay. In the place the ball from one side to the other thrown, and continues to be a solution.”
