Our house drops away by new Albert Heijn supermarket 1.5 km away
Borsbeek The residents of the Granvellelaan in Borsbeek have to suffer under the works of the new Albert Heijn, one and a half kilometres away. Cause is a leeggepompte stream, making the stability of a number of houses threatened. The houses show cracks and doors to get not to close. Residents hope for a quick solution but must wait.

Albert Heijn is working with the construction of the largest store of Flanders to the Herentalsebaan on the border between Deurne, Wommelgem and Wijnegem. For many people a large boost, but for Sandra Musschoot from Borsbeek running the build from a true nightmare. Since the works are ongoing, can the number of cracks in the walls, there is no more tracking. “Some are up to centimeters in size,” she says. “I have nothing against the arrival of that store but I would have my house back as it was.”

Cold Brook

The cause would be the Cold Stream, for the work is fully emptied. In the past, it was that brook overwelfd but because the contractor is also an underground garage builds, had the water pumped out for that work. That caused a lot of instability which the houses now gradually sink and skewing. “My house is inclined to the rear and had to be propped up. My back door, and the door of the toilet I don't get to close because everything is so skewed have failed. Recently, leaks to the roof and drop down everything in the bathroom and in the garage,” says Sandra done.

Also, the neighbors have to deal with similar problems that cause it not to the house of Sandra. “It started in september with few exterior walls. Our neighbors were at that time busy with little renovation. First we thought that was the cause. When eventually the walls burst showed, we are even going to knock on your door. But it soon became clear that they burst had, and that it is nothing to do with their work had to do,” Sally continued.


Sandra had meanwhile an expert appoint and also the management of Albert Heijn was addressed. “But I did not feel that our complaints seriously. They asked me if I really think I am the only one who even going to complain,” says Sandra. The insurance also sent their expert, but a lot of it they could not do, she said. “So I just wait and see. And that is very frustrating. I wait and see how the cracks keep getting bigger. You see them grow day by day.”
