Reconstruction main entrance with bull statues starts Monday, Feb. 27

From Monday, Feb. 27, 2023, contractor MONUMENT VANDEKERCKHOVE will begin major repair and renovation work on the main entrance to the site at Abattoir. The bull statues will be completely refreshed but also the gatehouses as well as the wrought iron gates and fencing are in need of repair. These works are part of the overall renovation plans of the covered market, which, like the bull statues, is classified as a protected monument. These works will take several months to complete. In principle, the main entrance on Ropsy Chaudron Street near the bull statues will always remain accessible to pedestrians, cyclists, cars and vans. Trucks must take the entrance via the Nijverheidskaai 168. This is mandatory! The contractor will demarcate the site with fences during the works.
