#Brussels city centre becomes a huge "living street" area (20-kph) effective tomorrow.
This is aimed at slowing down traffic and allowing pedestrians to use the whole public space, making physical distancing easier.
It will last 3 months, possibly a little more. I updated everything in #OpenStreetMap, and added "description:covid19" tags to explain its temporary nature and keep the former highway type. That will make it easier to revert after the summer.
Large gaps in this structure are parks, pedestrian areas and existing living streets. Those do not change, of course.
@bxl_forever How many streets?
@yann I did it in several changesets. That touched 945 ways.
JOSM reported 351 different street names.
