article imageMice blamed for eating plans to fix traffic problems in Brussels

By Owen Weldon     Feb 21, 2016 in Odd News
Brussels - Officials in Brussels said municipal laziness was not the reason for delays in repairs to the city's streets. They say mice are to blame.
Underground tunnels beneath Brussels crumble, and as a result city streets continue to be closed down. This has led to traffic headaches, but officials told the regional parliament last week that mice ate the city's plans to fix the problem, and that's why construction has been delayed.
Christian Debuysscher, the former head of Brussels' infrastructure agency, spoke at a hearing in regards to gridlock traffic in the city. Bebuysscher said the original plans to fix the problem was eaten up by mice.
Debuysscher said that the plans were actually placed inside a pier under a viaduct in 1989 because the agency didn't have a proper office. He said it took 20 years before workers went to grab them so they could move them to a storage room, but they were too late.
The condition of the roads have been a hot issue in Belgium, and there is an estimated bill of around $1.1 billion to repair all of tunnels.
Debuysscher was asked why infrastructure was in bad shape and he said that they sounded the alarm years ago. He said he issued numerous warnings to ministers about the lack of specialized technicians and engineers.
