The Line 109A RAVeL seems to be with us for only a short stretch. And yet it is an important link because, ultimately, it will connect the Mons region and the Borinage with Thudinie and the Sambre valley as far as the Botte du Hainaut. And that’s only fitting, because a series of lines join up with this route that now delight RAVeL fans. It gives access to Line 108 to Binche or Erquelinnes, and to Line 109/1 to Lobbes and Thuin.

Line 109/1 alternates through wood and forest. Between farmland, ponds, streams and Pincemaille forest, the RAVeL offers you surprising peace and quiet among several regions given over to industry, carnivals and the busyness of urban life.

The route follows its own safe path along the RAVeL of Lines 109A, 109/1 and Sambre.

Full directional signs are in place along the entire route.
