Waste piled up on the abandoned A601 motorway near Liege

Belgium creates rubbish highway for flood debris

In eastern Belgium, an abandoned highway is covered by kilometres of rubbish. The makeshift dump -- comprising 90,000 tonnes of domestic debris stretching a total eight kilometres in both directions of the closed A601 motorway north of the city of Liege -- is testament to the devastation wreaked by unprecedented floods in mid-July.
