The line traced by Overleiestraat, Budastraat and Leiestraat streets links Grote Markt, at the heart of the town of Kortrijk, with Astridpark, at the gateway to the 19th-century city, and forms part of the north-south axis running right through the place. It constitutes a backbone along which much of the historic fabric is organized and the focus for a complex series of urban activities. With its sinuous geometry and varying width, this axis has been increasingly developed to facilitate vehicle circulation with little attention to factors of urban continuity and pedestrian use. Rather than being perceived as a whole with an organizational role within the town fabric, it has only ever been seen as a series of isolated fragments joining remnants of streets. Continuity, smooth flow, ease of interpretation and consolidation of the full length of this axis are the values highlighted by the plan.
