During recent sampling in the intercultural center De Centrale in Ghent the presence of asbestos has been identified in the old technical basements. An air measurement is performed tomorrow morning by an external specialized firm. Once the results of this measurement are known, the City of Ghent will take all appropriate measures. As a precaution all of the activities in De Centrale are suspended/canceled until Monday, June 13th. This means that both public and staff no longer have access to the building until then.
