Using an Inactive Runway as a Taxiway

At airports with intersecting runways, are pilots allowed to use an inactive runway as a taxiway? For example at KDAB, if the intersecting runway 16/34 were to be closed with the 7/25 runways in use, can an aircraft treat the inactive runway like a normal taxiway? Thanks!

Usually this is not done unless there is a NOTAM Allowing it


I agree with Ethan_Brown, but from my experience, you can still do it as long as you don’t disturb somebody else. I would simply announce a runway crossing. Especially at smaller airports, this shouldn’t be a problem.
