Train traffic has already suffered significant delays earlier, in July, because of repairs on the tracks. Just like before, porters will help passenger on the Amsterdam and Schiphol stations carry their luggage between 09:00 am and 23:00 pm.

The service should offer a more comprehensive railroad service,  connecting the northeast and west of the Netherlands. More regular maintenance is scheduled for the next few years.

Repairs will start on Saturday morning at 02:00 am and finish on Monday morning 05:00 am. There will be no train traffic between Schiphol and Amsterdam Bijlmer Arena, Schiphol and Diemen Zuid, and Schiphol and Amsterdam Sloterdijk.

The timetable for night trains is adjusted. They will not travel by way of Schiphol. The Thalys will also not travel through Schiphol this weekend.
