Rail network changes for 2015 announced
Dutch rail maintenance company ProRail is announcing some changes to the rail network in The Netherlands planned for 2015. The Dutch rail system is planned to improve with several large projects and some reorganizations, De Telegraaf reports. The 'spaghetti'-like rail network around Utrecht, for example, will be tackled. In Delft, a tunnel with new station is being built. In Eindhoven, the southern end of the station is being renewed, and there will be a new passenger tunnel for travelers at Zwolle. On Monday, ProRail announced that there will be new train schedules, dividing 3.3 million train trips over 23 transporters. The new schedule will be introduced on the 14th of December. For passengers between Amsterdam and Schiphol, traveling in the night will become easier. There will be trains every night, as opposed to buses three times a week. The Benelux train to Brussels-South will no longer go from Den Haag Holland Spoor, but from Amsterdam Centraal. The new Den Haag Centraal station will finally be finished by the end of this year, and there will also be new stations at Nijmegen Goffert and Barneveld Zuid.
