Tilburg train station closed for days
The central station in Tilburg will be closed for two more days due to construction work. This affects travelers to Den Bosch, Breda and Oisterwijk. Buses will be traveling along those routes today and Saturday. Train traffic from and to Tilburg has been stopped since Saturday for the construction of three new tunnels. The intention was that trains would be running again by today, but due to an accident this could not happen. Part of an old platform collapsed on Saturday. A concrete slab came down, seriously injuring a construction worker. The placement of two passages is also taking longer than expected. "We are working in a historic and monumental building and to prevent damage, we have to work with great care" says ProRail.
