Belgium approved plan to double the volume of rail freight by 2030

This plan has been approved by the government

In concrete, investments will be made in the critical parts of the network so that all bottlenecks will be eliminated by the end of 2027. The rail network will also be equipped for longer trains, up to 740 meters in length, to increase the competitiveness of rail. And, there will be better harmonisation of the available train paths. This will be a responsibility of Infrabel.

At the same time, Belgium will make an effort to remove the barriers to cross-border transport.
