A condition for providing good and reliable services to our customers is the availability of a performant infrastructure. This can be reached by building new routes or upgrading existing routes in order to accommodate the predicted traffic volumes and alleviate bottlenecks. This is supported by segregating traffic and specifically adapting lines to the demand of freight trains, leading to increased capacities and improvements in operational quality for all types of transport (freight, passenger and commuter).

Over the years a number of major projects have been realised on the Corridor, such as:

  • Betuwe route Rotterdam - Zevenaar
  • Liefkenshoek Rail Link
  • Gotthard Base Tunnel, the longest railway tunnel in the world
  • Lötschberg Base Tunnel
  • South-East belt Milan

A number of other projects are being realised and planned for the upcoming years:

  • 3rd track Emmerich-Oberhausen
  • Improvements in and to the ports of Antwerp and Zeebrugge
  • 3rd and 4th track between Gent and Brugge
  • 3rd track between Brugge and Dudzele
  • Detour Theemsweg (Harbour Line) to avoid the Calandbrug
  • First step in redesign Waalhaven freight yard for 740m trains
  • Siding Geldermalsen for 740m freight trains
  • 3rd track Geldermalsen aansluiting – Geldermalsen
  • 3rd and 4th track Karlsruhe–Basel
  • Completion of Lötschberg Base Tunnel
  • Ceneri base tunnel
