Collaboration in the context of scheduled and unscheduled withdrawals

Large sections of rail are due for replacement over the next few years. Together with ProRail, we will make every effort to minimise inconvenience for passengers. In 2020, several projects could not go ahead or had to be modified. Even so, the timing was right given the basic timetable in force and the lower than usual passenger numbers, which meant that relatively few passengers were inconvenienced. The Geldermalsen area saw a 38-day withdrawal of track sections in 2020. In addition, there were several major disruptions in 2020, such as the Willemspoortunnel outage at the end of January and a storm during the night from 9 to 10 February that caused malfunctions in overhead contact lines. These events prompted thorough consultation with ProRail and stakeholders on measures to ensure reliable and safe transport for our passengers. In the second half of 2020, withdrawal figures were more stable than in the first half.
