ProRail and Infrabel, the Dutch and Belgian rail infrastructure managers will further collaborate with North Sea Port to increase rail freight between the two countries and start a follow-up study this year. The cooperation aims at growing the volumes moved by rail between Ghent in Belgium and Terneuzen in the Netherlands. The study was carried out in order to solve the current bottlenecks identified by North Sea Port (NSP), Infrabel, and ProRail. The first bottleneck is the increasing demand for rail transport that cannot be supported by the existing infrastructure. The second one is that low rail capacity represents an obstacle to the modal shift from road to rail.
