New high-speed rail link to Brussels Airport inaugurated tomorrow
The project involves completing a rail section linking Brussels Zaventem Airport with the existing Brussels-Antwerp-Amsterdam and Paris-Brussels-Köln-Amsterdam-London high-speed rail networks, also known as TEN-T Priority Project 2.
The airport used to be only accessible by a dead-end railway station served by local and regional trains, or by very busy road. The completion of the link to Brussels Airport further enhances Europe's network of high-speed railway lines and the creation of an interoperable and continuous rail network. It will also help reduce the isolation of the airport by improving accessibility and reducing congestion.
The European Commission and the TEN-T EA, which have followed the project from start to finish, welcome tomorrows inauguration as a key step in the advancement of European high-speed railways and European mobility as a whole.
