Rail works in Brussels to benefit from EU grant
The European Union will support a project to eliminate bottlenecks and improve the overall rail links between Brussels and the cities of Luxembourg and Strasbourg, as well as Brussels airport. The almost EUR 34 million funding for the project will come from the TEN-T programme. Once completed, the scheme will contribute to the realisation of the EuroCap-Rail on the Brussels-Luxembourg-Strasbourg railway axis (TEN-T priority project 28).
The project, which was selected for funding under the 2012 TEN-T multi-annual call, will support rail works in the Brussels districts of Watermael, Schuman, and Josaphat. The objective is to eliminate the rail bottlenecks in these areas, as well as in the district of Etterbeek. (ben)
