Three new switches will be installed this week on the tracks that will eventually lead to the new rail terminal Greenport Venlo, in the Netherlands. The works are carried out by infrastructure manager ProRail and Dura Vermeer Railinfra, which has been awarded the construction contract of the new railway connection. In addition to the switches the overhead line will be adjusted. The team will be on the spot until Sunday.
The works are carried out on behalf of the development company Greenport Venlo. It is only the cornerstones of six kilometers of new track that will lead to the new rail terminal of Cabooter Group. In the course of 2020 rail freight operators will be able to load and unload their containers at this brand new terminal.
The arrival of the rail terminal is important for the economic development of the Greenport Venlo business park. On the border with Germany, the location plays an important role in opening up the hinterland connection of the port of Rotterdam. An increasing number of companies are getting established in this region, which means that the handling of goods is to increase. A railway connection makes the area extra attractive, the parties argue.
Dura Vermeer Railinfra was awarded the contract end of 2017. The company was given the green light in November last year. The terminal will be located between the N295 and the Grubbenvorsterweg south of the track. The terminal will be accessible from both east and west for trains with a maximum length of 750 metres. Trains from the west can turn to the rail terminal via a switch. For trains from the east there will be a track between the two main tracks where they can wait to cross safely.
