The construction of a new rail connection for the future Rail Terminal Greenport Venlo, the Netherlands has commenced. Infrastructure manager ProRail and contractor Dura Vermeer Railinfra will build a total of six kilometers of new track on behalf of the development company Greenport Venlo. This will lead to the future rail terminal in the south of the country, expected to be completed in 2020.
Rail Terminal Greenport Venlo is a project of the Cabooter Group, a Dutch logistics company based in Venlo, a logistics hub in the Netherlands. 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 may now commence the construction of the terminal, which 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.
