Why there will be no trains to Utrecht
The train traffic to Utrecht has been disrupted for a week due to work on the track. During that period ProRail will work day and night on the track doubling between Utrecht Central and Utrecht Leidsche Rijn. The doubling of the track is a big project and should ensure fewer delays and shorter travel times.
An important component for this reconstruction was the construction of the new railway bridge over the Amsterdam-Rhine Canal. In November 2017, the railway bridge was inserted between the two existing bridges.
