Collaboration in the context of scheduled and unscheduled withdrawals

Track maintenance and retrofitting require train cancellations. ProRail and NS work together closely to minimise disruption and implementation costs. This is a huge challenge, especially given the combination of increased maintenance requirements, ambitions within the sector that require more infrastructure, increasing rail congestion, contractor capacity shortages and high cost pressure. The availability of alternative transport and capacity on alternative routes are also coming under increasing pressure.
Under the direction of ProRail, NS helped to streamline train withdrawals last year, for example during trackwork at Rotterdam, and trackwork at Amersfoort in 2024.
