Changed routes and departure times
The NMBS regional train Roosendaal - Antwerpen will no longer travel to Lokeren in the weekend, and will also not continue on to Puurs. During the week, the departure time will change by approximately 30 minutes.
Faster ICE during off-peak hours
The travel time for the ICE Amsterdam - Keulen - Frankfurt between Amsterdam Centraal and Utrecht Centraal will be 3 minutes shorter during off-peak hours. The total travel time of the ICE from Germany to Amsterdam Centraal will remain the same for both rush hour and off-peak journeys.
Engineering works in Germany
In 2018, large-scale engineering work is starting on the German part of the ICE Amsterdam - Keulen - Frankfurt. For this reason, the ICE will regularly be diverted and take longer.
Eurostar will be opening a connection between Amsterdam and London in 2018. This train will run twice a day in both directions and will stop in Rotterdam Centraal and Brussel-Zuid.
