Rotterdam Port railway line to be out of action  for 144 hours in Nov. 


The Port of Rotterdam has informed that the Port Railway Line will be closed between November 2 and 8, 2021. The project organisation needs this time to put the Theemsweg Route into operation. Freight trains will run on it again from November 8. The official opening of the Theemsweg Route will take place on November 15, said a release. 


During the period that large parts of the Dutch economy were crippled by the pandemic, it was business as usual for the Port of Rotterdam. No better example of this can be seen than on the Theemsweg, whose landscape is now dominated by a four-kilometre-long viaduct. If everything goes according to plan during the final month, the new Port Railway Line will be completed on schedule – a remarkable feat given the project’s complexity. The new section of railway is in the Botlek, in the heart of Europe’s largest petrochemical complex, the release added.
