Two intercity trains a day to replace Fyra high-speed link to Brussels > safety + HS 1 2 - DutchNews.nl -

DutchNews.nl - Two intercity trains a day to replace Fyra high-speed link to Brussels: Two direct train services a day between The Hague and Brussels will partly replace the suspended Fyra high speed services, junior transport minister Wilma Mansveld has announced.
The Belgian and Dutch railways which operate the Fyra service say they hope to have solved the safety problems within three months.

Fyra services were suspended after three trains were damaged by snow and ice during the cold snap. The new service started in December, replacing slower intercity trains, was beset by delays and breakdowns since then.
