Schuman-Josaphat Rail Link in Brussels/B

The tunnel under construction is part of the extended Schuman-Josaphat S-Bahn network around Brussels/B. This network is intended to improve the train frequencies and speeds on the rail lines up to 30 km around Brussels without reducing the quality of mainline connections. The following report examines work on the tunnel in closer detail.

The tunnel under construction is part of the extended Schuman-Josaphat S-Bahn network around Brussels/B. This network is intended to improve the train frequencies and speeds on the rail lines up to 30 km around Brussels without reducing the quality of mainline connections (Fig. 1). Based on current circumstances and probable future developments, it is essential to develop transport systems, which are a genuine alternative to cars. These future public transportation systems are designed to reduce motoring in the European metropolis and thus ward off the threat posed by traffic congestion.
