Antwerp: The Liefkenshoek rail link – a Passage for Europe.
The statistics for the port of Antwerp are impressive: 38 ocean going vessels call at the port each day. These ships are serviced by 132 barges, 250 trains and literally thousands of trucks. The port’s hinterland extends deep into the continent- Sweden in the north to Italy and Greece in the south. The port now encompasses over 7,000 square km on the right bank of the river Schelde, and 5,000 of new construction of the left. Rail infrastructure has grown with the port – Antwerp Noord yard is the second largest in Europe. The rapidly growing left bank had been difficult to access by rail until 2015 when the largest rail infrastructure project since the completion of the high-speed network was put into service. The new line – the Liefkenshoek rail link – is a 16km double track electrified railway linking the new complexes west of the river with Noord classification yard. This, together with new freight yards and links to the mainlines has substantially cut wagon handling time, and helped B-Logistics launch new services to its hinterland. We look at the new link, the yards and the routes away from the port.
