Better public transport connections
Railways are a vital part of the public transport network. Providing more services in the future means upgrading and expanding the tracks, and they are already heavily used. It also means optimising connections to other types of transport.
The number of train passengers is increasing each year. And more goods are being transported by rail too. To accommodate this growth, more trains are needed on the tracks. But for these trains to travel safely and efficiently, the railway network must first be improved.
It is vital for the Dutch economy that all regions of the Netherlands are easily accessible. The government has proposed a whole range of measures to ensure reliable, safe and sustainable public transport, so access can be guaranteed.
Good public transport connections
