Amsterdam – Passengers travelling on the high-speed trains running between Amsterdam and Rotterdam will have to take regular trains for the next two days as engineers are checking for possible faults in the safety system.

Infrastructure supervisor ProRail is suspending services for the high-speed train services after receiving error messages from the high-speed rail link system.

On Thursday and Friday, people travelling by train between the Dutch capital and Rotterdam are advised to use the regular services instead, which take 20 minutes longer.

High-speed services between the two major cities began on 7 September, after years of building and testing.
