19 November 2007, THE HAGUE – Far more trains could be running on the tracks than assumed until now. 12 trains per hour currently operate on the busiest stretches of the network, but a series of clever adjustments could increase that number to about 30 trains per hour on the same route before 2012. The timetable will then be able to be scrapped in the Randstad, says rail infrastructure manager ProRail in a response to the Action plan for Rails that Transport Minister Camiel Eurlings presented at The Hague

THE HAGUE – Far more trains could be running on the tracks than assumed until now. 12 trains per hour currently operate on the busiest stretches of the network, but a series of clever adjustments could increase that number to about 30 trains per hour on the same route before 2012.
 
The timetable will then be able to be scrapped in the Randstad, says rail infrastructure manager ProRail in a response to the Action plan for Rails that Transport Minister Camiel Eurlings presented at The Hague's Central Station on Monday.
