ELST – Porters to carry bags, free radios, and plenty of information: train travellers who face delays near Elst from 30 July through 16 August will receive these as compensation from the Nederlandse Spoorwegen, rail management company ProRail and transport firm Syntus, an NS spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

In the two-and-a-half weeks beginning on Saturday, the tracks around the town in Gelderland will see the longest-ever track maintenance works.

During that time, no trains will run between Arnhem, Nijmegen and Tiel because of works near Elst and Kesteren to the west.

ProRail will distribute brochures with information on the nature and duration of the works on rail replacement buses. Syntus and the NS have already distributed information to travellers.

Passengers will face delays of about half an hour, the NS said.

Riders on the route between The Hague and Utrecht, where long maintenance works are also taking place, will get no special service.
