Netherlands-Germany Rail Project Approved

The German government has signed a financial deal for the construction of a third rail line between Emmerich and Oberhausen in the nation’s North Rhine-Westphalia state.

The Port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands said the rail line is an important milestone in the extension of the Betuwerourte, a freight railway from Rotterdam to Germany, because it will solve a bottleneck for freight trains on the route.


According to the current schedule, the third rail line should be completed in 2022.
