If it is up to the province of North-Brabant, an intercity connection between Eindhoven and Brussels will be created. The train will run via Breda and Antwerp.
The province insisted upon this idea during meetings with the NS (Dutch railways) and the government. A good and fast train connection between Eindhoven and Belgium is important for Eindhoven as technological and innovative top region. Deputy Van Heugten also thinks that many people will leave the car at home if they can take the intercity.The train between Eindhoven and Brussels would run eight times a day.
