LPF is concerned about railroad risks

Political party LPF (List Pim Fortuyn) wants to know how big the risk is of having trains with toxins run through Eindhoven.

LPF has put the issue on the official city council’s agenda, after the train accident in the Belgian town of Wetteren.The party is worried, because the maximum speed of trains approaching the train station has been increased from 40 to 60 kilometres per hour. LPF wants to know if this also applies to freight trains and if there might be a reason to adjust this speed limit now that the train station is being renovated.LPF also wants an answer to the question on how many near accidents there have been in the past ten years and if trains with inflammable or explosive substances were involved.Finally, LPF wonders whether there is a special emergency plan for train accidents in the ‘Safety Region Brabant Zuid Oost’, for major disasters like the one in Belgium.
