Construction works: autumn 2018

construction works/projects
// 9 October 2018

Traditionally, CFL regroups construction works to make the best use of closed railyway networks. In autumn and during the All Saints holidays, extensive modernisation and maintenance measures are going to be carried out on various sections of the railway network. In order to keep the disruptions to a minimum, some work is also done at night. Residents affected by this construction work will be informed individually in detail.

In order to keep on offering quality services to our customers, the CFL will carry on with maintenance, modernisation and extension works on the Luxembourgish railway network. These railway infrastructure works require the closure of certain railway segments in order to allow that these can be performed safely and swiftly.
