EUR 1.076 billion in investments in Belgium 10-04-2012
Safety, punctuality and capacity are invariably the guiding principles behind our investments. While not immune from the impact of the economic and financial downturn, Infrabel in 2011 nonetheless successfully managed to keep its financial results under control. With EUR 1.076 billion, Infrabel unquestionably remains one of the major investors in Belgium.
Financial position in balance
Showing a positive result of EUR 13 million in our operational activities and a total operating result (ETB) of EUR -6 million, our financial position is kept wholly in balance and under control.
Infrabel also was not spared the shock of the financial crisis and recorded a decline in revenues as a result of, amongst other factors, lower volume of requested train paths in the freight sector. Nevertheless, thanks to proper planning and strict budget control, Infrabel continued its steadfast operations.
Investing in a well-functioning and safe railway network
As a key player in the field of mobility, Infrabel invested EUR 1.076 billion in the railway network. This budget was mainly composed of the investment allocation from the federal government, complemented by part of the company’s own surplus transferred from previous years.
Safety, punctuality and capacity are the top priorities that figure high on the lists of our investments. These strategic pillars interact and influence one another. Consequently, an investment in a given priority area will in turn benefit some other priority elsewhere.
