Our network

The Belgian rail network covers approximately 3,595 km of tracks. It is the densest in the world and connects major capitals, large industrial centres and ports in Western Europe. Our rail network also offers connections with major European rail routes.

Freight transport

Infrabel continues to improve the quality of freight transport through investment. We have infrastructure on the main economic routes and have our sights set firmly on the development of other logistical economic centres.
