Railway undertakings and other applicants can find all the information they need to access and use the Belgian railway infrastructure in the Infrabel network statement.
The network statement specifically covers the following topics, structured into 6 chapters:
- General information;
- Conditions for submitting capacity requests and network access conditions;
- Description of the railway infrastructure;
- Terms and rules for capacity allocation;
- Description of Infrabel's range of services, as well as those of other operators of service facilities linked to the network and its service providers
- Principles related to the charging of Infrabel's services.
Online network STATEMENTS
Infrabel keeps the network statement up-to-date and therefore adapts it on a regular basis. When doing so, the adaptations are always clearly indicated in the document. The "Modifications" document contains an overview of the sections that have been adapted in the main document and/or in the appendices.
This page contains two versions of the network statement: one version applies to the current timetable, the other relates to the future timetable.

Notice to operators of service facilities and services providers
Both the Belgian Law dated 30 August 2013 relating to the Rail Code, which is the transposition of Directive 2012/34/EU, and Implementing Regulation 2017/2177 impose on all operators of service facilities connected to the Infrabel railway network and/or the service providers in their service facilities, to provide information on the conditions and the charges for access to their installations as well as for the provision of services.
This information has to be included in the network statement of Infrabel for the timetable 2021, possibly by adding a link to the website (own website or common portal) where this information can be consulted freely.
In order to assist service facility operators and service providers in describing their facilities and/or services, the railway sector has developed a common template which reflects the obligations of the above-mentioned Implementing Regulation. This model can be used by operators and service providers, if they wish so. It is available in English, Dutch and French. The information must be published in two European Union languages.
- Common template for Service Facilities (ENG)
- Common template for Service Facilities (FR)
- Common template for Service Facilities (NL)
Infrabel invites operators of service facilities connected to the Belgian rail network and service providers to send their information to email@example.com before 1 June 2019.
Infrabel is not responsible for the information provided by operators and service providers.
