    Rails without (passenger) trains

    by Veghel Updated Apr 27, 2006
    Rails without trains

    In earlier days, Veghel was an important place for train passengers, as the most important route from the West of The Netherlands (e.g. Rotterdam) to Germany was via Veghel. In the late nineteenseventies, the last passenger trains drove through Veghel. Nowadays, the railway is used for (infrequent) transport of goods, mainly bulk animal food. There are some plans to re-open the part of the track from Boxtel via Schijndel and Veghel to Uden. The proposed new way of exploitation is a so-called light rail. In Boxtel, there is a connection to the national railways. Although some people are doing their very best, it is highly unlikely (in my opinion) that their plans will succeed.

    The highway A50 openend in 2004 and is one of the 3 main north-south highways in The Netherlands. The highway is a real boost for the local economy. It only takes 15 minutes to drive from Veghel to Eindhoven, and Eindhoven Airport is only 20 minutes away.
