Mechelen, Spoorbypass Line L25N

The creation of this 3.2 km bypass also includes the construction of two additional tracks and two new platforms and facilitates a speed increase from 100 km/h to 160 km/h by straightening the track. As such the necessary increase in capacity is being realized. It is according to Infrabel the capstone of the Belgian high-speed network between the Netherlands and Brussels.

The bypass will also connect to the line Schaarbeek-Mechelen (via the median strip of the E19) and the Diabolo-rail connection.
