Eurostar’s direct train to London may end in 2024, when major work on the renovation of Amsterdam’s central station will begin, Infrastructure Minister Vivianne Heijnen told MP.

Heinen said in a briefing that there was no room for Eurostar’s dedicated platform, including a lounge with security and passport control, and no easy alternative.

According to the minister, this situation is unacceptable. “Eurostar is important for international train journeys and for traveling from plane to short-distance trains,” she said.

Rail company NS and truck operator Pro Rail were urged to do “as much as possible” to solve this problem.

ProRail told local broadcaster AT5 that he is doing everything he can to find another location and hopes to find a solution by the end of the summer.

In the long run, Eurostar services and other international train traffic will move from the main station in the city center to Zydas station in the Zydas business district, which is also expanding.

Eurostar currently offers three direct flights a day to London and plans to introduce a fourth direct flight in September.
