Network statement

ProRail offers access to a safe and reliable rail network. Do you, as a train operating company, wish to use our rail infrastructure? Then please read our Network Statement, which contains relevant information for gaining track access.

Practical Information

The Network Statement not only contains practical, technical information about the railway network managed by ProRail, but also spells out the conditions you have to meet in order to access the network, including a sample  of a network access agreement between ProRail and a train operating company. The Network Statement also describes the relevant procedures to be followed in order to gain access to, as well as operate on, the Dutch rail network.

Services and Usage Fees

In the Network Statement, you will also find an overview of the services offered by ProRail; access to shunting tracks for instance, or placement of additional travel information panels at stations. The Network Statement also contains an overview of the usage fees we charge for those services.

Two parts

The Network Statement consists of two parts: the Network Statement Betuweroute (run by Keyrail) and Network Statement Combined Network, which covers the other main tracks. Together, these two parts make up the Network Statement, which article 58 of the Railway Act (Spoorwegwet) refers to. ProRail publishes a Network Statement every year, and issues amendments whenever necessary.
