Luxembourg's railways, the CFL, has announced that two lines in the Grand Duchy will be closed over Whit / Pentecost, from Saturday 25 May to Sunday 2 June 2019.

The works on the railway lines are to enable the CFL to maintain, modernise and extend the rail network, which it does continuously. These railway infrastructure works require the temporary closure of certain sections of lines in order to enable their rapid and safe operation.

During the holidays of Pentecost in Luxembourg, from 25 May to 2 June, the CFL will block the section between Esch-sur-Alzette and Pétange on Line 60 (Luxembourg - Esch-sur-Alzette - Pétange - Rodange).

On the week-ends of 25 to 26 May and 1 to 2 June, the section of Lines 10 between Ettelbruck and Diekirch will be closed.

People with reduced mobility wishing to board replacement buses should contact the CFL before starting their journey via tel.: 4990-3737 or via e-mail: at least one hour in advance for national traffic and 48 hours in advance for international traffic.
