Luxembourg's railways, the CFL, has announced that sections of rail lines 10, 50 and 60 will be closed during the months of October and November 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.
