Mayor Tommelein: “I don’t want extra trains to Ostend, but more SNCB staff and a reservation system”


SNCB says it will take a number of measures to prevent incidents such as Friday. A number of specialists will be conducting a site survey today. Spokesperson Bart Crols: “We are investigating ways to optimize the flow of travelers. We will also look at whether a reservation system can be introduced, but setting up such a thing cannot be done at 1, 2, 3.”

“We will in any case already place a large digital information screen outside the station to inform travelers about the state of traffic and the crowds on the trains. In addition, we will also strengthen communication via social media,” concludes Crols.
