With many employees absent due to illness or quarantine, NMBS is forced to temporarily adjust the train’s offer from January 26. In Forrest, the Audi plant will be closed for a week due to the massive loss of staff.
“Due to the development of the pandemic, NMBS is currently facing employees who are absent due to illness or are being quarantined at home,” the railway company said. As a result, the train offer will be temporarily adjusted from January 26: nearly seven percent of the train offer will be cancelled.
