Contractor VolkerRail has begun work at Rotterdam Centraal station in preparation for the launch of new Eurostar services from London to Amsterdam, without transfers.

Work will take place to extend platform 1 by 4m, removing track 1 in the process, in preparation for larger passenger numbers. This work will run until March 26.
