Sterling Travel : News : General Strike in Belgium - 22 December 2011

General Strike in Belgium - 22 December 2011

 20 Dec 2011

Eurostar logoBelgian trade unions called for a general strike from 22:00 on Wednesday 21 December until 22:00 on Thursday 22 December.

As a result, the Belgian rail network will be closed and Eurostar plus onward connecting rail services will not be able to operate to or from Brussels during this period.

On Thursday 22 December, a number of special trains will operate between London and Lille Europe station only.

A limited replacement bus service will be in place between Lille Europe and Brussels Midi stations. However, demand is likely to be extremely high for these buses and we expect congestion at the stations as a result.

If travellers are booked to travel on Thursday 22 December (or on the 19:04 departure from London on Wednesday 21 December) Eurostar recommends that they exchange their ticket to travel either before or after Thursday 22 December. 

Eurostar will allow exchanges regardless of ticket conditions however will be subject to space availability on alternative services.
