Fewer intercity trains will run between The Hague and Leiden until at least 11 p.m. due to a switch failure. The Dutch Railways previously assumed that the problem would be solved by 6 p.m. on Monday, but that did not work out.
Travelers between Leiden and The Hague can use local trains, but must take into account a longer travel time. They are also advised to take the bus.
Train traffic around Leiden Central was disrupted on Monday due to a crack in a point of a switch. All train traffic in the Randstad is affected by this, because Leiden is an important junction on the railways.
ProRail reports that no train traffic is possible between Leiden and Hoofddorp until at least 23.30. Stop buses are used on this route.
Travelers who nevertheless have to take the train can use the route between Schiphol and Rotterdam. That’s why it’s extra busy there. This also applies to the route between Amsterdam and Lelystad.
