Limburg transport plan nears launch

A light rail system is to form part of the Spartacus public transport plan which will be launched next year in the Flanders province of Limburg, De Standaard newspaper reports.

The plan is expected to be complete by 2014 and is aimed at providing high-quality, comfortable and rapid public transport within an integrated system. Elements include increasing regional train connections and services, and the provision of a fast-bus network.

The light rail element will be the first time such a system has been used in Belgium. The diesel-driven trains, otherwise known as “fast trams”, can achieve speeds of up to 120 kilometers an hour.
