On 5 March, CFL multimodal subsidiary CFL terminals officially opened phase one of the new Bettembourg-Dudelange intermodal terminal. The terminal has now handled its first combined transport and rolling-road trains.

On 5 March, the new Bettembourg-Dudelange intermodal terminal part-opened for service as scheduled. The four tracks for receiving, loading and unloading combined transport trains are now operational, as is one of the two rolling-road transshipment platforms. “All of CFL terminals’ business has been successfully relocated to the new site thanks to the dedication and hard work of our staff, partners, and contractors. The commissioning of phase one will enable us to handle all our existing trains at the new terminal” explains CFL terminals Director Daniel Feyder.

HGV access and checks will continue at the old site until the new terminal’s infrastructure is completed (delivery is scheduled by the end of the first half of this year). Drivers will then be guided to the new terminal via an on-site connecting bridge. After loading and/or unloading their semi-trailers and containers, the HGVs will exit the new terminal in the direction of the Croix de Bettembourg interchange.
The old terminal site will partly be converted into a secure road haulage centre for customers using the Eurohub Sud (located in Bettembourg-Dudelange).
