High-speed line delayed

The Netherlands’ long-awaited high-speed rail link to Brussels will only be partly operational by the end of this year, says transport minister Camiel Eurlings. Trains will run initially at 160 kmph. Passengers must wait until the end of 2008 before speeds of 300 kmph are possible.
