New Deputy Minister defines New Problems in Rail Infrastructure

New deputy Minister Sharon Dijksma (Labour) has found new problems in the ProRail infrastructure company, which receives an annual subsidy of about 1.2 million Euro from the government.  She says that the company is unable to control costs of big projects such as station renovations.  The construction of new tracks at the Utrecht Central station will go 80 million Euro over budget. Ongoing maintenance of railways is delayed on a regular basis.  This year between 100 and 160 million Euro was budgeted for this purpose and was not used.
