Infrabel is an autonomous public enterprise which manages the Belgian railway infrastructure and ensures the railway network continues to grow in order to meet the transport needs of its customers and end-users. We maintain, renew and build railway infrastructure wherever it is needed: tracks, catenaries, tunnels, bridges, level crossings, signalling systems, etc. We are also responsible for the IT systems and telecommunication networks needed for the safe and smooth operation of the railway network.
Our company is also in charge of traffic control for all passenger and freight trains operating throughout Belgium. Our signal boxes control the signalling system alongside the tracks, guiding each train to its destination safely and on time. By paying an infrastructure fee, any railway company is allowed to use our railway network, providing they possess the necessary certification. In collaboration with the railway operators we aim to achieve safe and punctual passenger and freight railway transport.
