Between Saturday 25 February and Sunday 4 March 2012, work will be carried on the railway between:

  • Groningen and Assen
  • Groningen, Bad Nieuweschans and Leer

No trains will be running as a result – NS and Arriva will be providing transportation by bus. Passengers should expect travel times that are up to 30-45 minutes longer, depending on their destination.


NS will deploy a fast shuttle service by bus between Assen and Groningen,  with buses 4 times an hour, stopping only at the Transferium in Haren. Passengers to and from the Haren railway station will also be provided a shuttle service between the station and the Transferium.
