Key Project

Massification at Denderleeuw

Project owner: Infrabel


Construction period: August 2020


Project realised by: MOBIX

Renovation of the railway infrastructure

One of the largest projects in Belgian railway history was realized by MOBIX on the railway lines 50 and 50C, between Denderleeuw and Essene-Lombeek, from the 1st to the 24th August 2020. The Track, Catenary and Signalling teams joined forces in order to successfully complete the total renewal of infrastructure and tracks: replacement of 17,500 tonnes of ballast, 10,000 railway sleepers, 14 switching points and 9 km of overhead contact lines. All this was achieved in just 23 days of work, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in very difficult conditions due to the heatwave that prevailed during this period.
