Everything in readiness for salvage derailed metro train Spijkenisse

The ditch has been filled in, the plates have been laid down and the cranes have arrived. In Spijkenisse, everything was prepared on Monday evening to salvage the metro train that passed through a buffer and is currently dangling meters above the ground on a work of art. That job starts on Tuesday morning around 08:00.

On Monday evening, curious people come and go at metro station De Akkers. “I wanted to come and have a look. If you see it that way, it looks like a scene from a movie,” says a woman while looking meters up. “It’s bizarre.”

The accident happened just after midnight. Local residents spoke of a gigantic bang. How that could have happened is not yet known. The aircraft landed on a work of art surrounded by water.

This complicates the recovery, a spokesperson for the Rotterdam-Rijnmond Safety Region said earlier. The ditch has now been filled in and road plates have been placed to allow access to the cranes.

Two homes in the immediate vicinity will be evacuated on Tuesday morning, because they are located within the turning circle that the cranes must be able to make. Extra ballast was attached to the cranes on Monday evening to prevent them from falling over when the metro was hoisted. In the night from Monday to Tuesday, it is monitored whether the metro train remains stable.
