New delay for Hoekse Lijn metro

http://www.treinreiziger.nl/ombouw-h...2018-afgerond/

Even if you thought it couldn't get worse than the doubled time for rebuilding the Hoekse Lijn scheduled for February 2018, then it seems the next delay is freaking everybody in Vlaardingen, Maassluis and Hoek van Holland (Hook of Holland) out. Tonight the Rotterdam city council will be informed and it seems that this rebuild will take double the time of the already-doubled time. So not 5, not 10, but 20 months being forced to take the bus.
Initially, the soil seemed to be unstable, now signalling gives another hit.

The source mentions the Hofpleinlijn (current Metro E) and how that line had problems, however, if you noticed, delays on that reconstruction were less than 15 months (the whole reconstruction took 5 months which was a delay of 2 months, a part of the line was out of service for 9 further months after derailments).

Relieving the pressure on Dutch housing market: we need more apartments and taller apartment buildings, no single-family dwellings anymore!

Prohibit the construction of new single-family dwellings without stacking apartments in Amsterdam (A10), Rotterdam (motorway ring), The Hague, Utrecht (outer ring), Eindhoven (ring), Tilburg (ringbanen) and Groningen (provincial ring)!

And prohibit the use of agricultural land for new dwellings!
