ProRail: No LPG leak from derailed Dutch wagons

Dutch rail infrastructure manager ProRail confirmed there were no leakages caused by the derailment of two freight wagons containing Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) last Monday night (November 27) in the Zeeland province of The Netherlands.


The Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate (ILT – Inspectie Leefomgeving en Transport) carried out an inspection of the area where the incident occurred, at Nieuwdorp in the municipality of Borsele, around 11pm. ProRail says the wagons involved are developed in such a way that they are strong enough to withstand incidents of this type  The wagons were recovered the following evening and further information about how the incident occurred will be provided by the ILT at a later date.
