Traffic disruptions and alterations

Eurostar terminal at Brussels-Midi moves temporarily as from 17 August 2016

For your comfort and security, refurbishment works are being carried out at the Eurostar terminal at Brussels-Midi station. These works will start from Wednesday 17 August for a duration of 6 months.

For the entire duration of these works, Eurostar passengers to the UK will check-in through a temporary Eurostar terminal located next to the "Proximus" shop at the Galerie du Midi, alongside Place Horta.

Spot the temporary Eurostar terminal on the station map (PDF) >

Because of possible queues due to this new temporary layout, passengers from Brussels-Midi are advised to check-in 1 hour before departure.

Eurostar passengers to Lille will still check-in at the Intra-Schengen terminal located on the balcony (1st floor) alongside Place Horta.

Reinforced security measures at Thalys stations in France

According to the request by the French government, security gates have been installed on the Thalys platforms at Paris Nord station and in Hall 1 at Lille Europe station.

Thalys passengers are invited, especially if they have luggage, to arrive at the platform around 20 minutes before departure in order to pass through the gates and have their luggage scanned without rush. In case of identity controls by the national authorities, passengers are kindly requested to present a valid ID. Please notice that due to enhanced security measures, Thalys 9975 and 9995 departing from Lille will leave a few minutes earlier than initially scheduled (Thalys 9975 will depart from Lille Europe at 19:07 instead of 19:09, and  Thalys 9995 will depart from Lille Europe at 21:04 instead of 21:07).
