Traffic disruptions and alterations

Increased security at all Eurostar stations: check-in 60 minutes before departure

Security has been increased in all Eurostar stations. Security and immigration checks are therefore taking longer than usual and Eurostar passengers are advised to check in 60 minutes before departure at all stations.

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).
