I heard that Zwolle Train station is being redone in August

I will be arriving in Schiphol and planned to take the train to Zwolle. Will this be a problem in August -- August 11 to be exact?

On their website I can only find disturbances because of this on August 4 and 5, so you should be ok. If not, they would put you on a bus.

I was in Zwolle this weekend and can confirm that the station is a dogs dinner at present.

As things stand this week trains from Schiphol stop at t'Harde and people are bussed from there into Zwolle. According to the NS website, that will still be the case this weekend. The alternative would normally be to take a train to Deventer then switch there to the Zwolle line. The issue is that they are also working on that line this weekend.

The bottom line is that you will have to bus it. Expect a delay 30-60 minutes.

Yes but not for Aug-11. Then the work should have been reduced to the May-June level. September is the 2nd dogs dinner level with again lots of buses!

Tnx,

I found this link:

treinreiziger.nl/actueel/treindienst_rondom_…

It says that next time the station is closing October 12 to 14, so you should be fine.
