    Train traffic between Brussels and Antwerp is back to normal after a power cut on Thursday morning halved train traffic during peak rush hour.

    Railway infrastructure company Infrabel said that no disruptions were expected for the evening rush hour, according to reports, after warning that the incident risked impacting trains in the afternoon.

    Only two out of the four rail tracks were open on Thursday morning due to an extensive power outage, leading to several delays and cancellations.

    The power outage was caused after a high-tension cable was damaged during works between the cities of Mechelen and Vilvoorde.
