Long queues for Eurostar at Gare du Midi

Eurostar trains experienced significant delays on Sunday morning and afternoon at  Gare du Midi station due to longer than expected maintenance work on two trains, the company spokeswoman said. On Twitter, dissatisfied travellers shared photos of the long queues at the station.

Due to the delay in maintenance work, the first two trains of the day experienced “significant delays”, causing long queues, explained spokeswoman Stefanie Van Mierlo. One of the two trains, scheduled for 8:52 am, did not leave the station until around 1 pm.

The disruptions in Brussels also caused delays at other stations throughout the day. However, from today (Monday) things have returned to normal.
