Delayed trains caused by computer problems can be expected for one more year, according ProRail, the authority responsible for railway infrastructure. This transpired during a hearing in Parliament on Thursday. ProRail is currently modernising its computer system; in 2008 all systems will be duplicated, which will reduce the probability of problems drastically.
Members of parliament pleaded to speed up the work, to avoid problems sooner. According to ProRail, this is not possible. Member of parliament S. said "it is our common task to solve these problems as soon as possible. If necessary, more money or manpower must be dedicated to ProRail."
