    Mercredi dernier la ministre fédérale des Transports, Isabelle Durant, s'est rendue à Anvers pour prendre contact avec l'administration portuaire afin d'y procéder à un tour d'horizon.

De plus, la ministre a assuré ses interlocuteurs de son soutien total dans l'affaire de la réactivation du Rhin d'Acier, qu'elle manifestera lors de la prochaine rencontre ministérielle du 6 octobre, avec les homologues allemand et néerlandais. I. Durant fera un plaidoyer pour une restauration rapide de cette liaison ferroviaire.
