This multimodal region has road links to Eindhoven (A67), Nijmegen and Maastricht (A73), Mönchengladbach (A74 / BAB61) and Duisburg (BAB40) and excellent rail (Brabant route) and water links (river Maas). The largest inland rail terminal in the Netherlands is currently under construction at Trade Port North.
