The cross-border railway line between Mol in Belgium and Weert in the Netherlands is located on the Comprehensive Network and consists of a single track line which is not electrified. The line is used both by passenger and freight traffic, using diesel engines.

The Action aims to electrify railway line 19 and thereby improve accessibility for the Belgian province of Limburg and improve the cross-border railway connections between Belgium and The Netherlands.

It concerns the electrification of the Belgian section of the line between Mol and the Belgian-Dutch border in Hamont as well as the construction and equipment of three traction substations.
