Thursday September 18th, the construction phase of the cepezed-designed renovation and conversion of the Tilburg trainstation has commenced. Through use of a video camera, green screen and digital artist impressions, travelers and visitors of the kick off ceremony could already imagine themselves in the fully renewed station building.
Important components of the plan are the renewed station hall and a wide traverse provided with a transfer zone and shopping as well as catering facilities at both sides. The traverse connect the north and south side of the station building and is fit for the strongly increasing number of travelers.
The traverse will be built just outside the station and will eventually be slid into its final position. The passage will be ready for use by the end of 2015. The overall completion of the renewed train station is planned for 2016.
