Den Haag HS
Den Haag Hollands Spoor station is getting a new entrance with shops and a square on the Laakhaven side. As part of this project, the existing passenger route is being extended to the Laakzijde.
In addition to the station entrance and the passenger route, a new bicycle storage area for 2,500 bicycles is being constructed on the roof of the new entrance. NS Stations will furnish and operate the new shops, and the municipality is going to refurbish the square. Next to the new entrance on the Laakzijde, the municipality is working on a new station square, with high quality stops for the tram. The connection to the city centre for cyclists and pedestrians is also being upgraded.
The project is made up of three phases:
- Construction preparations with the demolition of the parking area next to the Globe, the bicycle storage facility next to the bicycle tunnel and the kiss & ride on the Laakzijde (until June 2017)
- Extension of the passenger route and construction of shops and new bicycle storage facilities (July 2017- December 2018)
- Construction of a new station square on the Laakzijde (January – March 2019) )
The City of The Hague is contracting the construction, that is being carried out by the contractor Heijmans. ProRail and NS Stations are making financial contributions, temporarily making premises available and ensuring that train traffic is stopped when necessary.
