Since the summer of 2016, passengers have enjoyed a spacious, light station thoroughfare with new escalators and lifts to all platforms. In 2017, more renovation work will be carried out.
The national monument, Eindhoven station, was opened in 1956. In its current form, the station will not be able to handle the expected 115,000 passengers per day that will visit by 2020. That is why it is being renovated.
Work in 2017
In 2017, further work will be done on the light installation artwork by Daan Roosegaarde in the old tunnel. The old tunnel is not a transit route for passengers, and will be closed off with glass waiting areas. Seating will be installed on both sides so that passengers can enjoy their wait, and perhaps drink a cup of coffee or read a newspaper. Both station concourses are also being refurbished. The north concourse is being given the same style as the new station thoroughfare. The south concourse is being renovated in a manner true to the architect's original design. That means that the concourse will be made more spacious by shifting the Ticket & Service and the GWK Travelex Eindhoven desks backwards.
The work will take nearly a year, so the renewed Eindhoven station will be ready by the end of 2017. More information at https://www.facebook.com/stationehv
Since the summer of 2016, visitors to the station have enjoyed a spacious, light station thoroughfare with new escalators and lifts to all platforms. The wide passageway and plentiful assortment of shops make this thoroughfare ready for the growing number of passengers in the future. The old tunnel is also partially available, with new Terrazzo floors, including reconstructions of mosaic artworks, restored original tiles on the walls and old-fashioned lighting installations.
