Harderwijk railway station building and surrounding area under construction
GROUP A is responsible for the design including the station building, the bicycle park, the tunnel and public spaces. The station building and the tunnel expected to be finished in the second half of 2016. The bicycle park will be finished autumn 2015.
The entire area around the Harderwijk railway station is set to be overhauled to prepare for the future. A new tunnel will connect motorists, cyclists and pedestrians, as well as providing access to the railway platforms. The current railway station building will be replaced with a new building. The tunnel entrance will be flanked by the station building and bicycle park, while the square in front will link all station-related uses and services. The new railway station building with its conspicuous awnings and central waiting area will aligns with both the ground and tunnel level, creating an elegant link. The wide and low stairs, designed in warm and attractive natural stone, further enhances its aesthetic appeal.
