The station is being designed by Zwarts & Jansma Architects and BAM will start construction in the autumn, with the new station due for completion in 2016.
The Hague Centraal Station is both the start and end of the E-line or Erasmus line, the metro line that links Rotterdam and The Hague. It is part of the larger rail project Randstadrail.
BAM’s contract includes design and construction of the substructure, superstructure and the roof of the station. The substructure also includes the construction of an architectural canopy and platform floors, both in steel. Work on the superstructure includes railway construction, the construction of traction and energy facilities, noise barriers and the fitting-out of platforms. In addition, BAM is responsible for the mechanical and electrical installations and Randstadrail’s management systems, elevators and escalators, emergency stairs, lighting and fencing.
The city of the Hague and ProRail - responsible for the Dutch railway network - are working on thsproject together with public transport organisations RET, HTM and Haaglanden’s area council.
