BAM will start work in the spring of 2017 at the site, which is located east of Utrecht.
ProRail is completely renewing the station on behalf of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure & Environment, the Province of Utrecht and the municipalities of Utrechtse Heuvelrug and Zeist. The project includes the new rail station, as well as a redesign of the station area.
The level crossing of the N225 is currently a bottleneck in the area. The project includes the construction of an underpass under the tracks and alterations to the local road network. In addition, BAM will renew the rail infrastructure by constructing two additional tracks for through-train traffic.
BAM will also build a new bus station and underground bicycle parking.
ProRail aims for the new station to be energy neutral, through the use of energy-efficient systems and the installation of solar panels on the platform roofs.
