The renovated The Hague Central station is now ready. On Monday 1 February 2016, state secretary Sharon Dijksma from Infrastructure and the Environment officially opened the station. Together with Jozias Van Aartsen, Mayor of The Hague, and an as yet unknown passenger. Strukton was commissioned by ProRail to transform The Hague Central Station into a modern Public Transport Terminal.

Strukton built the new Public Transport Terminal in several phases. Throughout the construction period, the station remained open. During the day, the level of work was minimal. Most of the work was done at night. Every night, once the last train had departed, the workplace was set up. We also ensured that everything was cleared away at the end of the work period so that passengers could navigate the station safely the next morning.  

Glass roof
To install the special glass roof, with the so-called lozenges, a temporary work platform was erected in the hall. Under the platform, passengers could continue to use the station. This glass roof makes the Public Transport Terminal very light and spacious. And very photogenic. This was apparent from the many entries to the ProRail photo competition (see photo with this article).
