The topic is maybe too broad - the list would be endless. In general, it's an interesting topic, but maybe better to focus in this single thread on the US?

OK let me start................................small

My hometown Alphen aan den Rijn in the Netherlands, the whole area around the station is being developed with a new station for the Intercity trains and for the RijnGouwelijn Lightrail project. Plus there will be a new bus station, offices and a hotel.

The old station building, that was demolished recently.




And this is how it's going to be, most of the buildings don't have a final design yet.

Wind tunnel test:



The round structure is for bicycles:

Yup, well the above is for Glasgow International Airport.

Glasgow Prestwick Airport already has its own train station with trains every 30 minutes to Glasgow Central Station.

A new Travel Interchange was opened earlier this year in my old home town in the UK.

The Rail Station buildings themselves were built in the late 1990's but have been upgraded and integrated to the bus station which was completely rebuilt and the entire thing has had a bit of a refurbishment.

www.btint.co.uk Barnsley Interchange (not many images here)

They are using it as an impetus to redevelop the whole town,

Fairfield Metro Center in Fairfield, CT for Metro North - will also include an office park and a Hilton


Also there's a proposal to build a Metro-North station in West Haven, CT


In the future, Moynihan Station will probably replace Penn Station in Manhattan

It will be built in what is currently the main post office

Also in New York City, they're building a new station by which Metro-North will serve the New Yankee Stadium
