1.Antwerp, Central Station

- Description: The historic Central Station of Antwerp is undergoing the greatest extension since it's year of completion (1905).
-->3 new floors, supporting new railway lines, a shopping center,... A 3,8 km long new tunnel running under the city center to support the HST-line which will now run straight into the city's heart. A new second entrance. The square in front of the station will be redesigned, as well as the surrounding streets. Finally, the historic part is being restored to it's former glory.
- Cost: around 800 million euro
- Design: Jordi Farando (square)
- Current status: the tunnel was inaugurated in april 2007, the levels -1, -3 are open, level -2 will open at the end of this year, along with the second entrance. Restoration work will be complete in 2009.

The renders:

Believe it or not: the Russians have used Antwerp-Central as inspiration for a station in Moskou!

It's always exciting to get out of a train there. A real 19th century vibe if you're on the +1 level, and a slick modern look on the underground levels. Really cool. If you're ever around, you should definitely try to check it out!

Another Belgian station renovation (+ environment) project, not as spectacular as the Antwerp & Liège railway stations, but still nice: Saint Peter Station in Ghent:

Current situation:



Future situation:



An underground level will be added, there will be new infrastructure for public transport (bus + tram) and the platforms will be transformed. It will take a while to accomplish this, because all traffic will continue as usual during the construction.



The future bus station + urban developments.









The future rear side of the station. Today there hardly is anything more than a simple door and tram tunnel acces on this side of the station.





Two rather hazy renderings of the future hall underneath the platforms.



Urban development next to the station.

A thread exists about this project on the Belgian forum (in Dutch). More renderings and some photos that show the current state of this station can be found there: The Ghent-Saint-Peter Railwaystation thread on the .Be-forum

It's not as exciting but they're building a new station near to East Midlands Airport in the UK. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Mi...ailway_station

Well it has to be better than what is already there, it will bring a focus to the area opening out the square in front of the station. I had difficulty finding the station in 2005 this would make it much more obvious.

it can be any station that is new being built it can be platform expansions anything or rennovations things like that.

the new ansterdam station looks like the space mountain in Disney world, and the capes station looks huge wow.

keep it up and thanks for the pictures

the east midlands parkway is going to be great and a good addition as well because it will provide passenegers that live in that town to use it.
