Extension of Luxembourg Station
More capacity for the central part of the Luxembourg rail network.
- Start date : 2018
- End date : 2024
- Location : Luxembourg Station
The extension of the Luxembourg Station is all the more important in the context of the introduction of transversal lines, such as for the Troisvierges - Rodange route. It is essentialvto increase the capacity of the Luxembourg Station in order to create an appropriate exchange hub.
The key elements of the extension project are the following:
the construction of two additional platforms. The four additional tracks will increase the reception capacity of the station.
development of switch zones on both sides of the Luxembourg Station. The creation of fixed routes, reducing the crossings of the different lines, will contribute to an increase in robustness of the schedule.
the addition of a second entrance / exit north of the storage and maintenance center. A larger number of trains may be received at the station without crossing trains of the main lines.
the construction of Platforms V and VI will make it possible to connect to the existing platform 11 and reach the new platforms 12, 13 and 14. These new platforms will have a maximum width of 10 meters and a length of 311 meters (platform V) and 253 meters (platform VI) respectively. The new platforms are designed in accordance with the requirements of the technical specification for interoperability for persons with reduced mobility. The south and north underpass will be extended while maintaining the same dimensions and architectural concepts.
a new pedestrian bridge that crosses the tracks and connects the Station to the Bonnevoie district will replace the existing bridge and connect it to the pedestrian bridge of the city of Luxembourg on the side of the Bonnevoie bypass.
As the end of the extension project is scheduled for 2024, the commissioning of the Luxembourg Station in its new form will be gradual.
