Development of the infrastructure
Modernization of stations and construction of new stations
- Dortmund central station is expected to provide accessible links between all modes of transport by 2025. The fourth of the eight platforms to be modernized went into operation at the end of May 2022.
- Construction work on the hall roof has begun at Berlin Ostbahnhof (East Station). Since May 2021, scaffolding platforms and a movable transport platform spanning the hall roof have been set up to renovate the entire roof membrane which is currently being replaced, install new skylights and renew the corrosion protection on all of the roof girders. Train traffic is largely unaffected and can continue as scheduled.
- The complete renovation of the Berlin Zoologischer Garten station is being implemented in several construction phases. In 2021, the areas of the first construction phase including the long-distance rail hall and the intermediate level to the tracks were recommissioned following renovation. Planning services are currently being carried out for further areas and construction phases. The measures in the S-Bahn (metro) hall that form part of the second construction phase have been ongoing since June 2022.
- In the Frankfurt am Main central station project (complete renovation of the B level and northern building), the first and second construction phases, the complete renovation of the feeder level below the station forecourt (B level) and the (supply) levels below, began in October 2020. Another construction phase, which will include changing the guidance systems for passengers, began in May 2022.
- The contracts for the main construction works to replace the platform and to rebuild the hall roof in Duisburg central station were awarded at the start of 2022. The structural implementation of the renovation work, which will run until 2028, is expected to start in August 2022 with the scheduled closure of the first platform.
