New departure station for light rail connection between The Hague and Rotterdam

On Monday, August 22, 2016, the new departure station E-line The Hague (HSE), designed by ZJA Zwarts & Jansma Architects, will officially be opened. After a construction period of less than two years, the first metros will depart from the new station. The showpiece of the station is the canopy of the platforms, which consists of curved glass and steel. A covered walkway in the shape of an expressive awning connects the new departure station with The Hague Central Station.

The alderman of the City of The Hague, Tom de Bruijn, together with ProRail regional director Cees de Vries and representatives of MRDH, RET and HTM, will open the new light rail station in the morning. After the official inauguration, the station will become operational, and travellers can access the new station for the first time.
