On Sunday 9 December 2018 the first sprinter train stopped at Lansingerland-Zoetermeer Station, a new station on the railway between Gouda and The Hague in The Netherlands. Train enthusiasts got up early to make the first trip to the new station. In the spring of 2019, the entire public transport hub will be completed. By then also a light rail and three fast bus lines will stop at the station.
Meanwhile, the construction work continues. On the viaduct, reaching over the A12 highway and the railway, a green avenue with a light rail stop are being realized. The contours of these are already visible, including the ornate concrete fencing with a pattern of branches. “These are very special,” says Jeroen van Schooten in an interview with local newspaper Hart van Lansingerland. “The highest ones are up to 7.5 meters high. Concrete Valley had to experiment to make them as we wanted. Part of it is already visible from the highway. Our team had a lot of fun making this beautiful fencing!”
