Station-Area

Traffic jams at the level crossing, overcrowded bicycle parking and a shortage of parking spaces – important reasons to tackle the station area Driebergen-Zeist. The Hoofdstraat will soon redirect traffic through an underpass under the railway. The station area of ​​Driebergen-Zeist will be a compact public transport node, where all traffic flows smoothly.

Traffic problem solved. Soon the Hoofdstraat will be widened and will continue under the tracks. This makes traffic problems a thing of the past.  Not only will the railway crossingin the Odijkerweg will be lifted, but  here will soon also be a new bus station and a new parking garage with approximately 600 parking spaces. Travelling by bike?. A bicycle parking facility will be located underneath the station where cyclists can park their bicycles in a dry and secure space. In addition, the cyclists get their own cycling route which allows them to safely cross the station area.

This new arrangement will see the station square continuing underneath the tracks.That means: no more unsafe situations where pedestrians run across the track to catch their train. In addition, longitudinal intercity trains will use the outermost tracks as much as possible, meaning they will no longer rush past the waiting travellers. In the middle comes a wide platform where only the sprinters stop. And intercity trains just pick up the slow trains thanks to a new railway track. At the moment parking at the station is a challenge due to lack of space. NS Stations will soon construct a new parking garage with 600 parking spaces near station Driebergen-Zeist.  The parking garage is expected to be put into use in October 2017. Being able to park at the station easily, safely, dry and close to your car contributes to more use of the train.

As far as possible, we seek to give used materials a new purpose within the project.  For example, the concrete that was released during the demolition of the “Staatsbosbeheergebouw” was used as a foundation for the temporary P + R on the A12.  The trees around the station are re-planted or compensated for where possible by planting new trees. The Driebergen-Zeist station is also an important entrance to the National Park Utrechtse Heuvelrug and of ‘De Stichtse Lustwarande’. ProRail is working on the Driebergen-Zeist station on behalf of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, the Province of Utrecht, the municipalities of Utrechtse Heuvelrug and Zeist. In 2017 the construction was started, and in 2021 the station will be completely renewed.
