JOINT HST WORKSHOP IN UTRECHT/NL IN NOVEMBER

The international workshop focused on the question what an integrated station might look like and how such an interchange can be achieved considering the different local environments and basic conditions in the different partner countries.

Both HST projects (HSTconnect and HST4i) have organised a joint workshop in Utrecht in order to share knowledge, exchange experience and learn from Best Practice Examples, speeches and contributions of external experts from different fields of expertise such as architectural design, town planning, transport and infrastructure.

The construction of the new Public Transport Terminal in Utrecht is expected to start in 2006 and will be completed in 2010. It will be financed by the Dutch government by approximately 250 mio.
