UTRECHT – Dutch architects hired by the railway company NS have unveiled designs for new railway stations which incorporate applications well beyond the traditional mandate of the NS which was to move people from A to B. The new Utrecht station will be able to handle 360.000 people a day, a volume projected for the year 2020. Construction of the complex will take five years and carries a price tag of about $480 million in today’s value. The same architects also are working on the concept for The Hague station. This one includes a covered city square on which all types of transportation modes converge. Both include shopping facilities and various types of other services.
