Work has started at Hollands Spoor station

Published: 3 July 2017Modified: 7 August 2017

Work has begun on renewing the square (Stationsplein) in front of the Hollands Spoor train station. As a result of the project the tram stops will temporarily not be in use as of 1 July and the trams will be diverted. To make it easier for you, you can download the 'Rondom Hollands Spoor' app with the latest information about the project.

The first phase of the project is to modernise the sewer pipes. The following phase will be to replace the tram rails, build the tram stops with a rooftop and to carry out a new design for the Stationsplein. This will be a major project and trams will therefore be diverted for a long period. 

The contractors, HTM, NS and the municipality will do everything they can to limit the inconvenience as much as possible.

Tram and bus diversions

The trams will not operate on the Stationsplein from 1 July to 18 December. The buses will also have other stops:

  • Temporary stops have been made on the Rijswijkseplein for lines 1, 9, 12, 16 and 17 in both directions.
  • On the Leeghwaterplein you will find the stops for Tram 11 and Tram 15 and the HTM buses 18 and 26 in both directions. Bus stops for lines 18 and 26 can be found at the Waldorpstraat stop, by the Megastores.

Walking routes via the app

Recognisable stickers and arrows on the road surface indicating the tram and bus numbers will show travellers the way they should walk from the Hollands Spoor Station to the Rijswijkseplein and Leeghwaterplein stops. From the Rijswijkseweg and Leeghwaterplein there will be a (yellow) route to the Hollands Spoor station.

All routes can be found in the 'Rondom Hollands Spoor' app. Download this app in the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store or view the app online. The app can be downloaded using QR codes which you can find around The Hague’s Hollands Spoor station.
