Intermodal Hub


Function: railway station, new admission building and pedestrian-cycle overpass
Year: 2016
Gross floor area: 7720 m²
Location: Tatabánya, Hungary

The City of Tatabánya has launched a tender for the construction of an intermodal hub. The planned pedestrian-cycle flyover bridge spans the tracks and platforms, from where access to the platforms is provided via stairs and escalators on both sides and lifts between them. The bridge is a sophisticated, skeleton-like structure, a combination of white reinforced concrete and steel, which stretches out like a wing and connects the parts of the city cut in two by railway tracks.

The plan also includes the station reception building, which is located parallel to the tracks in the traditional layout of a through station, and houses the station functions. It houses the ticket offices, passenger information with associated office and social areas; the lobby; the waiting room; the catering industry; the necessary social block; the security service residence; the necessary storage and warehousing; the mechanical room; the electrical and telecommunications rooms. Both the bridge and the reception building have been designed with full accessibility.
