Dubbed the “Golden Eye” by the citizens of Graz, the oval roof structure links the station concourse with the bus stops and protects the entrances to the tram stops situated underground.

Public transport node Voorburg

In the eighties, railroads and highway were elevated and tram, bus and city traffic were positioned beneath the viaduct. This improved the flow of traffic, but at the same time divided historic city structures. In the years to come, several attempts were made to mend this scar but it became clear the solution should entail an emphasis on quality. The promenade Offers a robust and secure pedestrian route between the historic center and the Binckhorst business park. The 600 metre long route structures and connects the different functions of the transport hub with landscape and park. Instead of denying the large ove... More
