A modern and passenger-friendly railway station has been built in Gödöllő

2024. 03. 28.

A contemporary style, understated yet distinctive station building was constructed, creating a regional hub where passengers of increasingly frequent trains can comfortably transfer to the HÉV, local and regional buses, or head towards the university and the city.

Gödöllő is one of the most frequented travel destinations in the Budapest agglomeration, located along the Budapest-Hatvan railway line and serving as the terminus of the H8 suburban railway line. Additionally, it is home to the Széchenyi István University, resulting in significant commuter traffic from students arriving in the city.

Before the improvements, university students arriving in Gödöllő could directly access the university building via a pedestrian overpass after disembarking from the train. Therefore, the most significant innovation was the construction of a pedestrian underpass, connecting the university district with Gödöllő city center through the AlsóPark, under the railway tracks. This facilitates easier access for passengers to the railway and closer HÉV platforms, as well as to the Széchenyi István University.

The modernization of the Gödöllő station project, implemented by the National Infrastructure Development Ltd., provided an opportunity for Gödöllő to serve passenger traffic with a renovated railway station and associated infrastructure befitting the significance of its transport hub. As a result of the project, the modern and contemporary renovated station building enables easier and more comfortable public transportation in the region’s hub.

Beyond functionality, the investment holds aesthetic value. The newly built single-story modern station building, erected as part of the project, directly connects to the adjacent neobaroque Royal Waiting Room building, constructed in 1882 and refurbished in 2011. The juxtaposition of these two buildings from different eras is balanced by green spaces, creating an aesthetically pleasing ensemble that honors the values of the past while meeting contemporary standards of quality.
