Graz Main Station 2020 by Zechner & Zechner

Graz Central Station, with 30,000 travellers per day, is one of the most important transport hubs in Austria. The increasing importance of the transport hub in the future requires adaption of the complex at the train station as well as the connections to public transport within the city of Graz.

Graz Central Station 2020 project, is therefore one of the biggest programmes of the last years within the provincial capital of Styria. On the city side, the tram lines were moved below ground and the entire station plaza was redesigned. On the side towards the platforms, the infrastructure facilities were reconfigured. Especially the roofing depicts a very important element of both these two packages of measures.

A large projecting roof of over 3,000 m2 was constructed as part of the new tram station on the station plaza. The new roofing for the platforms covers an area of approx. 4,500 m2. The projecting roof covering the Europaplatz was already completed in 2012. Zechner & Zechner has already won several awards for the planning, including the World Infrastructure Award. The construction works at the station were completed in May 2015.
