Overview

New construction station square Bern

From 2005 to 2008, the new construction project of the Bahnhofplatz Bern was carried out. Full-scale work was carried out on roads, public transport facilities, railways and works pipelines.

Project description

New construction of the station square in Bern, from 2005 to 2008 - the following works were carried out: Road renewal, renewal of the facilities for public transport on the road and on the rail, the total renovation of the underground utilities (water, gas and electric) of ewb (Energie Wasser Bern), public lighting, planting and environmental works, adaptation works on the buildings at Hirschengraben, Bubenbergplatz, Bahnhofplatz, as well as Spitalgasse. The reconstruction and repair of the Christoffel underpass was made possible by the construction of the second basement level. The main work was carried out during a traffic closure. In order to avoid logistical bottlenecks, road construction work in the area of Bubenbergplatz and Bahnhofplatz Nord was greatly accelerated. This meant that the track construction work along the streetcar diameter line, including the associated road construction work, could be carried out subsequently.
