What work will the municipality carry out?
As the years have passed, the Oostlijn metro route has become cluttered and messy. To provide more light and space in the stations, parts will be demolished, corners and recesses will be eliminated, glass atria built, and the ticket machines will all be assembled together in a single wall. The existing lifts will be renovated. In addition, the stair railings and metro signs will be replaced, lighting will be renovated and lights above the stairs will be replaced by indirect light along the walls. More information about the renovation can be found at: Wijnemenjemee.nl/oostlijn (Dutch).
14 May until mid-September, the Nieuwmarkt entrance will be open
On 14 May, the Koningsstraat entrance will close for renovation work. The Koningstraat and Nieuwe Hoogstraat entrances will be closed until mid-September. You can access the metro by using the Nieuwmarkt entrance. There is an elevator. The metro will be in service on the normal timetable.
