Prorail has announced that it intends to award the €130m contract to construct the new public transport terminal in Breda, the Netherlands, to a partnership of Dutch companies Ballast Nedam and Hurks.

Built on the site of the present train station, the new terminal will service trains that link the city centre to the Belcrum district.

The new terminal, designed by architectural firm Koen van Velsen, will be a regional public transport hub including a train and bus station, housing, offices and shops under one roof.

The design features a modern and striking station as well as some 150 apartments, 20,000m² of office space, 9,000m² of shops, and four cafes and restaurants.

The plan of the new terminal includes parking for more than 4,000 bicycles inside and outside the terminal, and parking for 720 cars on the terminal’s roof.
