Renens: construction work at the rail station.

Over the coming years, Renens station is set to be given a complete facelift.

This is so that we can give you a space with better access for passengers with impaired mobility and families with pushchairs, as well as improve the public transport interlinks for connections between SBB, TL, M1 and the planned T1 tram line from Lausanne to Flon.

Engineering work updates.

We are currently carrying out the following work:


Gare de Renens, platform 2 


Once platform 3 and the northern part of platform 2 have been fully opened, the station transformation project will move to the south of the rail station. Work is currently underway on platform 2 (south). This involves lengthening and widening the platform, bringing it to the same level as the trains, and improving safety and access to trains. Work will then continue on platform 1 before the access points to the completed platforms of Renens station are opened at the end of 2020.


  • Work on platform 2 (south): February 2020 to April 2020
  • Work on platform 1: April 2020 to December 2020
