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.

Where?

Renens station, platform 1 and underpass

What?

An important milestone for customers was reached in autumn 2020 at Renens station: all the platforms have been extended to accomodate for longer trains. They have also been raised to facilitate access to the trains for people with reduced mobility and people with pushchairs. The station is now more welcoming, has brighter lighting and is accessible to all thanks to new ramps.

The final stages of work will take place in 2021, notably putting the finishing touches on the canopy on platform 1 and installing new lighting in the underpass. 

When?

December 2020 to autumn 2021
