Interior view of Liège-Guillemins Railway Station, Belgium


The new Liège-Guillemins Railway Station was officially opened on 18 September 2009 to accommodate the high speed trains since the existing platforms were too small. It has 9 tracks and 5 platforms (three of 450 m and two of 350 m). All the tracks around the station have been modernised to allow high speed arrival and departure. The new station is made of steel, glass and white concrete. It includes a monumental arch, 160 meters long and 32 meters high. The building costs were €312 million.
