Halle Main station
The platforms at Halle (Saale) Hauptbahnhof are being rebuilt to accommodate the upgraded track layout, the standard rail lengths ordered and the prospective use.
The upgraded track layout is the reason for platform reconstruction.
The future-oriented infrastructure and the simplification of the track layout will ultimately contribute to cutting the maintenance outlay for the structural and technical installations. The project will also comply with the latest European standards, the TSI standards, which are legally-binding technical regulations, issued by the European Commission. They apply to rail traffic across Europe, in order to secure interoperability, i.e. a consistently-operated railway system. They cover platforms, energy, train control and train safety, amongst other things.
