In phases between 2012 - 2018
On the Westside of Utrecht Central Station lies Jaarbeurssquare. In a couple of years underneath this square there'll be a parkinggarage, while shops, apartments and entertainment will surround it, thus making it a much livelier space than it is now.
From Utrecht Central descending the broad stairs, you’ll reach the new Jaarbeurssquare. The presentday messy domination of taxis, buses and a large construction site will soon be forgotten; a broad lively square will be a reality. Underneath the square a parking garage for cars will open.
Don’t worry: you can still park your bike here close to the station; underneath the new station entrance, an elavated square, a giant bikeshed opened in 2014.
