Closure in the past week : Partial closure at Bonn central station ends

The partial closure at Bonn Central Station is over. The work was completed overnight into Monday. The trains are now running to the station again as normal.

According to a spokesman for Deutsche Bahn (DB - German Rail), the planned construction work at Bonn's main railway station has been completed on schedule. A partial closure was necessary while the work was being carried out. As of Monday, local and long-distance trains have been running again according to the normal timetable.

The DB had worked on the switches and tracks and the extension of platform 3 to track 4 until Monday morning at midnight. During this time only the Regionalexpress 5 stopped at the main station. In order to compensate for the loss of the other trains, Nahverkehr Rheinland had provided a substitute rail service between Bonn Central Station and Bornheim-Roisdorf through Transregio and additional trains from Beuel Station to Cologne. The Bonn station will be completely renovated by the end of 2020.
