Reference project platform roofs: Eppstein Station

During the work performed to adjust the tracks to the new Eppstein tunnel, the entire Eppstein station was modernised, from 2013 to 2015. Travellers can enjoy a modern infrastructure with a direct connection to the bus traffic as well as additional parking spaces and new platforms with high-quality platform roofs.

Various versions of the Bodenheim system from Hering were used for roofing. For the external platform, there is a 34m long type 2 roof. The combined bus-train platforms use the type 1 roof, also in a 34 m length. The roofing in the staircases and elevators required a custom solution based on type 1 and type 1b. Both roofs were joined together to provide optimal weather protection.
