Luxembourg's authorities have set their sights on modernising the country's 35 railway stations in order to enhance the waiting experience for passengers in the coming years.
Leading the way in this endeavour is the central railway station in Luxembourg City, which has recently introduced a pioneering collaboration between the Luxembourg National Railway Company (CFL) and the Cactus supermarket chain. Together, they have established a joint venture that has resulted in the opening of a new shop.
Expanding on this concept, the same facility is set to offer a wide range of services including newspapers, lottery games, postal products, and a bar scheduled to open next year.
In addition, plans are underway to introduce shops at the Mersch and Ettelbruck stations.
For stations with limited space, alternative solutions are being implemented. Containers will be installed to provide CFL customers with the convenience of shopping, while 42 vending machines and food trucks will be specially deployed at these locations.
In response to a parliamentary question by MP Chantal Gary from the Green Party (déi Gréng), Minister for Mobility François Bausch also confirmed that a bicycle workshop will open alongside the underground cycle park at the central railway station in Luxembourg City.
