00647 renovation and optimization of the railway station building, křižanov

< 1 / 11 >

The railway station building in Křižanov was completed in 1955. It lies on the national line Kúty — Brno — Havlíčkův Brod and serves as a transfer hub for train and bus transport. The station welcomes 660 passengers per day. However, the facility was originally designed to handle far more traffic due to plans at the time to erect a large machine factory on the land adjacent. That was before 1948, of course, and when the project faced resistance from local farmers, the factory (ŽĎAS) was eventually built in nearby Ždár nad Sázavou instead, leaving behind an oversized station building in Křižanov.

The revitalisation project included complete reconstruction of all buildings and optimisation of operations. The main building and operational facilities of the station, short-term lodging, and flats underwent complete reconstruction. The work also included structural modifications to the underpass leading to the platforms. The concourse building was demolished and replaced by a smaller building with public areas (waiting room and public toilets). The remaining land vacated by the demolition provided space for new paved areas, park landscaping, covered bicycle parking, and storage for the adjacent garden. At the same time, renovations were done to the immediate surroundings and bus stands.
