Blijdorp RandstadRail station
|Opened||17 Aug 2010|
The station was opened on August 17, 2010, together with the tunnel connecting the metro station of Rotterdam Centraal to the Hofpleinlijn, which is part of the RandstadRail project. Since the station opened, line E trains run from Rotterdam Centraal towards Den Haag Centraal. After approximately one year, in 2011, a connection will be established with the existing metro network of Rotterdam, allowing a direct connection between Slinge station and Den Haag Centraal.
On the 26th of May 2010, a disaster drill was held in this station. In order to make it seem real an old metrocar was destroyed
