HistoryEdit

Construction of Meijersplein station began in January 2008. The station was built to replace Wilgenplas station, located approximately 500 meters (1,600 ft) north. Wilgenplas was served by railway trains on the Hofplein line before that line was converted for exploitation by metro trains, and the station was temporarily kept in service after this conversion took place in 2006.

In May 2010, construction of Meijersplein station completed and Wilgenplas was closed down on May 12 of that year. On May 17, Meijersplein was opened and it is now being served by metro trains of line E. The station has an Airport Shuttle service to and from Rotterdam The Hague Airport.
