|Opened||2 May 1877|
Rotterdam Zuid was first opened on 2 May 1877 as a station on the Breda–Rotterdam railway (Staatslijn I). To the north was the Hefbrug, connecting the railtracks from the north and the south of Rotterdam, and to the south was Barendrecht. The area around the station was less developed than today. It was a simple station, without a building and with 2 platforms. After World War II, the reconstruction of the railroad tracks in and around Rotterdam began. In 1958, Rotterdam Zuid was renovated and had gained a small building.
The station remained that way until the next reconstruction in 1993, when a tunnel was built to replace the flyover at Blaak and the bridges over the Meuse. The station was given a total makeover. The number of tracks between Rotterdam and Dordrecht was being expanded from 2 to 4, giving the station 4 platform tracks. To reach all of the platforms, a traverse was built over the station, which connected the Rosestraat and the Oranjeboomstraat.
