It was the only new S-Bahn station constructed by the Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG, Berlin Transportation Company) after it took over the operations of the S-Bahn in West Berlin.[4]

It consists of two side platforms, each of which has exits to the south to the streets of Schichauweg and Barnetstrasse. Additional northern entrances were opened from both platforms to the streets of Miethepfad and Kettinger Straße on 25 November 1991.[5]

HistoryEdit

The railway line was opened at ground level through undeveloped land in 1875. There was a signalman's house southwest of the present station.

The line was raised and placed on an embankment in 1938. The Berlin Outer Freight Ring (German: Güteraußenring, GAR) was built at the same time; this ran east–west to the north of the present station. A connecting curve ran between the south and the east and an additional curve was built in 1944 from the south to the west. With the building of a new parallel Berlin outer ring (Berliner Außenring, BAR) in 1951, the Outer Freight Ring lost its function and it was only used for local freight. It has since been closed and it was dismantled in the area north of Schichauweg station.

In the mid-1980s, the single-track railway bridge that had been built in 1938 over the street was replaced by a new two-track bridge.[6]
