Reconstruction controversy edit

During the modernization a new modular station was built, a tree-covered building in which ticket sales will take place, and a toilet is also available. At the time of modernization, the old building was demolished, the station building was moved and the old toilet was removed. The demolition of the old station building, and the replacement with metal containers, caused a great deal of indignation in society and in the media.

Old building, now demolished.
