Modern rail transport needs modern stations and stops. In April 2019, the first works for the modernisation of Unterpurkersdorf station started, and the main works began in January 2020 and could now be completed.

Completion of the first stage of the Park & Ride facility is planned for autumn next year, with the remaining work expected to continue until the end of 2023. Reinhold Hödl and Heinz Gschnitzer from ÖBB inspected the new station together with Regional Mobility Councillor Ludwig Schleritzko and Mayor Stefan Steinbichler. 

As part of the project, new tracks and points including point heating systems were laid, a new overhead line was installed, as well as a new island platform with new customer information systems and a waiting berth and a new reinforced concrete passenger crossing with two staircases and two lifts as a barrier-free connection from the station forecourt to the island platform and Wintergasse respectively. In addition, the substructure and drainage systems were renewed, the accompanying paths were rebuilt, and the track equipment - safety technology, telecommunications and electrical engineering - was brought up to date. The new construction of the electronic interlocking for the optimal handling of railway operations rounds off this extensive project. 61.2 million euros were invested.
