The comprehensive extension and modernisation work at Matzleinsdorfer Platz station, a vital interchange in Vienna, are on schedule. The latest project completion is the station forecourt, opened on August 10 by ÖBB Infrastructure Director Judith Engel and Economic and Public Transport City Councillor Peter Hanke.

Around 20,000 passengers board, alight or change trains here every day. After the completion of the U2 extension of Wiener Linien, the number of passengers is expected to double. Therefore, the station is already being modernised and expanded with a total investment of 26 million euros.

Forecourt offers more space for public transport passengers

The forecourt on the Margaretengürtel side was built by ÖBB-Infrastruktur AG for Vienna. It now connects the stops of ÖBB and Wiener Linien, as well as the future U2 station Matzleinsdorfer Platz. To provide more space for public transport passengers, the previous right turn lane of the Gürtel into Triesterstraße was integrated into the new forecourt.

Large plant troughs provide integrated seating. This combination of plants and seating is on the one hand a comfortable place to linger and, on the other hand, contributes to an improvement of the microclimate in this area. In this way, ÖBB and the City of Vienna are further enhancing the Vienna Matzleinsdorfer Platz station, which connects the districts of Margareten and Favoriten with the passage.

Judith Engel, ÖBB Infrastructure Director, emphasises: "Matzleinsdorfer Platz is a modern mobility hub of the future. With a bundle of measures, we are creating a contemporary, customer-friendly station. It is already visible in the new forecourt, the modern platforms and the photovoltaic roof. In a further step, we are building a passage - coordinated with the construction of the future underground line U2 - which will enable a quick transfer to the underground. After completion, the Vienna Matzleinsdorfer Platz station fulfils all the requirements of a vital public transport interchange in the urban area."

Peter Hanke, Vienna's Economic and Public Transport City Councillor: "Vienna continues to grow, and this also applies to our modern public transport network. With the extension of the U2 line to Wienerberg, Matzleinsdorfer Platz will gain even more importance as an important mobility hub in the coming years. The modernisation to date and the redesign of the forecourt here has been successful in all aspects and is something to be proud of! I am excited about this successful project and thank ÖBB for the good cooperation, which has always been a reliable partner of the City of Vienna. Together we are creating the mobility turnaround, which is crucial right now for climate protection and Vienna as a business location."

ÖBB station Matzleinsdorfer Platz already completely rebuilt

The modernisation of the ÖBB platforms at Matzleinsdorfer Platz, including the platform roof made of glass with integrated photovoltaic elements, was already completed in spring. ÖBB has thus also comprehensively modernised the last stop on the Vienna S-Bahn main line. Matzleinsdorfer Platz is now barrier-free and has new waiting bunks, escalators and lifts.

The new glass platform roof is translucent and has integrated photovoltaic elements for environmentally friendly power generation. The system has an output of approximately 58 kWp. The platform roof thus protects against wind and weather, brings more natural light into the new access hall and onto the platform, and generates green electricity to supply it.

In the next construction phase in 2025, the passage will be redesigned and equipped with shops, a modern waiting area and toilets. In this phase, the transition to the future U2 station will also be built.
