Opening NS Station SugarCity

Halfweg, December 2012 – “Festive opening for the new Halfweg-Zwanenburg stop. The world is now open for us.” This is the headline of the Haarlems Dagblad (local daily newspaper) this morning.

The new NS-Station Halfweg-Zwanenburg was officially opened on Monday 10 December by Johan Remkes, Commissioner for the Queen. On the adjacent parking lot, the Park & Ride, a large stage was set up with space for several drummers. After the speech of the Commissioner, drums were ready in the racks of the stage. Several photos of the construction were presented under a large light show, smoke machines and drums.
