The public ream and infrastructure works to the area in front of Olomouc train station was completed in 2010 and was reorganised so as to function as an easy navigable transport interchange. Within the concourse of the train station, tram and bus stops have been accommodated allowing for an easy transition from one mode of transport to another. Cars are directed around this space, with a drop off car park to its north. Cycle parking has been accommodated, however a cycle route does not pass through this space.

The materials to pave the space are the ubiquitous Czech Republic setts. Necessary structures are modern in design, using concrete and glass, these integrate well with the traditional paving material. The space is arranged in a legible manor, allowing clear sight lines to critical points.

The reorganisation of this space now makes it a pleasure to use public transport for local and tourist alike. It is a pedestrian friendly space with clear visual markers and easy to navigate.
