The old station and the dormitory of CP in Barreiro will become a hostel
The initiative aims to restore the space that has been closed since 2008 when the new train station was inaugurated.
The more than 296 thousand square meters of the old station and the dormitory of the CP, in Barreiro, will be rehabilitated. The news is being demanded in an official communiqué of the Barreiro City Hall, which states that the space of the Warehouse of Foods will be transformed into a hostel.
The old station where several trains passed every day was closed since 2008, when the new train station of Barreiro was opened to connect the city with Setúbal. The project is part of a subconcession between the city council and the infrastructure area of Infraestruturas de Portugal.
The works have started. Some restaurants and recreational areas will be built next to the hostel. The municipality predicts that the works at the station, inaugurated in 1884, were completed before the end of 2019.
