How the Dutch do it: Slide to the Train
It’s officially called a ‘transfer accelerator’ by Dutch railway maintenance company ProRail, but everyone else would say it’s a slide. An awesome slide.
Installed next to a stairway at the newly renovated railway station Overvecht in the city of Utrecht, the slide offers travellers the opportunity to quickly reach the railway tracks when they’re in a hurry.
But above all, the slide is a great instrument to make the city more playful. Click here for a photo series of the project, and click here for a video that shows you how it feels to slide to the train.
