Leuven Train Station, Leuven

3.0
Leuven is the main railway station in the Belgian city of Leuven, in Flemish Brabant. The station is operated by the national railway company NMBS and is located on railway line 36.
In 2007 it was the fifth busiest station in Belgium, only preceded by the three main Brussels stations and Gent-Sint-Pieters railway station.
The station recently underwent extensive and costly renovations lasting several years. The station square houses a major bus terminal as well as extensive bicycle parking and car parking. The station includes a tunnel which passes underneath the station for pedestrians as well as an overhead bridge with elevators. The station is fully accessible for wheelchairs.
While a high-speed line passes through the station, Leuven is not a stop on any high-speed route. Current expansion is limited because the Leuven station has reached the maximum set of rail and platforms possible, meaning any further expansion would require building an underground segment.
The station is noted for a high occurrence of suicides and accidental death, much higher than the national average.
