(formerly Gare du Nord
) is the main station for the Northern French city of Amiens
The station opened on 15 March 1847 when the line to Abbeville
opened to passengers. The station building was subsequently replaced by the present structure following the allied bombardment and was built in 1955 by Auguste Perret
. A tower called the Tour Perret
was built at the same time and close to the station.
Nord is both a terminus and a through station, the passenger concourse was built over the six platforms to facilitate passenger movement. Although the station front was built between adjoining buildings the hall is as big as its Parisian counterparts.
The station is served by the local TER Haute-Normandie, TER Nord-Pas-de-Calais et TER Picardie services to destinations including: Rouen, Calais, Lille, Reims, Compiègne and Paris-Nord. The station also sees Intercity services between Boulogne and Paris. The station is not yet served by the TGV, but there is currently a bus service between Amiens and Haute-Picardie TGV station.,
