Work halted at Arnhem's new train station

ARNHEM -- Travellers will have to make do with the temporary train station as construction of Arnhem's new railway station concourse has been temporarily suspended.
The Arnhem town council has been unable to find a contractor willing to complete the futuristic building for the available budget. However, the building of a tunnel under the station and the construction of a new cycle shed will go ahead and must be finished by 2011.
The delay in construction means that train passengers will have to continue using the temporary station which has been heavily criticised for being user-unfriendly. Since its opening in 2006, passengers have complained about its steep staircases and extended concourses.
