HIK Ontwerpers capitalized on the opportunity to provide a unique and playful experience for commuters in their hometown of Utrecht.  Part of a complete renovation of the Overvecht railway station the transfer accelerator, the official name given to the slide by ProRail the railway maintenance company, provides a fun and unforgettable way of getting to where you are going.  The slide was installed as the final piece of the station renovation and opened earlier this month. A video and additional photographs of the transfer accelerator following the break.
