Few movements had been made to Lille station since its construction was completed in 1882. Time has aged its appearance and the layout was poorly adapted to present-day working requirements. Once the Lille city authorities had decided that the VAL automatic metro system should be built with a station beneath the main railway station, the SNCF, the City and the Nord-Pas de Calais Regional Authority. The project adopted retains and enhances the 19th century architecture of the building while providing functional amenities which make it a modern station well adapted to its role of being the hub of public transport for the Lille area.
