Construction[edit]

The main part of Dresden-Neustadt station consists of 8 tracks, along with two additional tracks for crossing freight trains. The roof of the train shed covers the central section of all passenger platforms, which are arranged in an island layout between two tracks each. Access to the platforms is granted by stairways leading down to two passenger tunnels between the western front of the station and the station building, which is situated east of the train shed facing Schlesischer Platz. All tracks are on an elevated platform, which allows the adjacent Hansastraße and the passenger tunnels running under the platforms. In Summer 2013, a major rebuild of all platforms is under way.

Adjacent to the main station is temporary Platform (Gleis) 10, situated to the west on the curve of the direct route (Strecke 6246) through the former Dresden Neustadt Gbf from Abzw. Dresden-Pieschen to just south of Dresden-Neustadt station. In Summer 2013, this line/platform is in regular use by RE50 services from Leipzig Hbf to Dresden Hbf services in the southbound direction only, during rebuilding of the Cosweg/Neustadt route from 2 to 4 tracks; this line is not expected to be used again by passenger services after the autumn of 2013.
