Opened 1847

Rouen-Rive-Droite is a large railway station serving the city of Rouen, in northern France. The station is on Rue Verte in the north of the city. Services are mainly intercity but many services are local. There are also TGV from Le Havre to Marseille-Saint-Charles and to Strasbourg.

History[edit]

The station opened its doors in 1847 when the Rouen–Le Havre section of the Paris–Le Havre railway opened to service. The line previously had its terminus at Rouen Rive-Gauche. With the increase in traffic, the construction of the new station on the North bank of the River Seine started. The station building was designed in Art Nouveau style by architect Adolphe Dervaux, with engaged sculpture by Camille Lefèvre. The station was inaugurated on 4 July 1928 by French President Gaston Doumergue. At first named Rue Verte, the station then changed name to Rive-Droite. In 1994 an interchange was built to serve Rouen métro.
