In order for future ICE services between Munich and Berlin to connect with the ICE services between Frankfurt/Main and Dresden changes are being made to the station's tracks and platforms, the station's building are being redeveloped and a new platform bridge is being constructed. The building of the third Erfurt Hauptbahnhof began in 2002 and was originally intended to be completed in 2007. Three island platforms and nine rail tracks as well as four dock platforms are planned. The double-span roof consists of a 20-metre-wide side span and a 65-metre-wide main span with a length of 157 metres and a maximum height of 25 metres. It will cost approximately €260 million. The new station is being built by DB-Projekts as part of the new high speed line between Berlin and München via the Nuremberg-Erfurt high-speed line and Erfurt–Leipzig/Halle high-speed lines.
The unique position of the station at the Willy-Brandt-Platz combines the regional and long-distance trains with perfect connections to the regional bus station, tram services, local buses, taxi cabs, long-distance buses, an underground car park and two bike stations.
