المكتب الوطني للسكك الحديدية Al-Maktab al-Waṭaniy lil-Sikak al-Ḥadīdiyyah
Formed in 1962 from the colonial era companies, CFM (Compagnie des chemins de fer du Maroc), CMO (Compagnie du chemin de fer du Maroc oriental), TF (Compagnie franco-espagnole du Tanger-Fès), and MN (Chemins de Fer de la Méditerranée au Niger).
Gare Rabat Agdal is Rabat's second major train station after Gare
Rabat Ville. It connects two long separated parts of the city, the
northern end of Rabat (the Akkari quarter) and the southern end (the Agdal
quarter). Designed by Youssef Melehi, it was inaugurated by King Mohammed VI on
March 7, 2016, along with the new Gare Rabat Ville extension, launching
Morocco's first high-speed railway line, Al Boraq. The design combines the architecture
of large airport spaces with traditionally-inspired elements such as the
facades’ transparent geometric design resembling zelij. These triangles, diamonds, and hexagons allow natural light into the vast hall of the station.
The Passenger Building has two main levels: the ground floor, where
passengers enter the station, has restaurants, a ticket office, waiting
rooms, shops, the Al Boraq Lounge, ONCF offices, and access to train platforms.
The mezzanine includes a food court and shops.
The station’s overarching design includes an office building,
which has yet to be constructed.
