The single person air raid schelter made of concrete and steel was built during the Second World War. It provided a shelter for railway signalmen during airplane attacks on the yard.
There were several of these structures spread over the area.
The station Hamont is the frontier of the railway Antwerp-Mol-Hamont-Mönchengladbach in the German Ruhr.
