NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): On Monday, the redevelopment of the New Delhi railway station‘s lowest bid was submitted by Larsen & Toubro (L&T). The quoted price is above Rs 8,740 crore, which is considerably higher compared to the expected project cost of approximately Rs 5,000 crore by the railroads.

Earlier, the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) had approved Rs 10,000 crore to redevelop three significant stations: New Delhi, Ahmedabad, and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) of Mumbai. According to the authority, they are examining every aspect, and it might take around a month to reach the final decision.

This was the first time when Rail Land Development Authority (RLDA) opened the tenders for the private players to submit bids. Only L&T and Sapoorji Pallonji – have submitted bids for this fully government-funded project. The Indian Railways had set the target to bid out the project in April so that the work would begin within the next couple of months.

The revamp of New Delhi railway station will take approximately two years and will have two unique twin domes with four floors of roof plazas, offering an extra 15 acres of space. In addition, the arrival and departure of the station will be completely separated to avoid crowding at the roof plaza, which will be 10 metres above the track.

Around the twin domes, there will be an elevated road system. The passengers can only come to the platform to board or after stepping from the train. However, the travellers will wait at the roof Plaza and exit the station from the same area to prevent crowd.
