NEW DELHI (Metro Rail News): Ministry of Railways has accelerated the redevelopment of major stations across the country. Presently 40 Railway stations are being redeveloped on Indian Railways to provide modern amenities. In addition, 14 Railway Stations are under the tendering stage for redevelopment and are likely to be awarded in the next five months. Redevelopment of railway stations across the country will have a multiplier effect on the economy with increased job creation and economic growth.
Redevelopment of these Stations envisages the provision of a spacious Roof Plaza, facilities such as a food court, waiting lounge, children’s play area, designated space for local products, etc. The development will integrate various modes of transport with Railway Stations, viz. Metro, Bus, etc., will also integrate both sides of the city with the station. The construction of station infrastructure will adopt green building technology and facilities for ‘Divyangjans’. The stations will be developed on the intelligent building, with state-of-the-art facilities for passengers. Station redevelopment will create a ‘City Centre’ space for railway commuters and the general public.
Rani Kamalapati station of the West Central Railway, Gandhinagar Capital station of the Western Railway and Sir M. Visveswaraya Terminal Station of the South Western Railway have been developed and commissioned.
Timeframe for the construction of stations cannot be indicated at this stage as the station development program is complex and involves multiple stakeholders and various statutory clearances.
