The Rail Land Development Authority (RLDA) has granted the Bengaluru construction company the LOA for the project. A budget of Rs 474 crore has been allocated for the railway station in Jodhpur.
The work of redeveloping Jodhpur station is ongoing, according to Captain Shashi Kiran, CPRO of North Western Railway, and is being overseen by General Manager Vijay Sharma. The corporation has appointed a representative in an effort to raise funds for station development.
At the current Jodhpur station, a multistory structure is envisaged. The installation of 32 new elevators and 16 new escalators, as well as multi-level parking, separate gates for arrival and departure, a security checking area, and a 72-metre-wide concourse area in the main station building, will increase the current strength.
The station’s two-foot over bridges will be connected to the skywalk. The station will be outfitted with a baby food room, an executive waiting area, retail stalls, restrooms, and a variety of other contemporary passenger amenities.
Through a variety of architectural characteristics and elements including Yellowstone latticework, arches, domes, chhatri, jharokha, baradari, ornamentation, stonework, stone cladding, etc., the redevelopment of Jodhpur station will reflect the rich tradition of Suryanagari.
In addition to renewable energy sources like waste processing and rainwater harvesting, the entire project will incorporate green building amenities with elements for reducing energy consumption during construction as well as operation and maintenance.
The current railway offices will be temporarily relocated to other locations for station construction work, according to Captain Shashi Kiran. In four to five phases, the station’s reconstruction work will be finished. In three years, this station redevelopment project will be finished.
