The project is expected to cost around Rs 400 crore. The upgrade will be carried out on an EPC contract approach.
Construction of a new station building, a 108 mtr wide air plaza above platforms for movement and waiting of leaving passengers, provision of a second entry, and integrating both sides of the city are all part of the scope of work.
The structure will have a fire suppression system as well as grid-connected solar photovoltaic installations. The project is expected to take three years to complete.
