Chandigarh Railway Station is All Set for Renovation Jul 02

Chandigarh railway station is all set for renovation to the tune of Rs 1 crore, where in it will have a new over bridge and a wider circulating area for upgrading the facilities.

Now, the frequent travellers will not complain about lack of space at the station, as the plan to improving the circulating area is in the pipeline.

The Railway Ministry will probably give a green signal for renovating the railway station in the Railway budget likely to be announced on Friday.

At present, the station has 1-ft over bridge, which gets crowded in the peak hours, making it difficult for the passengers to boarding trains.

The divisional railway manager, HP Jaggi said: “The present over bridge connects platforms No. 2, 3, 4, and 5 is very narrow. When the trains reach, the passengers face problems crossing the bridge. Thus, another foot over bridge is likely to be constructed on the right side of the station for which around Rs 80 lakh will be invested.”

The parking lot of the station had been revamped recently, he added.

Meanwhile, the railway station will soon have packed meals available for the commuters. Sources said the authorities concerned had approved a vendor who would be selling the packed meals in the circulating area.
