PM Narendra Modi inaugurates Lucknow’s Gomti Nagar Railway Station, recently redeveloped by CP Kukreja Architects.

 The Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi virtually inaugurated Lucknow’s Gomti Nagar Railway Station, on February 26, 2024. Recently redeveloped by global architecture and design practice CP Kukreja Architects, the mixed-use project comprises the existing railway station infrastructure — a built-up area of 20 acres — and integrates a 40-acre commercial land parcel.

Owing to the station’s proximity to the city centre and its strategic location in Gomti Nagar, the up-and-coming commercial and IT heart of Lucknow city, the station is reimagined as an integrated, mixed-use development.

The project is based on a self-financing model of redevelopment, which means that the revenue generated from the commercial development will be used to bear the cost of renovation and refurbishment of the railway infrastructure.

The overall plan for the station is designed to achieve hassle-free circulation. The arrival and departure terminals have been segregated vertically to separate the flow of arriving passengers on the ground floor from departing passengers on the first floor. This will free the station from the typical hindrances caused due to cross-passenger movements commonly seen at railway stations.

The façade, which amalgamates contemporary and traditional Awadhi architecture, pays homage to the city’s history and culture. Arches adorned with jaalis (traditional perforated screens) are introduced into the skin of the facade. Spanning the entire length of the facade, these arches are actually structural elements that reinforce the strength and integrity of the structure. Drawing inspiration from the domes found in Lucknow’s traditional architecture, the station’s roof is curvilinear and is lined with photovoltaic cells for solar power generation.

The design ensures efficient connectivity between the station building and the retail complex so that the passengers can easily walk from shopping and office areas into the railway station and vice versa. This allows them to enjoy entertainment spaces, kiosks and retail shops while making their way in or out.
