Unnati More Oct 31, 2023 0

This project involves the major upgrade of the Raipur railway station under SECR.

Overview of the Project:

The South East Central Railways (SECR) has floated the tender for the major upgradation of the Raipur railway station on EPC (Engineering, Procurement, and Construction) mode. The station will be developed by RLDA (Rail Land Development Authority).

Raipur railway station is a grade A-1 station and serves as one of the highest revenue-earning railway stations in India. Raipur Railway Station has seen some passenger growth in the past few years, resulting in the infrastructural challenges of rail transport. To overcome these challenges, SECR proposed redevelopment of the station.

The overall project spreads across approximately 13 acres of land parcel with a construction area of 1,281,939 SqFt and the estimated cost of 439 INR-Crore. The scope of work involves – demolishing the existing building and reconstructing a new one with a wider footprint, a non-congested entry/exit into the station premises, separate arrival and departure areas, adequate concourses without overcrowding, user-friendly signages, well-lit circulating areas, ample parking, drop-off, and pick-up facilities, and other facilities.

Creative Group is the design Architect for this project.
