The construction of the west side development includes a two-storey departure hall, a two-storey arrival hall, a station administration building with six upper floors, and a single storey parking area. East side development includes a five-storey arrival hall, a two-storey departure hall, and a single storey parking area. Airspace development includes an elevated concourse, the north foot-over-bridge, the south foot-over-bridge, and the renovation of the existing railway platforms.
