The Old Delhi Railway Station has been looking the same since 1903, and now finally, it’s all set to get a new look! Yes, in four months time, passengers will be travelling from a completely refurbished Old Delhi Railway Station.
The Delhi Division of Northern Railways had started working on the over 100 years old railway station last year and are in full hopes to have it done in a few months. The major problem till now was the super cramped entry point, but now the circulating area near the railway station has been completely revamped and the congestion will hopefully be looked at.
Another new addition to the station is a railway information display system, apart from new false ceiling at the entrance to the heritage building! Drainage was a big problem at the railway station, but that too has been now taken care of.
Apart from refurbishing the retiring rooms at the railway station, the authorities are also exploring the possibility of tourist information booths at the station in association with Delhi Tourism. The authorities are also planning to provide high-speed Internet services at the station.
Good going Indian Railways!
