Prayagraj junction's redevelopment phase 2 starts

The on-going redevelopment process of Prayagraj Junction revolves around the dual objectives of preserving heritage while facilitating development. It has been reported that the second phase of pillar piling, aimed at constructing a 72-metre wide concourse on the Civil Lines side of the junction, has commenced.

It was conveyed that platform numbers seven and eight have been temporarily closed for piling, affecting their operation until June 11. Previously, piling activities were concluded on platform numbers nine and ten in February. Additionally, 27 trains that previously arrived at platform number eight have been rerouted to Cheoki railway station.

It was mentioned in promotional material that Prayagraj Junction has been allocated the highest budget in the country for station redevelopment, amounting to Rs 9.60 billion. The initial phase involved laying the foundation for a new building on the Civil Lines side, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurating the project via video conferencing on August 6.

The transformation aims to offer world-class amenities akin to those found in airports. In March, the railway colony adjacent to the junction was evacuated and subsequently demolished in April. Structural work is slated for completion by the end of October 2024, with the second phase scheduled to commence from February 1, 2025, and conclude by December 2026.
