Railways upgrades Bengaluru’s Yesvantpur railway station at Rs 12 cr

Yesvantpur railway station in Bengaluru has recently been upgraded at a cost Rs 12 crore by the South Western Railways (SWR).

The station in North Bengaluru now has upgraded facilities, like new roofing and landscaping in front of the station, as well as wider approach roads to the common and parking areas, including auto and cab stands.

Additional parking areas for two and four-wheelers are among the new amenities.

According to a senior official, a bus bay has been built, allowing Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) buses to transport passengers directly to and from the station.

With its all-illuminated entry point and a 200 m roof, the Indian Railways has given itself a new look.

Beautification works of the station were coordinated with Davanagere, Dharwad, and Mysuru railway stations, according to E Vijaya, the Deputy General Manager of SWR.

Work on the Mysuru railway station is currently completed, and other stations are being renovated, he said.

Officials said that the work at Yesvantpur station was supposed to be completed by March last year but got delayed due to the Covid-19 induced lockdown.

Work on the third terminal of Byappanahalli railway station, which will include seven platforms, is nearly complete.

The railway station, as per officials, is designed to serve 1 lakh railway passengers per day.

It also has passenger-friendly features like Braille signage, ramps to access the subway, and lifts and escalators, in addition to lifts and escalators.

Due to road connectivity issues, the station has yet to open to the general public. A raised rotary flyover to the terminal has been proposed by the city council.

Chief Commissioner Gaurav Gupta of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) presented the plan to the railway minister.
