The Rail Land Development Authority (RLDA) has invited a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the redevelopment of the Delhi Cantonment Railway Station at an investment of ₹335 crore with a completion period of 30 months.
The station needs a revamp to meet the renewed demand for a complete upgrade. The station lacks proper walkways and people cross tracks to reach the platform. While there stands a renovated building attached to platform 1, the station has no fencing from the platform 4 side and there is virtually no parking space. Currently, the station caters to 110 trains but none of them originates from the other states. Given that the station is strategically located in South West Delhi and connects to key areas of Haryana, Rajasthan and Gujarat, the redevelopment of the station will prove to be a boon for the passengers.
The key objectives of station up-gradation are to provide best-in-class amenities to passengers and enhance their travel experience. The scope of work shall broadly cover major up-gradation and undertaking civil and Mechanical-Electrical-Plumbing (MEP) works for in and around station complexes. The new station building will address the existing issues as it will not only facilitate planned pickup and drop but will also regulate entry from both sides of the station.
