The redeveloped station will act as a ‘city centre’, attracting passengers as well as the general public. There will be a 216-metre-wide air concourse, with segregated arrival/departure gates for passengers to avoid congestion. The roof plaza proposed over the platform will include retail spaces, food court, entertainment centres, etc. Clearly defined LED-based signages will be provided to help passengers on premises.
A new four-storey station building will come up towards the Metro station side (west). There will be multi-level car parking near platform no. 1 side (G+5 structure). Above platform no. 1, there will be a departure-cum-arrival plaza with direct connectivity to the air concourse, just as in an airport. The roofing of the air concourse will have a provision for allowing direct natural light. Further, well-demarcated drop and pick-up points will be provided to avoid crowding/congestion.
It will have a provision of connecting with the Metro station at the air-concourse level for the convenience of passengers. For easy access, an elevated road will come up on the east (city side), connecting directly to the air-concourse departure plaza. There will be seamless integration of all modes of public transport at the station for public convenience.
