The Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) in Mumbai, which is being redeveloped at a cost of ₹1,600 crores upwards by the Indian Railways, will retain its iconic heritage look, according to a top official of the Indian Railways Station Development Corporation (IRSDC).
“CST is a very important station for Mumbai and Indian Railways, it is also on the UNESCO World Heritage site list, the only Indian station. The redevelopment plan of the station will cost approximately ₹1,642 crores. As per our plan, we will restore the 1930s look without touching the yard and the commercial development also will be done taking the heritage aspect into consideration,” S K Lohia, Managing Director, IRSDC told ANI here.
Lohia said that the platform space for the sub-urban railway will be increased and a new terminal for long-distance trains will be constructed, along with a new entry point at the terminus.
