The initial bids for this Rs 6,500 crore New Delhi railway station redevelopment project are expected to be invited in the coming few months.
Northern Railways along with the Railway Land Development Authority (RLDA) is planning to redevelop the New Delhi railway station on the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model.
According to Chairman Railway Board VK Yadav, the new station will have separate entry and exit points for arriving and departing passengers. “Under the proposed plan for the New Delhi railway station elevated access roads will be built, similar to several airports,” VK Yadav told Financial Express Online, adding that the project will take around 4 years for completion after the tenders are awarded.
The first phase of the New Delhi railway station redevelopment project will involve the development of approximately 110 acres of land.
