Habibganj railway station in Madhya Pradesh will become Indian Railways’ first airport-like hub by the end of this year. Being redeveloped by IRSDC, the Habibganj railway station will be a world-class transit hub with a dedicated concourse area.
According to IRSDC MD and CEO, SK Lohia, a lot of civil work for the ambitious project has been completed. “I believe the Habibganj railway station will be completely redeveloped and ready by December-end 2019,” Lohia told Financial Express Online. “The work on the new concourse took more time than we expected due to the requirement of several clearances. But, I am hopeful that by December-end we will be able to complete work on this world-class station,” Lohia said.
IRSDC is redeveloping the Habibganj railway station on the PPP model along with the Bansal Group. While the station redevelopment will cost around Rs 100 crore, approximately Rs 350 crore will be spent on commercial development in and around the railway station. Read More
