INR 197 crore to improve passenger facilities at Balasore station

The Railway Board has unveiled a plan inspired by Balasore’s (Odisha) heritage. Expect intricate arches, ornate facades, and locally sourced materials reflecting Baleswar’s charm. This project carries a price tag of INR 197 crore and promises to serve the needs of 50,000 passengers daily for the next 50 years.

Both sides will be connected by an 18-meter wide roof plaza, offering shelter from the elements. The circulating area will be improved, and a covered shed will provide additional comfort. Upgraded waiting halls and the addition of AC lounges will further enhance the travel experience.

Movement will be easy with 14 lifts, 6 escalators, and 20 access control gates. Three foot over bridges will ensure smooth connection between all platforms.
All platforms will be fully covered, and a spacious parking area spanning over 7,000 square meters will be developed. Embrace eco-friendly travel with a 133 KW solar panel and a 1000 KLD water recycling plant, reducing the station’s carbon footprint. Improved goods shed facilities will boost efficiency and support local businesses.
