Jaipur Junction will soon be seen in a new look with gym, shopping and restaurant facilities. It will soon be undergoing redevelopment and will be ready in about three and a half years.
Railways are developing 6 stations including Jaipur, Udaipur in Rajasthan under the redevelopment scheme. Jaipur junction will be revamped in a budget of Rs 750 crore. The work has been started and the railway station will be completed in about three and a half years.
After redevelopment, the entry to the station will not be from Parshuram circle only. The new entry/exit point will be made in the old GM office towards Hasanpura. All other departments including Railway Electrification (RE) located here have been shifted to Jagatpura.
Apart from this, the work of the sky walk-way being built to enter the Jaipur station directly from the metro station has also started. Jaipur will be the first station in the state, where not only passengers but also common people will be able to come and for this tickets will not have to be taken.
Restaurant entry from outside
It will have a gym and shopping mall on the first floor of the station. Outsiders can come and shop here. Major catering stalls and restaurants of Jaipur city will also be opened. Visitors will get to taste the food of famous restaurants in Jaipur. These all will also be made soundproof. Its entry will be from outside, that is, without entering the platform.
Reservation Hall will also be upgraded
The reservation and booking hall at the entry of the station will also be upgraded. Underground parking with a capacity of more than 10,000 will be developed in place of the engine park built at the main gate of the railway station.
Parcel house will be shifted
Under the redevelopment of junction, firstly the parcel office built near platform number 7/8 (Sikar End) will be shifted towards Magistrate Court Second Entry i.e. Hasanpura. In the near future, passengers will have to go to the second entry to send goods by trains. Also, the food plaza and Jan Aahar built on platform number 1 will also be shifted from here.
