However, as urban populations have swelled, cities are recognizing the potential for these underutilized spaces to become multifunctional urban hubs. The redevelopment of Railway stations provides an opportunity to not only modernize transportation infrastructure but also to create vibrant, sustainable, and interconnected urban centres. RLDA is tasked with unlocking the vast real estate potential of Railway land. It takes on the responsibility of planning, developing, and Commercial Development of land including the redevelopment of Railway stations. RLDA is implementing modular construction for select stations.

  • Multi-Modal Connectivity: Creation of seamless travel experiences for passengers.
  • Segregation of Arrival & Departure
  • Economic Catalyst: Spurring economic growth in the areas surrounding the stations.
  • State of the art construction technology.
  • Planned structure and design based on research based model.
  • Technical enablement for better passenger services and security.

To make the station navigable, proper illumination, way finding/signages, acoustics, lifts/escalators/travellators shall be provided. Master plan has been prepared for smooth movement of traffic, with adequate parking facilities. The redeveloped railway station will boast passenger amenities on par with those typically found at airports. The city centre created due to the railway station's redevelopment will lead to the creation of a fusion hub, seamlessly integrating transportation and commercial activities. With RLDA's commitment to technical enablement, passengers benefit from improved services and security measures, ensuring a safer and more convenient travel experience. The stations will be divyang friendly as well. 

RLDA's efforts towards station redevelopment hold immense promise for India's future. They align with the country's vision for urbanization, sustainability, and economic growth.
