- Excavation work for Temporary Booking Office and RPF Office is in progress
- Station Upgradation is targeted for completion by October 2025
The Upgradation works for the premier station of South Central Railways – Secunderabad Railway Station – are continuing in full swing so as to complete the works within the stipulated time i.e., by October 2025. After completing the Soil Investigation Work and Topographic Survey, the works are progressing in planned manner in to the next stage.
Based on the Topographic Survey, the site layout and demarcation plan work is under progress. The upgraded Station Building will be having new state-of-the-art Booking Office. To accommodate this as well as the Multi-Level Car Parking that will be coming up at the North-side of the existing station, the existing Booking Office is to be shifted temporarily. Accordingly, the existing two-wheeler parking at the North-side has been shifted to alternate location (in the North-side only) near Gate No. 3. Further, to accelerate the shifting of Booking Office, excavation work for the foundations of the temporary Booking Office is also under progress.
Similarly, after clearing the Old Railway Quarters, excavation work for laying the foundations for the new RPF Office is under progress. As the Upgradation work will involve release of significant structural materials, land has been allotted for not only establishing Casting yard and Work area but also for stacking of released materials. This will help in proper and planned movement of materials between the site and the Station.
In addition, the Conceptual Roof Plan of Cover over shelter and the Platform for the upgraded New Station Building has been finalised. The New elevated Cover has been designed so as to incorporate modern architecture and provide pleasant ambience to the rail passengers, apart from ensuring shelter while on the platforms.
The Ministry of Railways, as part of the “Redevelopment of Major Railway Stations” has identified Secunderabad as one of the stations. Accordingly, work has been awarded for the Upgradation of Secunderabad Railways Station with world-class amenities and modern architecture under EPC mode. The works are targeted for completion by October 2025.
Shri Arun Kumar Jain, General Manager, South Central Railway has said that work on the progress of this critical project is being monitored at every stage. He said that, Secunderabad is the biggest station over the Zone and all care is being taken to ensure that the new Upgraded station will have all modern features for the new age rail passengers. The station is being developed keeping in view the developmental needs for the next 40 years.
