As part of its ambitious railway station reconstruction initiative, Indian Railways would transform Faridabad Railway Station into a world-class station at a cost of Rs 261.97 crore. Because most trains travelling to and from Delhi use the Faridabad station in Haryana, its redevelopment to become a world-class station will give rail passengers more comfortable travel.

A major upgrade of Faridabad station is planned to provide high-quality facilities to railway passengers, according to Northern Railway, the zone responsible for implementing the project. 

Special Features of this Railway Station:

According to Northern Railway, the station will have features of smart buildings as well as green buildings and provide high-quality facilities.

  • On both sides of the Faridabad Railway Station, there will be two iconic buildings with modern architecture, which will integrate and serve a portion of the city.
  • Both sides of the station buildings will be connected by a well-equipped concourse with a spacious waiting area, waiting lounge, retiring rooms, food court, shopping facility, and other amenities.
  • The station will have help desks for passengers to book tickets, reserve tickets, and access other passenger-related amenities. 
  • The station will be accessible to the disabled through lifts and escalators
  • To ease traffic flow, two-foot over bridges (FOBs) will be built with a width of 12 metres.
  • In addition to having segregated departures and arrivals, the station will also have multi-level car parks (MLCP), which can accommodate 250 four-wheelers and 350 two-wheelers.
  • A seamless flow will be provided by interconnecting the MLCPs, FOBs, and concourses. There will also be integration with local transport at the station. 

The master plan, circulation plan, and station building plan, including the north foot over bridge and the MLCP, have already been approved as part of the station redevelopment plan.

Currently, railway quarters are being dismantled, while offices are being relocated from the present station building to temporary offices.
