DPR being prepared for developing Palakkad rail junction
-------------------------------------------------- --------------------
With the Union government allocating Rs. 20 crore for developing Palakkad Railway Junction into a world-class transit hub, the engineering wing of Southern Railway has begun preparing a detailed project report (DPR) for the work.
A bypass road linking the station with the Palakkad-Kozhikode national highway is among the
major suggestions in the DPR.
Now, the busy railway junction is accessible only through a one-km narrow road passing through a busy commercial area.
Report in a month
The report will be submitted to the Railway Board for final approval within a month and the work will be initiated soon after. The refurbished entrance will reflect the cultural traditions of the district. The main building will also be altered, making it more attractive and reflecting the the local culture.
The Railway Ministry stipulates that all the 90 stations that will be developed into world-class standards should showcase the local culture and history in the facade.
Four in State
Ernakulam Junction, Kozhikode, and Kottayam railway stations are the other stations in Kerala State which are being developed into world-class transit hubs along with 86 other stations in other States.
A number of passenger amenities, including CCTV cameras, digital display boards, free internet connectivity, modular water kiosks, water dispensing units, lifts, escalators, stainless steel benches, and modular catering kiosks will be part of the developed stations. All the platforms will have lifts and elevators. Retiring rooms with modern amenities, and ramps and other facilities for differently abled will also be arranged.
Facilities at the railway hospital near the Palakkad Junction will also be improved. A satellite track maintenance machine depot to facilitate fully mechanised track repairing and cleaning in the entire Palakkad division will also be set up. Presently, track maintenance machines are sourced by the division from Chennai. Southern Railway has also initiated the process of developing the food plaza at Palakkad Junction by adding nine more outlets, including one by Kudumbasree.
