*What is a satellite railway station? How
does it differ from the normal railway
A satellite town or satellite city is a concept in urban
that refers essentially to smaller metropolitan
areas which are located somewhat near to, but are mostly
independent of larger metropolitan areas.
Similarly, a satellite railway station is like any railway
Station. The only difference is the location.
While a main railway station is amidst the city or at a busy
place in the city, satellite stations are little far, in
decongested areas so that the trains can terminate and
originate from the station without congesting the main
Decades back, many cities started to build satellite railway
stations but sooner they too became saturated with trains
and started serving as main station. Examples are Anand
Vihar Terminus in Delhi, Rajendra Nagar Terminus in Patna,
Kolkata Terminus etc.
Indian Railways are now planning to make more satellite
stations on the lines of the airports in cities like Bengaluru
and Hyderabad which are quite far from the cities(thus it
ease the traffic towards them and the city), though
stations will not be as far from the city. For example: SCR is
planning to develop Moula Ali and Nagulapally stations at
10-25 km distance from 3 of the Hyderabad main stations
as satellite stations. These stations will be considered for
unloading of goods trains coming from North and West
directions respectively thus easing the traffic at
Secunderabad and other suburban station a little
There is a need for integrated planning for transport
management. Integrated approach road-rail integration
etc. If we have proper integrated approach then it will be
good for ambitious smart city projects as good
transportation is crucial for a smart city. Hence in most of
the metros satellite terminals will be developed in the
nearby cities to divert the rail as well as road traffic to ease
pressure on the bus stations.
