TIRUPATI: The long-pending project to develop the Tirupati railway with world class amenities will soon take off. The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD) has already decided to hand over a land parcel to the railways to take up the modernisation programme. Incidentally, the Union urban development ministry and the railway ministry have agreed to remodel the important railway station in a bid to boost spiritual tourism in the city.
Though Tirupati is classified as an A-1category railway station it needs a facelift. About 70,000 pilgrims visit Tirupati every day and on weekends the rush increases to about one lakh. A majority of the pilgrims arriving in Tirupati get down at the local railway station. Tirupati is one of the three cities in Andhra
Pradesh selected for a complete facelift under the smart cities programme. In tune with the smart cities programme, the railways too has decided to develop the Tirupati station.
Earlier, this month the TTD chairman Ch Krishnamurthy called on Union minister of railways Suresh Prabhu and urged him to develop the city railway station. He also expressed the TTD's readiness to extend support to the railways in the development of the station.
