Indian Railways has shared glimpses of the Sir M Visvesvaraya Railway Terminal built with modern facilities and architecture and billed as the "Airport-like station" by the Railway Ministry.
Indian Railways is working on revamping multiple railway stations to make them more modern and up to date. In the list of such stations, Bengaluru's Sir M. Visvesvaraya Railway Terminal has been added. The railway station has been designed as one of the most modern railway stations in the country. Now, the railways have shared glimpses of the new station with more modern facilities for the convenience of the passengers. It is to be noted that the new design and architecture have been implemented both inside and out of the station, focused on better looks and
improved functionality.
The video of the Sir M. Visvesvaraya Railway Terminal was shared by the official Twitter handle of the Ministry of Railways with the caption calling the station "Modern, World-Class." The video also calls it the "Airport like station." The video starts by showing the national flag placed outside the station and moves on to show the details and features of the station.
Modern, World-Class, Airport-Like: Sir M. Visvesvaraya Railway Terminal, Bengaluru
The 4,200 square metre terminal cost Rs 314 crore to build by Indian Railways. Seven platforms, a lobby with full air conditioning, parking for 900 two-wheelers and 250 four-wheelers, and other notable features and services have led to comparisons to Kempegowda International Airport.
The Sir M. Visvesvaraya Railway Terminal also boasts the title of being the first station in India to have a centralised air conditioning system. Furthermore, to facilitate the passengers, the station also gets premium lounges.
In Bengaluru, the airport-like Sir M Visvesvaraya Railway Terminal was opened by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The terminal had been prepared since 2020, but due to Covid-19 and a lack of connecting roads, the opening was delayed. On June 6, the Karnataka government allowed the general public access. The terminal and other railway infrastructure projects were launched by Modi during his two-day tour to the state.

Seamless access to the newly opened Sir M. Visvesvaraya Terminal at Baiyappanahalli got a shot in the arm with South Western Railway (SWR) giving in-principle approval for an elevated rotary flyover at IOC junction that has been envisaged by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP).
Almost a year ago, when Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw inspected the terminal, BBMP officials had briefed him about the project as a long-term measure for connecting the terminal with various roads. The SWR and the BBMP held multiple rounds of the meetings to clear the decks for the project. The project has been proposed to provide easy access to the terminal from Kammanahalli Main Road, Maruthi Sevanagar, and other areas.
Prahalad, chief engineer (Road and Infrastructure), BBMP, said, “Due to the presence of railway lines at the junction, the only solution is to build an elevated rotary flyover. Other than people living in the localities nearby, passengers travelling to the terminal will be benefited as we are providing access to the terminal as well.” He said when the project was conceptualised, it was estimated to cost ₹260 crore, but the revised estimation is likely to touch ₹300 crore.
From Old Madras Road side, the authorities have built a railway overbridge that was opened in January. At present, a two-lane road is available from Old Madras Road to the terminal.
Divisional Railway Manager of Bengaluru Division Shyam Singh said, “In principle, we have given consent to the BBMP. The civic body will come out with a detailed plan for the project. The proposed flyover will be much wider and will benefit vehicles coming from multiple directions.”
The SWR has built the terminal with various amenities to decongest the Yeshwantpur and KSR Bengaluru railway stations by running 32 long-distance trains from the point.
The SWR started commercial operations from the terminal in the first week of June. The services were introduced with three pairs of long-distance trains and now there are close to 20 pairs. Barring this, the SWR is also running local trains from the point to Majestic, Bangarpet and others. The newly opened station witnessed a footfall of 1,000 to 1,500 passengers (both boarding and deboarding), and the number is expected to increase in the coming days. Barring passengers, the station is also attracting visitors who are buying platform tickets to get a glimpse of of it.
Passengers who are relying on public transport are having a tough time reaching the terminal. “Unlike other railway stations in the city, this new station is located in an interior place. Bus services are limited to the place and people have to depend on autos or taxis,” said a passenger. The BMTC runs feeder services to the terminal from Benniganahalli, Channasandra, and various points on the Outer Ring Road.
In the past, both the SWR and the BBMP have come under attack for not implementing road infrastructure projects before the opening of the terminal, instead coming up with plans after the completion of the project which was built at cost of ₹314 crore.
SWR decided to change the terminal of eight pairs of trains from Yeshwantpur/Cantonment stations to Sir MV terminal at Byappanahalli. They are: 12863/12864 Howrah-Yeshwantpur-Hosur (daily), 22863/22864 Howrah-Yeshwantpur (weekly), 12245/12246 Howrah-Yeshwantpur (five days), 12552/12551 Kamakhya-Yeshwantpur (weekly), 12510/12509 Guwahati-Cantonment (tri-weekly), 22351/22352 Patliputra-Yeshwantpur (weekly), 12504/12503 Agartala- Cantonment (weekly), 12253/12254 Yeshwantpur-Bhagalpur (weekly). tnn

The South Western Railway (SWR) will run more train services from Sir M. Visvesvaraya Terminal. As per the decision, eight more long distance trains will be shifted to the new terminal from Yeshwanthpur and Cantonment.
The new trains will be operated from SMVB to Howrah, Kamakhya, Pataliputra, Agartala, Bhagalpur and other locations. The services will be introduced on August 10. The new trains services shifted to Baiyappanahalli terminal include weekly, five days in a week and a daily. 
Chief Public Relations officer of the SWR Aneesh Hegde told The Hindu that with the
new addition of services, a total of 17 pairs of long distance trains will be operated from the point. Barring these trains, the SWR is also operating MEMU trains from the point.
The commercial operations from the new terminal started in June. The official said 32 pairs of services were planned from the point.
Divisional Railway Manager Shyam Singh said, “The train services from the new terminal have been well received from the passengers. We have been receiving good response from the general public and they are happy with the infrastructure provided at the terminal.”
