Ambala divisional railway station will be completely rebuilt, the Shimla station—part of a Unesco world heritage site—will be refurbished
The northern railway planning board has already approved the proposal with regard to the Ambala railway station and the process is on for the Shimla station.
In fact, after seeing the presentation regarding the Shimla railway station, Union railway minister Piyush Goyal has given his nod, said sources, adding that it will now be shown to the board on Tuesday for procedural approval.
The project coordinator and CCA dean academics, Sohan Lal Saharan, said: “The Union ministry had itself approached the college for rebuilding and refurbishing the two important railway stations in the north of Delhi. The first phase of rebuilding the Ambala railway station will begin in a month after approvals.”
The first phase will include upgrading the toilets, waiting rooms and platforms besides setting up solid waste management system in the new block. CCA students have visited the station to prepare sketches and figure out the spots to install dustbins and drinking water kiosks.
“The second and third phases will include rebuilding the facade,” said Saharan.
