As a part of the redevelopment initiative, the Railway ministry under Union Minister Piyush Goyal has successfully upgraded the Mathura railway station, offering world-class facilities to the railway passengers. Apart from modern amenities, the facelift of the railway station provides an upgraded look and swanky lounges for the travelling passengers.
The revamped station is provided with new entry and exit gates. The retiring room for the first class railway passengers has been completely reworked, and new comfortable benches are provided. The VIP room of the railway station, as well as the booking hall, have been given a major overhaul. The entrance gate of the station has been given a refreshing look while the circulating area of the station has been renovated.
The Union Railway Minister has directed a major redevelopment work of transforming stations into world-class transit hubs. Two major stations identified are Gandhinagar and Habibganj and their beautification is happening at a breakneck pace. The Railways will be developing these two stations at par with the plush Airports in the country.
Piyush Goyal has asked Indian railways officials to make sure that the redevelopment work of 68 stations should be completed by end of February 2019. Goyal has urged officials to post images of the status of projects on an integrated dashboard to monitor the progress. Some of the other stations that have already undergone major upgrade include Jaipur Junction, Tirupati railway station, Haridwar railway station, and New Delhi railway station.
