LAUNCH OF INDIAN RAILWAY’S STATION RE-DEVELOPMENT PLAN

The Minister of Railways, Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu launched the Station Redevelopment Plan of Indian Railways through video conferencing from New Delhi today. Indian Railways have planned to redevelop 400 key stations (a-1 and A category) in the country. Twenty-three (23) stations have been selected for redevelopment in the First Phase. Kamakhya Railway Station is o­ne of them. The redeveloped stations will provide amenities and services to the passengers in line with world class railway stations. The project would be taken up o­n Public-Private- Partnership (PPP) model without straining railways finances and would follow a transparent bidding process.

A host of developers, officials from Civic Bodies like GMDA, State Government, Smart City Project etc. were present at N. F. Railway Headquarters who were connected with the Railway Board through video link. Before the launch, the General Manager, N. F. Railway Shri Chahatey Ram explained the plan oof redeveloping Kamakhya railway station to the assembled gathering. 

Kamakhya is a junction station which would undergo a major expansionin view of sanctioned Doubling Projects of New Bongaigaon – Goalpara - Kamakhya and New Bongaigaon – Rangiya – Kamakhya and Quadrupling project of 4-line Elevated Track from Kamakhya to New Guwahati. The station would be developed to cater for increased number of passengers with a 40 years perspective. It is expected to handle approximately 40,000 passengers per day from present 6000 passengers per day.

The developer would be provided encumbrance free vacant railway land measuring 50,000 sqm adjoining Kendriya  Vidyalaya,  Maligaon for commercial development. In addition, they may also do commercial development of the air space above the station building. It is expected that the developer would not o­nly fully finance the station development works out of the proceeds of the commercial development but would also generate surplus revenue for the Railways.

Important items planned for development include:

i)An iconic structure of the station with modern state of the art facilities, congestion free entry/ exit to the station premises, segregation of arrival/departure of passengers.

ii) Large concourse area with facilities like waiting area, lounges, wash rooms, cloak rooms, drinking water, ATM, catering, small retail, etc.

iii) Sufficiently large circulating area with provision for drop off, pickup and parking.

iv) Integration of the station with bus and the planned metro railway.

v) Flyover (4-Lane) to connect circulating area o­n both side of the station directly with A.T.Road and a minimum 15 m wide road to connect circulating area o­n the south side of the station with N.H. 37.

Approximate cost of Kamakhya station development works would be Rs. 228 Crores. “Modified Swiss Challenge” method has been adopted for the bidding process. In the first stage of bidding, Eligible bidder from the open market with the best proposal will be selected as the Project Proponent, based o­n rigorous technical and financial evaluation. They will develop the Detailed Project Report (DPR). In the second stage, bids would be invited from the open market again to better the financial premium. In case a higher premium is received, the Project Proponent gets the first right of refusal.

Bidding process would start with the Bid documents becoming available o­n the Indian Railways website from 8th February, 2017.
