Facilities that help in ease of movement, are a must on railway stations. However, the two main station at Charbagh in Lucknow are deprived of facilities such as lifts, escalators, etc, for long. But the good news is, that soon both the stations will be redeveloped.
Construction of lifts and escalators on platforms will make it easy for you to walk with your luggage.
Two escalators and a lift have already been installed on Platform 4 and 5, on Chabagh Railway station, and three lifts have been inaugurated between Platform 1 and 5.
A skywalk has also been inaugurated between Durgapuri Metro station and Lucknow Junction, to tackle the crowd during rush hours. These lifts, foot-over bridges and escalators will enable hassle-free movement, most importantly for the senior citizens.
Two more platforms are being constructed at Charbagh railway station as more trains will soon run from here. Two more subways will also be constructed to ease passenger movement.
The iconic Charbagh Railway station in Lucknow is going to turn into a world-class station after the proposed makeover gets completed. The project is believed to be three years long and the Indian Railways is expected to spend around Rs 6000 crores on the remodelling.
Beside Charbagh, Gomti Nagar station is also being redeveloped to cater to around 40,000 passengers.
