Guwahati Railway Station is all set to get a major facelift from the Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR).
The Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) is undertaking a renovation project to improve the circulating area, waiting rooms, platforms, and the booking and enquiry offices.
Twelve new retiring rooms will be constructed, while the existing retiring rooms and dormitory will be renovated along with seating arrangement and other ancillary works in association with the Ministry of Tourism.
Renovation will be carried out at six existing waiting halls, nine existing retiring rooms and one dormitory. Cloak room facilities will be provided, with special emphasis on individual lock facilities for tourists.
NFR is working to improve the circulating area so as to ensure proper entry and exit of vehicles. Repair of the entry and exit roads to the station is part of the project.
The renovation plan also involves providing 152 stainless steel benches at 19 locations in the platforms, besides LED lighting in the circulating area.
The Guwahati Railway Station is the biggest in the North East and receives a footfall of over 40,000 passengers every day. On an average, at least 35-40 long-distance trains pass through the station
