Bangalore : India’s first centralized AC railway terminal in India is ready and is just inaugurated. Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal today shared a picture of Bengaluru’s railway station on his Twitter, which you will not believe if it is a railway terminal or an airport terminal. Before the Railway Minister, Indian Railways had also shared its picture.
The special thing about Bangalore railway station is that it is the first such railway station in the country, which is fully AC centralized which means that AC is installed in the entire station as claimed by the Railways. The special thing about this station is that like the airport, a VIP lounge has also been made for passengers, which has been given a luxury touch. Along with this, there is also a digital real time passenger information system on the station.
Sir M. Visvesvaraya Terminal is designed along the lines of Bengaluru Airport. It has a passenger lounge as well as a VIP lounge and dining facility at the top. Along with this, it has its own water recycling plant of 4 lakh liters capacity. Meaning everything is taken care of at the terminal.
Water wastage will be prevented with the help of a water recycling plant. Along with this, adequate parking has also been made at the terminal. According to the railways, there is a provision to park 250 cars as well as 900 two-wheelers, 50 autorickshaws, five BMT buses and 20 taxis.
