सितंबर में बंद होगा प्लेटफार्म नं.1 उधना से चलेंगी सूरत की गाड़ियां
Bhaskar News | May 21,2017 07:28 IST
सूरत. पश्चिम रेल मुंबई डिवीजन के बड़े स्टेशनों में से एक सूरत रेलवे स्टेशन को 3000 करोड़ की लागत से वर्ल्ड क्लास बनाने का कार्य इस वर्ष दिवाली से पहले शुरू होने जा रहा है। पुनर्विकास निर्माण कार्य के दौरान प्लेटफॉर्म प्रभावित होंगे और जरूरत पड़ने पर चार में से किसी एक प्लेटफॉर्म को बंद किया जाएगा।

इससे गाड़ियों के ट्रैफिक को 1 महीने के लिए शिफ्ट भी किया जाएगा। गौरतलब है कि गांधीनगर रेलवे स्टेशन को वर्ल्डक्लास बनाने की कवायद शुरू हो चुकी है।

उधना से होगा डायवर्जन
- पश्चिम रेल मुंबई डिवीजन के मंडल रेल प्रबंधक मुकुल जैन ने दैनिक भास्कर से बातचीत में बताया कि सूरत रेलवे स्टेशन पर मल्टी स्टोर बनाए जाएंगे जिसके पिलर की नींव डाली जाएगी।
- संबंधित प्लेटफॉर्म एक उस अवधि तक बंद रहेगा। इसके अलावा अन्य प्लेटफॉर्म की ट्रैफिक बरकरार रहे उसके लिए मॉनिटरिंग टीम तैयार करेंगे।

बाईपास ट्रेनों का प्लान फेज के अनुसार बनाएंगे
- स्टेशन के पुनर्विकास निर्माण कार्य के दौरान सूरत स्टेशन के प्लेटफॉर्म प्रभावित होंगे,
- पश्चिम रेल प्रशासन ने प्रथम फेज में निर्माण अवधि तक सूरत में रुकने वाली गाड़ियों और ओरिजनेटिंग, टर्मिनेट होने वाली गाड़ियों को उधना स्टेशन पर एक महीने तक हाॅल्ट देने की योजना बनाई है।
- पश्चिम रेल अधिकारियों ने बताया कि सूरत रेलवे स्टेशन का पुनर्विकास किस तरह से होना है, फेज वाइज विवरण मिल जाने के बाद हम बाईपास गाड़ियों के ट्रैफिक का डायवर्जन प्लान बनाएंगे। सूरत से रोजाना 198 ट्रेनें गुजरती हैं।

61 मंजिला बिल्डिंग बनेगी स्टेशन के लिए
- मुंबई डिवीजन के चार बड़े स्टेशनों को एयरपोर्ट की तर्ज पर विकसित किया जाएगा। इसमें मुंबई सेन्ट्रल ,बांद्रा टर्मिनस ,बोरीवली और सूरत रेलवे स्टेशन शामिल है।
- टेंडरिंग प्रोसेस शुरू किया गया है। इसमें बोरीवली स्टेशन का निर्माण शुरू भी हो चुका है। सूरत में स्टेशन को मल्टी मॉडल ट्रांसपोर्ट हब के रूप में विकसित किया जाने का मॉडल तैयार किया गया है।
- भारतीय रेलवे स्टेशन विकास निगम लिमिटेड (आईआरएसडीसीएल) एवं रेल भूमि विकास प्राधिकरण (आरएलडीए) मिलकर इन दोनों ही स्टेशनों को विकसित करेंगे।

GANDHINAGAR: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said his government is focused on development of railways shedding earlier practices wherein the ministry was used as a "bargaining tool" by the main ruling party to "distribute trophies to its allies".
"The railway was left to its fate in earlier regimes. The allies of main political party used to demand the railway ministry to join the government. The party which came to power at Centre also used the railway ministry as a bargaining tool to distribute trophies to its allies. This is a bitter truth," he said.
"Leaders

from political parties who got the control of the railways were not interested in (development of) railways and I need not say what they were interested in," PM Modi said.
The Prime Minister today laid the foundation stone for redevelopment of Gandhinagar railway station, which will get a face-lift at a cost of Rs. 250 crore and will have a 300-room five star hotel built atop.
"My government has given priority to railways... it should expand, it should be developed, get modernised and it should bring a qualitative change in the lives of common people.
"We have tried to do this in the last two years and five months. We have increased the budget of railways to double of what it was," he said.
"PM Modi listed various works done by his government to develop railways and said the pace of doubling of railway tracks has increased, besides speeding up of gauge conversion and electrification of lines.
He said free WiFi has been provided at railway stations.
The Central government is working to increase speed of trains and also striving to bring in global technology to make railways safer, as "safety is of greatest concern", PM Modi said.
"In developed countries, 70 per cent goods transportation is carried out by railways while rest by roads. However in India, 15 to 20 per cent is through railways while 70 to 80 per cent is by roads. Goods tend to get costlier when transported by roads. We are stressing on development of freight corridors," he said.
The Prime Minister also said that railway stations located in cities can be developed by constructing high-rise buildings atop them.

and Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to perform its ground breaking ceremony on January 9, a top official said.
As part of the redevelopment, there is a plan to build a five-star hotel on top of the railway station to accommodate delegates coming here to attend the Vibrant Summits held every two years.
“The project will commence as soon as Prime Minister Narendra Modi performs ground breaking ceremony at the railway station on January 9, a day before the inauguration of 8th edition of the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit at Mahatma Mandir near the railway station,” Gujarat Chief Secretary, J N Singh said in a press conference today.
State Chief Minister Vijay Rupani has already given his go-ahead for the formation of a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) for the station re-development project, he added.
"The total cost of the project is estimated at Rs 250 crore. We want to complete the entire project, including the five-star hotel, before the next Vibrant Summit of 2019, so that delegates can be provided with world-class stay in Gandhinagar,” said Singh.
The station is being developed through the SPV between Government of Gujarat and Indian Railway Stations Development Corporation Ltd (IRSDC). The proposed name of the SPV is Gandhinagar Railway & Development Corporation Ltd (GARUD), the official said.
“The project includes redevelopment of the railway station and construction of a 300-room five star hotel in the airspace above the railway track. The hotel will have three towers. Total height of the hotel will be around 65 meters, highest in state capital,” Singh said.
Providing details about the financial components of the SPV, Additional Chief Secretary, Industries and Mines, P K Taneja told reporters that the state government will hold the majority share with 74 per cent, while Ministry of Railways will hold 26 per cent.
“Both, the Railway Ministry as well as Gujarat Government, will invest Rs 50 crore each, while we will take loan of Rs 120 crore to complete the project. Since the hotel will be just 10 kms away from Ahmedabad airport, we expect that it will get a very good response from business delegates and other tourists upon completion,” Taneja said.

A five star hotel on the top of Rly station is like my 15 year old dream partially coming true. I had dreamt of a budget and a decent hotel at all the important stations of IR for (lower/Middle/upper middle class people) who travel by rail, and not a 5 star one.
.
Such hotels can be constructed at atleast 500 stations over IR network and can give IR an annual revenue in multiple of Rs 10,000 Crore, if properly implemented.
.

Budget hotel should also be constructed at Gandhi nagar so that a large number of people can be benefited.
