Very nice to see such developments
When returning from Gangavathi, I came to Ballari. I was surprised to see the station being painted afresh. Also some floral decoration and carpet, potted plants. Seems some function took place that day. Then I learnt it was GM inspection. Also inauguration of the renovated station.
The station building is of British era. The PF 1 is in a enclosure. That structure is left as it is but other modern renovations have happened like new granite flooring. TBs. FoB, Roofing.etc. But what caught my eye was the paintings of Rajdhani livery WAP
1. The famous Stone Chariot of Hampi. TB Dam etc... But to me the best was the painting of the front facade of the station itself.
Also the front entrance had intricate wooden carving, which I forgot to click.
The station now sports an ancient look with good modern facilities. Pretty good work by UBL division - known only to renovate UBL.
