Arup was selected, in consortium with Terry Farrell and Partners and SMEC, to redevelop New Delhi Railway Station in India as an urban icon for a modern, vibrant city.
New Delhi Station is the first station within the Ministry of Railways’ World-class Station programme, as identified in the Government’s 11th five-year plan for infrastructure improvement on India’s railways.
The station will be redeveloped into a modern one of world class. Arup is preparing the masterplan and concept layout plan for the redevelopment of the station and its adjacent 86 hectares. The station will offer superior services for passengers, train operations and maintenance, provide new community space and better transport arrangements for the public and house modern office space, high-quality accommodation and facilities for railway staff.
On completion, the station will include 18 platforms and handle in excess of 500,000 passengers per day.
Implementation of the project will be phased so that existing operations can be maintained. The project will be procured under a public/private partnership model to provide commercial development opportunities and facilitate an optimal revenue model for developers.
