Amrit Bharat Station update: Redevelopment of Kollam Junction is in full swing

KollamJunctionis the second busiest railway stationin Kerala in terms of trains handled per day. KollamJunction witnesses an average footfall of 1.6 crore per annum which corresponds to nearly 47000 footfalls daily. In order to handle the ever-increasing passenger volumes, Southern Railway has taken up theredevelopment project of KollamJunction under Amrit Bharat Station Scheme.The revamped station will sport state-of-the- art facilities and infrastructure o­n par with international standards.

Roadmap to Kollam Junction Redevelopment:

The work of Re-development of Kollam Junction Railway Station was awarded as an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract for an amount of RS.361.18 Crore in August 2022 with a completion period of 39 months.

The redevelopment project of Kollam Junction is planned at the Southern side and Northern Side of the existing station building.  Southern and Northern Terminal buildings will help in segregation of operation related administrative and commercial activities from the passenger movement and will host amenities o­n par with world class standards.  The newly developed Kollam junction station will have ample number of lifts and escalators, multi-level car parking, pick up and drop off facilities and dedicated arrival and departure concourse.


The revamped 3-storey Southern Terminal structure, with a built-up area of 22655 sq.m, built to world class standards will be provided with ample space for passenger circulation along with facilities like booking, baggage scanning, waiting halls, information Centre, helpline booths, restaurants, GRP & RPF outposts.


The North terminal building is a G+1 structure with an area of 918 sq.m with Ground floor mainly accommodating functions such as the ticket counter, booking office, retail kiosk, arrival and departure lobby for passengers entering from the Northern side. The Northern side also has dedicated drop – off and pick up points with lanes dedicated for easy taxi and four-wheeler movement. The proposed north terminal building is in close proximity to NH 744 providing an easy access to the terminal building.


The air concourse is an integral part of the proposed Kollam station.  The structure spans across the railway tracks connecting all passenger platforms. The Air Concourse acts as a connecting corridor for both the South and North terminal buildings of the station situated 120 m apart, thus facilitating seamless movement of passengers.

The Air Concourse of 36 m width and area 4,780 sq.m will be constructed to serve the following purposes:

§Segregated movement of arriving and departing passengers. 

§Waiting areas for passengers boarding trains from island platforms. 

§Food & Beverages counters for the passengers. 

§Transfer of passengers to platforms by the help of Vertical Circulation Elements such as Lifts, Escalators and Stairs.

§The concourse will be designed in such a way that passengers would have better visibility of platforms.

§Ease of access to Parking lots, bus bays and pedestrian pathways

Facilities similar to airport concourses will be provided while special provisions have been included to ensure that cargo movement is not causing any inconvenience to the passengers.   


As against 2 Escalators in 3 Platforms presently, it is proposed to provide a total 14nos. of Escalators, out of which 10 nos. will interlink platforms to concourse and the remaining 4 nos. for the Southern Terminal. As against 2 lifts in 2 platforms presently, it is proposed to provide total18 nos. of lifts out of which 8 no’s in platforms, 6nos in South terminal and 2nos. in Northern Terminal.


It is proposed to construct Multi-Level Car Parking (MLCP), which will be a G+4 structure having a total built-up area of 11445 sqm with EV charging facility. There will be a parking facility for 160 cars and 292 Two-wheelers. The circulating area at South Terminal will have a wide road with access to Multi level car parking. The entry and exit roads are planned with drop off, drop-in, pick-up points etc. for free movement of vehicles, pedestrians etc.Aseparate Bus Bay is also planned
