East Terminal Building


The proposed East Terminal building is a G+2 structure with an area of 22,576 sq.m (excluding concourse area). The entrance façade of the station building would depict the vernacular architectural character of the region. The ground floor is planned to provide for clutter free movement with a dedicated arrival and departure area equipped with world-class passenger facilities like toilets, cloak room, baby care, feeding room, help desk, commercial outlets and kiosk.  The first floor will accommodate the passenger waiting lounges for the train clubbed with facilities like restaurants, retail commerce and toilets. The second floor of the East terminal building is proposed for commercial activity. 


Air Concourse


The main feature of the first floor of East Terminal is the air concourse which would facilitate hassle-free movement of passengers to their respective platforms. For easy accessibility from concourse to respective platforms, two pairs of escalators, two lifts and four staircases to each platform will be provided.  This air concourse is an integral part of the station and interlinks the two terminal buildings approximately 110 m apart thus ensuring seamless movement of passengers.  The concourses will accommodate the passenger amenities, waiting area from where passengers would have better visibility of platforms.


West Terminal


The existing secondary West terminal buildingwill be renovated to include the facilities of a world class station. The two-storey building will be developed to include the departure / Arrival forecourt, various railway offices ,ticketing counters and other passenger amenities.

Multi-level Parking facilities


In order to cater the existing and future demand for vehicular parking, 3 parking structures are envisaged in the redevelopment project, which are:

2.      East Side Multilevel Two-Wheeler Parking Building-G+3 building-2,822 sq.m

3.      West Side Multilevel Car Parking Building- G+1 building- 2,580 sq.m


Besides, in order to facilitate safe transfer of passengers to and from the Periyar Bus Terminal, a subway connecting the basement of the bus terminal and the railway premises is envisaged.The main objective is to segregate departure and arrival corridors and to facilitate smooth traffic flow through inter-modal connectivity. Approach roads are planned for better movement of passenger vehicles.

Madurai station redevelopment work,  once completed, will place it o­n the map of world class stations.
