The Railway Division is currently working on the development of Hadapsar station as a satellite terminal. The estimated cost of the project is Rs 135 Crores, and the physical progress of the work is at 30%.
The scope of the work includes the extension of UP and Down platforms for 600 meters. The existing UP goods line will be converted into a common passenger coaching line, and an additional goods line will be built on the UP side. A new station building will also be constructed, along with provisions for a circulating area and parking. Water supply tank arrangements will be made as well.
So far, the extension of Platforms 1, 2, and 3 up to 24 coach length has been completed. However, there are still several works in progress. These include the construction of a general waiting hall, executive lounge, booking office with five counters, and enquiry counters. A cover shed will be built over the platforms, and watering arrangements will be made. Other facilities that are currently being worked on include retiring rooms for passengers, TTE office and restroom, luggage office, clock room, and parcel office, as well as the RPF office and GRP office. Reservation counters, an electric substation building, coolie room, circulating area, parking, road widening, and the dismantling of existing quarters and old station building are also part of the ongoing development work.
The project is expected to be completed within the next year or two, and it aims to improve the overall experience for the passengers who use Hadapsar station.
