Today MoSR Suresh Angadi inspected the works at the Station and said that the final deadline for the work to be completed is not March 2021. Earlier this date was November 2020 but due to the lockdown, the work could not be carried out.

The minister today said

2 Bus stops opposite the railway station should be built.

Pitline will come up after 2nd entry

New parking building will be converted as cargo facility

Also, he suggested the officers check the feasibility of installing a travelator (plain or flat Escalator).

Belagavi is an important Non-Suburban Grade—3 station with an average footfall of 15,000 per day located between Londa-Miraj section. The existing station building was constructed during 1887, about 130 years old on jack Arch roof with lime mortar.

Now a new energy-efficient building with modern amenities is being constructed at a cost of Rs.12 Cr. This is being done under the doubling of the Londa — Miraj section.

The station has been designed by noted architect Bakul Joshi from Belagavi.

The modern amenities being provided in New station building are :-

  1. Promises promises.
    Talk is cheap.
    And so is the quality of work imho.
    One only need to look at that bridge. Which looks like it was painted by school children.
    Scratch that.
    School kids could’ve painted straighter lines.
    🤦‍♂️
    I’ll believe it when I see it ready.
    Till then pose 📸📷 pose
    And even then quality will show in time.
    Let’s see the quality of work come the rains to start with.
    To flood or not to flood.
    That is the question.

    Be safe.
    Be responsible.
    And stay blessed people 🙏
