Today the foundation stone was laid by Mr. Suresh Angadi for the construction of the new Station Building at Belagavi.
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 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 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 :-
• Concourse for free movement of passengers
• Modern booking counters
• Executive lounge
• Waiting hall for Ladies/Gents
• Food court
• Retiring rooms
In addition to the above it is also planned to widen Platform Number 1 along with improvements to the surface and platform shelter.
Additional Foot Over Bridge connecting Platform-I with Platform-2/3 is also being constructed.
Considering the increased traffic at this station a second entry to Belagavi Station is also planned. This will be taken up after shifting the existing Goods Shed facilities at Belagavi to Sambre Station.
