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.

There should be sufficient parking place for four wheelers, two wheelers with the shed & seperate entry & parking for Autos & Taxis. At present everything is messed up & creates panic when the train arrives. There should be official entrance from Goods shed Road. Kindly inform what is the targeted date of completion as per tender clause & who is the executing contractor.
I remember a model kept for display in the railway station when I was small kid. It really never came true. Same with the Sardar Ground construction. There was a banner that state government has allotted 1 Crore Rupees for the construction. Later on they removed it, just constructed an empty building and called it done. You can see it yourself and decide what a wonderful building it is for a cost of 1 Crore rupees. Well Done Government. Let’s see what happens this time.
That a great news…Eagerly awaiting d change
This is indeed a good new however, highlighting this not as critic but just commoner as why i am seeing sudden rise in development planes by our honorary politician which could not be seen since many years.
