Roadmap to Redevelopment

Two terminal buildings are proposed to be constructed, o­ne each at the Eastern and Northern side.  The architecture of the terminals will reflect contemporary adaptation of the traditional temple architecture of Rameswaram temple. 

 Eastern Terminal Building

Proposed East Terminal Building, with a total built up area of 7158 sq.m, is planned as a two-storey structure; however the foundation will be made for G+6 structure to cater to future requirements. This terminal building will provide direct access at ground level to Platform 1, 2 and 3 as existing today. o­nly Platform no. 4 requires usage of Foot over bridge. The eastern side terminal building will have a roof plaza linking access to Platform no.4 and proposed platform no.5 and forecourt area in front of the station building. 2 Nos. of Escalators and 4 Nos. of lifts are proposed in the Forecourt and roof plaza area for convenience of passengers. The building is designed to provide hassle free movement of passengers as there will be segregation of departure and arrival passengers.

The terminal will house a booking office, waiting areas for the passengers, toilets, railway office spaces and space for commercial activities. The Roof Plaza and Concourse to Platform 4 & 5 will facilitate seamless movement of passengers to various platforms. 


A spacious Forecourt,  circulating area being redeveloped independently for arrival and departure, in front of the Eastern terminal building will be dedicated for pedestrians and drop off area for vehicles. This will allow seamless movement of passengers and road vehicles. Forecourt proposed with roof shelter will act as a break out space and waiting area for passengers and pilgrims that come in groups and thus reduce the gathering and congestion in the platform area.     The arrival forecourt at the terminal will sport dedicated areas for pickup by auto/ taxi etc. The architecture of arrival and departure forecourt will reflect the corridors of Ramanathaswamy temple.

Northern Terminal

The Northern Terminal will be a single-storey structure and planned exclusively for administration offices and offices for departments concerned with train operations.

Revamping of existing platforms

The existing platforms are planned for a complete revamp to match the aesthetics and ambience of the new station buildings  

Further, dedicated parking facilities, RPF block, New substation building with rest rooms, Staff quarters and New Parcel office with separate entry duly segregating passenger movements are also proposed to be constructed.
