Singapore-based international design consultant Subarna Jurong has been hired to develop and upgrade the Bhubaneswar railway station.
Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Thursday said that the Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDC), the nodal agency for planning, designing and executing the project, has already roped in the Singapore firm for the project.
He added that the Bhubaneswar multi-modal hub will be developed by the State government with a budget of INR 840 crore within 30 months.
“It is one of the biggest milestones to transform Bhubaneswar railway station into a world class railway station with multi-modal hub. Bhubaneswar Development Authority will involve internationally reputed consultants and showcase Bhubaneswar to the world with a blend of contemporary design and traditional Kalinga architecture,” Patnaik said.
The CM also explained that he expected the project to trigger the development of the planned central business district for Bhubaneswar.
