South Western Railway (SWR) had invited RFP (Request for Proposal) for Providing architectural and technical consultancy to prepare DPR (Detailed Project Report) for the same.
The technical consultant will prepare a Master plan including Land use, Architecture, and Urban Design for the development of Hubballi Railway Station into a World-Class Passenger terminal.
The consultant will provide Architectural concept plans showing Roads, Parking space, Landscaping, Entry/Exits, etc surrounding the railway station in greater detail.
The selected consultant will also provide Typical elevation of proposed buildings showing all the features by including an isometric view of the buildings and surroundings.
They will also provide at least 3 conceptual alternatives that are equally complete, feasible yet significantly different to provide the Railway board a range of options to choose from.
The Master plan will also include Adequate public spaces such as Parks, Fountains and Green landscaping, Circulating areas, Rest areas, and Drinking water facilities.
The redevelopment will greatly improve the circulation network of Hubballi Railway Station by planning Pedestrian walkways, Subways, Traffic integration, and other facilities.
