Rail commuters in Bengaluru have a reason to cheer. A butterfly shaped rail terminal at Byappanahalli in the city is set to offer airport-like facilities to the passengers.
The Indian Railway Stations Development Corporation (IRSDC), along with BBMP, recently unveiled the blueprint of the station. As part of the plan, 30 acres of the total 132 acres of the land will be given to private builders on lease for a period of 99 years.
To be built at an estimated cost of Rs 250 crore, the project is estimated to be completed in three years. The station will be a green building in the shape of a butterfly. It will house roof gardens with integrated courtyards aimed to promote the concept of Garden City.
According to reports, real estate firms are already keen to invest in the project by building hotels, hospitals and service apartments, within the complex.
