Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) mainline railway station in Mumbai is one of the world’s busiest railway stations, serving over one million passengers daily.
Designed by British architect F. W. Stevens and inaugurated in 1887, it was originally known as Victoria Terminus, and today ranks as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is part of a group of 22 Indian railway stations earmarked for modernisation by the Ministry of Railways of the Government of India in a move designed to transform them into international-class stations.
The total site surface area amounts to 32 hectares and is the focus of a feasibility study conducted by AREP Ville to determine the design intention as part of a Public Private Partnership (PPP) project which will remodel the station.
The study will analyse the station’s present layout and activities for its suburban and mainline services and seek to identify needs for its development out to 2030.
