The front facade of the huge, towering new KSRTC central bus station building (still under construction) at Thampanoor, Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala. The terminal complex is the biggest bus station in Kerala and is also the headquarters and central offices of the Kerala State Transport Corporation (KSRTC). The ground floor of the station handles bus arrivals and departures with 30 departure bus bays and 5 arrival bays capable of handling upto 3000 bus schedules a day, most of them being KSRTC’s long distance schedules, all which originate and depart from here. The building itself has 12 stories and can house a multiplex, food courts, a number of government offices, a convention center and also has two 5 story multlevel parking centers for 350 cars and 400 two wheelers. There was an old, overcrowded crumbling bus station building that was pulled down to construct this behemoth in its place. Really an amazing development!
