The New Krishnarajapuram (KR Puram) Railway Station Building

The new Krishnarajapuram (KR Puram) railway station building entrance on Platform 4 facing the Ring Road,  a bit before the current “entrance” at the junction under the hanging bridge. Very discreetly SWR constructed this in a time span of 6 months, and will be the official main entrance to the station from now on. As of now the official station building is on the other side on PF1 facing a narrow and crowded street. KJM was once a quaint little station on the outskirts of the city where only a few passenger trains stopped, but with the growth of the city and the construction of the outer ring road, it is now a major railway station very much inside the city and one of its gateways where all trains stop and thousands of people pass through everyday, making the KR Puram Railway Station junction a notoriously massive traffic bottleneck, probably the biggest in the city. However, there is no parking space here nor space for autos and pedestrians and the approach road is too narrow! I hope they will solve all these problems. The current “entrance” at the ring road junction will will hopefully be closed once this is officially opened. Here is the location.
