To kick-start the redevelopment project of Bhopal railway station, the Bhopal rail division has initiated installation of elevators to make the railway station specially-abled and senior citizen friendly. This is being done before private investors take over the revamping process.

The elevators will be now present on every platform except platform 2 and 3. Stairs on one side of the old and new footover bridges is being replaced by elevators. The construction work for the elevators is already completed for platforms 4 and 5 and it is installed on the new bridge. Construction has started on platform number 6 on the old as well as new bridge.

There will be no elevators on platform 2 and 3 as the distance between the track and bridge is not sufficient to allow an elevator to function, an engineer working on the project said."Elevators are being installed keeping in mind the requirements of specially-abled and senior citizens. All the platforms will be well connected now," said IA Siddiqui, spokesperson for Bhopal rail division.
