Union Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw has recently uploaded the proposed design of Cuttack Railway station on his Twitter account. 

Vaishnaw has asked for public opinion on the proposed design. The design is inspired on the theme of Cuttack Barabati Fort architecture. The Minister has requested the public to give a rating on the design theme. Based on the public rating further course of action would be taken.

The tweet has so far garnered around 500 likes and 89 retweets. Several aware citizens have also given their comments in response to Vaishnaw’s request.

“Can be improved more. Pls share some more pics to have more clarity,” wrote a netizen.

“One humble request. Pl make it user friendly. Easy access to senior citizens & disabled people ! Also most of the people travel with heavy luggage, so if we can implement trolley system like airport. I think that is more important than architecture,” commented another user.

Earlier in January, Vaishnaw had laid the foundation stone for the development of the second entry and circulating area of Cuttack railway station stating that the Ministry is committed to develop the railway station and funds are no constraint for the purpose.
