Indian Railways to put up LED lights at CST subway after installing glass roof



The new lighting arrangements are to complement the glass roofs which have recently been fitted to the subway entrances. The lighting arrangements and railings are expected to be completed in the next three months. Meanwhile, out of the four entrances, three have already got the glass roofs, while for the one towards the station platform, work will be completed this month

The subway right outside the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CST) will now get LED lightings on all its four entrances. The new lighting arrangements are to complement the glass roofs which have recently been fitted to the subway entrances. The lighting arrangements and railings are expected to be completed in the next three months. Meanwhile, out of the four entrances, three have already got the glass roofs, while for the one towards the station platform, work will be completed this month.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has replaced the old black roofs at the subway entrances to give it a modern look. The motive was also to complement the subway with the CST building and BMC headquarters — the two heritage buildings, which are illuminated with colourful lights every evening. The new lighting arrangement at the subway entrances will make it more visually appealing.

“The CST subway was constructed 17 years ago and the black fibre roof did not go well with the heritage buildings and the selfie point. Thus, we decided to replace it with toughened glass covers that will make the subway attractive from outside and brighter from inside,” said Kiran Dighavkar, Assistant Municipal Commissioner, A ward.

The revamp of the subway entrances is part of a project undertaken by the BMC to beautify iconic locations across the city. The new look of the subway has also been lauded by commuters. “The CST subway is not only used by railway commuters, but also by pedestrians to cross the busy CST junction,” said Piyusha Shete, a college student.
