Located in India, Kolkata Metro Railway East-West Corridor was designed by Lee Harris Pomeroy Architects, Construction is currently underway on an immense infrastructure project in India. Lee Harris Pomeroy Architects composed the plans for the Kolkata Metro Railway East-West Corridor to formulate a complex design stretching a total route length of 14.67km – 8km of which are underground.
Costing €760m in total, the Metro Corridor is comprised of six underground stations, starting at Howrah Maidan, Howrah Station, Mahakaran, Central Station, Sealdah Station and ending with Phool Bagan, the last station before the alignment is elevated. Their work also included the design of entry pavilions, support structures, and development of adjacent properties. The design stuck rigidly to the brief, ‘conforming to the functioning of the operation of the trains’, featuring lightweight, airy and transparent pavilions suited to the Kolkata climate, maximising light and air to the underground entryways. All platforms will be air conditioned to ensure passenger comfort.
