The South Central Railway is making efforts to consult a conservation architect to give the same archaeological look to the ‘chajja' which was recently dismantled at the Kacheguda railway station.
Responding to a report in these columns, a South Central Railway spokesperson said that it was planned to carry out roof leakage treatment to the entire station building.
In view of the recent incidents of plaster coming off from the ceiling, extensive chipping of the loose plaster would be done and fresh coating of similar nature carried out.
“The SCR is sparing no efforts to maintain the building in its original historic condition,” he said.
He further stated that conscious efforts were being made to carry out the ongoing expansion works in consonance with the architectural features of the façade.
Earlier in 2005, M/s Urban Arts, conservation architects, were consulted to formalise ‘do's and don'ts' for proper upkeep of the building. As suggested by it granite flooring was done, aluminium doors and windows replaced with appropriate wood work.
As per the advice of the Department of Archaeology and Museums repair of walls and pillars of the station building was carried out with lime plaster, the spokesman said.
