Around 50 makeshift structures near the Railway Station were removed in an eviction drive on Wednesday, which was initiated by the Bhubaneshwar Municipal Corporation (BMC).
Temporary structures, lining on both sides of the road from Railway Station to Master Canteen, were removed by BMC. The structures included fruit kiosks, makeshift hotels and small fast food stalls.
The BMC had proposed to clean the area near the Railway station recently. But the eviction drive could not be carried out due to the delay in sanction of police force.
The approach roads to the station are now wide enough for rail commuters to make their way to the station easily. They had complained that the shops had made it difficult for them to reach the station.
