The world's longest railway station is now located in Karnataka. According to sources, Hubballi in Indian Railway's South Western Railway (SWR) zone is now listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the longest railway platform in the whole world at Shri Siddharoodha Swamji station.
It is a 1507m-long platform that was constructed as part of the Hubballi yard makeover and would enable the operating of extra trains in the future. It cost around INR 20 crore to build. After the Ministry of Railways disclosed this information, Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his satisfaction with the development and emphasised that it advances the manner in which infrastructure development is prioritised rather than merely extending a platform or any previous records.
Hubballi's Shree Siddharoodha Swamiji Railway Station is a well-known junction in Karnataka and is a significant centre for business and trade in the area of North Karnataka. This train stop is located at a crossroads where trains headed in the directions of Bengaluru (Davanagere side), Hosapete (Gadag side), and Vasco-Da-Gama/Belagavi converge (Londa side).
