Remodelling work commenced in November 2013 to reduce the width of the platforms, enabling an additional centre track to be added between the existing up and down lines for use by non-stop trains.[2] The newly-added centre track is scheduled to be brought into use from the start of the revised timetable on 25 March 2017.[3]

Passenger statistics[edit]

In fiscal 2017, the station was used by an average of 31,494 passengers daily.[4]
