There is a single storey building with a four-arched portico in front, with the same design as the previous five stations and a flat roof. At the edge of the station is the train maintenance and repair building, which has two wide doors built for the passages of the trains that need to be maintained and small holes for the smoke from the trains, with a two-sloped roof.
