LUCKNOW METRO HITS ANOTHER MILESTONE

Back

 

The Lucknow Metro has hit another milestone on Friday as it starts its commercial run on the North-Souht corridor. The 23-KM North-South corridor stretches from Chaudhary Charan Singh Airport to Munshipulia.  

The inauguration was done by Prime Minister Narendra Modi through video conferencing from Kanpur in the presence of home minister Rajnath Singh and chief minister Yogi Adityanath at Chaudhary Charan Airport Metro station in Lucknow.

With this run, Lucknow enters the list of elite cities having a Metro network of more than 20 KM. Metro will reduce excess stress on city roads and will also extend better mobility. Along with general people, the Metro will also draw in new benefits for markets and businesses.

Apart from an across-the-Gomti ride; commuters will also travel through an underground tunnel for the first time. Above all, the people in Lucknow now have a new means of commuting right there!
