Top 5 Ways Lucknow is Going to Change for Better!

From the old town known for kebabs and Nawabs to the real estate hub of North India and soon to be an IT city, Lucknow has transformed immensely in the last 5 years. From small parks to the splendid Janeswar Mishra Park and from the markets of Aminabad, Nakhaas and Chowk Bazaars to the city with several high-end malls, Lucknow has grown a lot.

Lucknow Metro:

With the construction of rapid transit system called Lucknow Metro, the city will have an eco-friendly ambiance and people will be saved from traffic jams and inconvenience of changing autos. It is estimated to be the fastest and the most expensive built metro systems in the world.

Lucknow Metro will have 2 routes one from East to West and another from North to South. The North-South corridor is from Airport to Indira Nagar with a total length of about 23 Kilometers. The East-West corridor begins at Railway Station and ends at Vasant Kunj. Both these lines will intersect at Railway Station. There will be an extension line from Indira Nagar to Gomtinagar. The first phase of the project is expected to start soon (August ’17 tentatively).

Lucknow-Agra Expressway:

This 302 kilometer long express highway has brought city of Taj Mahal, Agra and City of Nawabs, Lucknow closest. Not only that this has brought  the state of Uttar Pradesh to the limelight for having the largest Green Expressway in the country, the project has actually led to the convenience of many travelling between Agra and Lucknow. 

Lucknow IT City:

The city of Nawabs has come of age. The city which is well-known for its heritage will have a make-over. It will have an IT city soon which is reported to be completed and functional in a couple of months.

Gomti Riverfront:

Similar to the London Eye where you can have a bird’s eye view of the entire city, Lucknow will soon see a Giant Ferris wheel at the Gomti Riverfront. Lamp posts and fountains have already been installed at the site and attracting a huge crowd. So be ready to have a spectacular view of the city as it is said to be operational in a few months from now.


Gone will be the days of Aminabad and Chowk shopping soon once Shaan-E-Awadh which is near Shaheed Path will open up. This is a 56 acres ultra-chic shopping cum multi functional hub that will have all the biggest brands from all across the globe. This commercial centre at Gomti Nagar is all set to receive a huge crowd. Are shopaholics listening!
