The Lucknow Metro today successfully completed a trial run on the remaining section of its North-South corridor and it is likely to become operational by next month.
The Managing Director of the LMRC, Kumar Keshav said, “We today completed the successful trial run of the remaining section of the North-South corridor. The work is likely to be completed by February, much ahead of the initial deadline of April 2019,”
The 23 kilometer long stretch will have 21 metro stations and the maximum fare will be Rs 60.
Presently, it takes about 90 minutes to reach from Munshipulia to the airport, but once the route is operational, the distance will be covered in 40 minutes and people would get a respite from traffic congestion as well, the MD said in a press release.
Keshav said, “Construction of Metro in a city like Lucknow has been a challenge in itself. In a period of less than 3 years, the LMRC has created a world record and has earned the distinction of being the fastest Metro (project) which has ever been implemented so far.”
He added,”The early operations of the metro corridor will be our New Year gift to the city of Lucknow.”
