After creating waves in the capital of India i.e. Delhi, the Metro Rail is all set to introduce elegance in the way people travel across different parts of the capital of Uttar Pradesh i.e. Lucknow. Having introduced the matter in his budget speech for the year 2013-14, the current chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, Akhilesh Yadav, believes the Lucknow Metro Rail Project to be an impressive means of rendering a world-class transportation system that is fast, safe, reliable and undoubtedly cost-efficient. To allow Lucknow residents and visitors enjoy ultimate ease of travelling in and around the city, the Government of Uttar Pradesh has incorporated a SPV/Entity in the form of a firm called Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation Limited.
Chaired by PM Modi, the Cabinet has approved the construction of first phase of the Metro Rail Project in Lucknow. The estimated cost of this project is Rs 6,928 crore. This Lucknow Metro Rail Project Phase1-A will cover a total distance of 22.878 km between Chowdhary Charan Singh Airport and Munshi Pulia with up to 22 stations. While the cost of this project would be supported by the Centre, it would be implemented by LMRC (Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation) which would further be reconstituted into a 50:50 jointly owned firm of the Uttar Pradesh Government and the Centre. It is important to note that the Lucknow Metro Rail Project would come under the legal framework of Metro Railways (Construction of Works) Act 1978; the Metro Railways (Operation and Maintenance) Act 2002 and the Railways Act, 1989; all three of which are being amended on a regular basis. With Lucknow witnessing a rapid growth in its vehicular population, the inception of Metro Rail will serve as a great.
