“I am associated with several ongoing metro rail projects in the country. But I can say with full confidence that Lucknow Metro Rail Project takes the top slot in terms of good quality of work.” ~ E-Shreedharan
‘Metro Man’ E Shreedharan on Thursday ranked Lucknow Metro Rail as one of the finest projects in terms of quality and speed with which it is taking shape.
Shreedharan who is also a principal advisor to the Uttar Pradesh government on all metro projects said that it is heartening to see that Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) now has an impressive brain-bank in the form of reputed consultants.
East-West-North-South Corridor Status
As per reports, the detailed project report of East-West corridor has been updated and is awaiting approval from the Central government.
On the North-South corridor, tenders for all the sections, except the airport-link, have been awarded for operational preparedness. Hands-on training is being imparted by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation for the same.
Design for Lucknow’s first underground metro station, at Chaudhary Charan Singh Airport, is already finalized and people are looking forward to travelling in the metro starting this December.
Uttar Hamara feels that the Lucknow Metro project is well poised to achieve the stipulated completion deadline and congratulates Akhilesh Yadav and E-Shreedharan for bringing the ‘Lifeline of Lucknow’ into action.
