Kanpur is a city which is growing at a fast rate and for good reason. The city is coming out as a massive hub for youngsters and business professionals alike and it is high time that it got a metro rail transit of its own. Now, it seems as if our cries have been heard because the authorities have decided to get on with Metro work as soon as the polls are complete. Here’s all you need to know about Kanpur’s upcoming metro system.

The plan for Kanpur metro has been on the table for a while now. The studies for implementing the system have commenced and construction of the metros will follow suit. As of now, two corridors of the metro have been confirmed. The first corridor of the metro will connect IIT to Naubasta, covering a stretch of 26km.

The first phase of its construction will connect IIT to Moti Jheel and the second one from Harsh Nagar to Naubasta, making for a total of 33km.

The other proposed corridor will cover a distance of 10 km and connect CSA University to Jarauli. Kanpur metro certainly comes as a boon for the residents of the city as it will connect a number of major areas of the city and reduce travel times. The metro could also help in reducing the vehicular traffic on main city roads thereby lowering the city’s pollution.

While 14 metro stations have been proposed on a 15-km overhead stretch of the first corridor, eight have been planned for the 9-km long underground route. Likewise, in the second corridor of 9 km, five stations will be built on the 4.5-km overhead route and four stations on 4.5-km underground route.

In order to complete the project, the government is investing ₹13,721 Crores into the two corridors and Phase 1 of the metro is said to take ₹9,000 crores of the total. As of now, the goal is to complete work and have the metro running by 2022. Three years is a long time and we hope that in the coming future, we get a chance to take a spin around the metro.
