UPMRC puts Kanpur Metro's first pillar cap; work on high speed mode

UPMRC has been eyeing to finish the Kanpur Metro route way before the set deadline to beat its own record

UPMRC has been taking Kanpur Metro's construction work further with a kind of focus and a dedication that is laudable. The metro corporation has set out with the goal to break Lucknow Metro's record, establishing Kanpur Metro as the fastest developed metro route. The Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation (UPMRC) has been making tremendous efforts in the same direction. To achieve the same, Kanpur Metro was successful in putting the first pillar cap on its IIT-Motijheel route about a week ago.


UPMRC on Monday, 2nd March, was successful in placing the first pillar cap of its maiden route, three months ahead of its set schedule!

What's the update?

The metro corporation has ensured that the construction of Kanpur metro's first route ensues at a fast pace. Construction on the metro route had started last year in December and within the time, Kanpur Metro has successfully constructed a Depot station, several pillar and now finally, the route's first pillar cap.

After putting Kanpur Metro's first pillar cap, the corporation aims to fasttrack the work on the metro route and get it ready ahead of time. The pillar caps are pivotal for the metro route as U girders will be later put on these caps. UPMRC MD, Kumar Keshav was present at the location on Monday, "UPMRC will complete the development of Kanpur Metro route within the expected time limit and we are trying to ensure that Kanpur is gifted with an international level metro route," he said.

UPMRC has been eyeing to finish the Kanpur Metro route way before the set deadline and beat its own record. The metro work has been progressing at a rapid pace especially after the allocation of over ₹350 crores in funds from the state budget.

Knock Knock

UPMRC's prompt construction and speedy work is highly appreciable and we hope that Kanpur can soon have its very own metro route. The metro will not only solve connectivity issues but save commuters from heavy traffic and the pothole riddled streets.
