From Kababs to people, Lucknow is a city which will never disappoint you in food and the respect you get from the people here. The moment you hear a person addressing himself with a “hum”, or calling you by ‘Aap’, you realise the city he comes from.
The only complain we Lucknowite ever had was the places to hangout (except eating), colleges for higher education and finally landing up with a job here in this city itself. Finally, after a long wait, we are seeing rapid development in the city! Here are 9 developments which will make all Lucknowites proud!
1. Lucknow Metro
No more traffic jam, no more changing autos and buses. All the people living in and around Indira Nagar will soon be able to visit Alambagh and vice versa. The north-south corridor is near completion and the construction on E-W corridor will start soon.
2. Gomti Riverfront
Though the original plan of Gomti Riverfront is revised now. According to people related to development of Gomti Riverfront, a new low cost planned might be passed for the completion of work, once the investigation under riverfront scam is completed.
3. Agra – Lucknow Expressway
The 308-km long Agra – Lucknow Expressway is the longest and the fastest greenfield expressway in India. It connects the state capital to the city of Taj and brings Delhi closer.
