Lucknow Metro completes trial run on the North-South corridor, (Munshipulia to Airport). The metro stretch is 23 kilometers long and there are 21 stations on this route.
People will be able to reach the airport in 40 minutes from Munshipulia once all the stations are operational.
Good news for Lucknowites as the Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC)‘s North-South corridor running from Munshipulia to Airport has finally completed all the trial runs and is expected to open soon!
This 23 kilometer long line was supposed to be finished by April, but all the work is now expected to be completed two months earlier, by February.
Starting from Munshipulia the stations would be, Indira Nagar, R S Mishra Nagar, Lekhraj Market, Badshah Nagar, IT Chauraha, Vishvavidyalay, K D Singh Stadium, Hazratganj, Sachivalaya, Husain Ganj, Charbagh, Durgapuri, Mawaiya, Alambagh Bus Station, Alambagh, Singar Nagar, Krishna Nagar, Transport Nagar, Amausi and would finally terminate at Chaudhary Charan Singh Airport.
The priority route from Charbagh to Transport Nagar which has eight stations is already operational since 2017. The rest of 13 stations are expected to be operational soon, after which commuters would have to spend hardly 40 minutes to reach from Munshipulia to CCS Airport. The metro route will not only save time of the commuters but would also provide a respite from heavy traffic congestion.
And the best part is that the maximum fare on this route would be ₹60.
LMRC has proposed an East-West Corridor that would run from Charbagh to Vasant Kunj and would have 12 stations, bringing the total stretch of Lucknow Metro to 34 kilometers.
