The dream of Kanpur Metro which has been under wraps for quite some time now is finally coming true. The metro network which is expected to bring tons of development opportunities to the city and provide people with a faster, more reliable means of transport, is finally becoming a reality!

Earlier it was reported that the Kanpur Metro has been given major NOCs from necessary departments and the plan was to begin work as soon as possible. According to new updates, the Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) which is also the driving force behind Kanpur metro has set August 19 as the date for floating the civil tenders. Hopefully the construction work will follow suit and begin by October.

Metro in action

This news has us super excited, because the beginning of metro work means that within a few years people of Kanpur would be able to avail the modern metro services. This will not only make our commute easy, it would also provide seamless connectivity throughout the city.

According to a report by Dainik Jagran, Kumar Keshav the Managing Director of UPMRC has assured that basic structures of the station would be prepared by 2020.

As of now, two of the metro corridors have been confirmed. The first corridor will connect IIT Kanpur to Naubasta area, covering a stretch of 26 kms. The second corridor will run from Agricultural University to Barra-8, with eight overall stations and 9 kms in length.

Kanpur metro is not only expected to provide connectivity but also bring about an era of rounded development and growth for the city.

So when the country-wide lockdown was imposed, many of those pupils studying here reported that their parents who were mostly daily wagers, had lost sources of income and have been facing issues of various kinds.
