Area around Kukrail Nullah to be developed on the lines of Gomti Riverfront in Lucknow soon!

The area around Kukrail Nullah in Lucknow is all set to be developed on the lines of the Gomti Riverfront. Interestingly, the popular 'Kukrail Nullah' is actually a 28-kilometre long tributary of the Gomti river. Originating near Niwajpur Dasauli village, this water stream terminates in Gomti near the Fun Republic Mall. This development project will not only bring back the lost glory of this stream but will also add another hang-out spot in the city.
