The Lucknow Metro is a proposed rapid transit system in the city of Lucknow, India. Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation Limited or LMRC is responsible to build and operate this network. The metro project will be the most expensive public transport system in the state of Uttar Pradesh, costing 12,500 crore (US$2 billion). It will provide speedy mass transport and help in de-congesting city roads.
The proposed metro rail network was planned to consist of two corridors: North-South and East-West one from Amausi to Munshi Pulia and other from Vasant Kunj to Charbagh Railway Station. Both lines will intersect at Charbagh. An extension line from Indira Nagar – Gomti Nagar – Polytechnic Crossing will extend it to Patrakarpuram, Gomti Nagar. The difference between arrival time of trains at each station is expected to be 7 minutes. This would be reduced to 5 minutes and then to 3 minutes in phases.
