Last week, I had posted an image of Lucknow’s Depot as viewed from the Kanpur Road. Now, here are some newer snaps of it shot on November 4 from within the premises located at the PAC Grounds in Transport Nagar.
The depot is under construction by Richa Industries who in June 2015 had announced the contract award:
The project involves construction of 5 pre-engineered buildings (PEB) – inspection bay line & workshop; stabling shed; interior cleaning; pit wheel & lathe; and car parking. The scope of work includes engineering design, fabrication, shipment and erection of pre-engineered buildings for Transport Nagar depot at North-South corridor of Lucknow Metro.
As a reminder, Alstom will be supplying 20 train-sets each consisting of 4 coaches and the Lucknow Metro Rail Corp expects to start trial runs towards the end of 2016.
