The Detailed Project Report prepared by the DMRC had proposed a station at Mahanagar between IT College and Badshah Nagar, but the LMRC has now dropped as it was only 673 meters away from the Badshah Nagar station. The Indira Nagar and Munshipulia stations with a distance of 1.56 km between them will be the farthest apart on this stretch followed by the KD Singh Babu and University of Lucknow (Vishwavidyalaya) stations with a distance of 1.48 km.

The location of the airport station on that little 2 km section has not yet been finalized as the Airports Authority of India (AAI) wants it to be built farther away from the terminal due to security reasons. Whenever the LMRC and AAI reach an agreement over it, the LMRC will then invite tenders to build it. Hopefully soon!
