    The sort of pace at which LMRC is moving, they now quickly need to start the ball rolling for the east west line too.

      Last I heard, they were revising its DPR and selecting a new alignment to connect the same terminals.


    Dear sir
    Is there any plan of third or more lines in lucknow metro.

    • TMRG says:

      Last year, LMRCL presented a master plan with 6 lines to the CM, but no details were revealed. By the time we get to its implementation, the nature (alignment, length) of those lines can be expected to change.
