Lucknow is one of the largest city of India.It is the capital city of India's biggest state which is also an economic behemoth in the country with second highest GDP and largest labor force,it is also the most populous province in the world.The present population of the city stands at 4,776,098 and is expected to double in the next decade.It is only 88 km far from the industrial hub of the state Kanpur which has a population of around 6.5 million both rural and urban.Lucknow is also surrounded by several million plus cities in the 500 km radius including Delhi,Meerut,Agra,Raebareili,Varanasi,Allahabad,Gorakhpur,Bareily to name a few.
The state of Uttar Pradesh is also the political playground of the country with the most powerful parties and politicians having their constituencies across the state.But sorrowfully countries most significant and powerful state has been unable to catch up with the nation's growth and development due to corruption and lack of infrastructure.Realizing this need the government has decide to provide metros for its 5 cities Lucknow,Kanpur,Gazhiabad,Noida and Greater Noida.

The work on Lucknow metro has began while that of Gazhiabad,Noida and Greater Noida is almost completed.Presently soil samples are being taken.
I being the resident of the city have seen the fast pace of work going on across the city with drilling machines ,hi tech machinery and the best part LUCKNOW METRO WORK IN PROGRESS blue boards.

Lucknow Metro: collection of soil samples begin

The soil testing for the Amausi-Mushipulia corridor of the proposed Lucknow Metro has already begun. The Ghaziabad-based Sai Geo-technical and Construction Services has been entrusted with the job.

“The report of the soil samples and their testing will be submitted by mid-September,” said Navin Bihari, Managing Director of Sai Geo-technical and Construction Service.

The reports will be submitted to SREI Infrastructure Finance Limited, the consultant for preparing the Detailed Project Report of Lucknow Metro.

The Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) has identified two metro corridors for Lucknow — the North-South corridor from Amausi airport to Munshipulia and an East-West corridor from Gomti Nagar to Rajajipuram.

On February 5, the Authority had signed an MoU with Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, (DMRC) enabling the latter to carry out a detailed study of the city’s traffic and transportation and prepare the report.

The Corporation has been asked to prepare the report within 9 months at a cost of Rs 4 crore.

While the collection of the soil from the North-South corridor has already begun, the collection on the other, 14-km route, is expected to start soon. The samples are being collected at a 30-metre depth from road surface at every 500 meters.

According to Bihari, soil testing is important as the design of foundation will depend on the nature of the soil. For instance, if the soil is muddy, the foundation has to be stronger.

The Authority had recently tied up with the Central Road Research Institute (CRRI) to chalk out a Comprehensive Mobility Plan (CMP) to ease traffic congestion in Lucknow.

The committee gave a green signal to the construction of the North-South Corridor. The metro tracks would be designed to sustain a maximum speed of up to 80 kmph. However, the scheduled speed for metro on N-S Corridor would be 34 kmph and for E-W Corridor would be 32 kmph. Total estimated completion cost (including cost escalation factor and Central taxes) for N-S Corridor would be Rs.6,757 crore and for E-W Corridor would be Rs.5,396 crore. Hence, the total estimated project cost is Rs.12,153 crore.
The fare collection system would be automatic through smart cards and POM. Metro rail would have two maintenance facilities—at Transport Nagar for N-S Corridor and at Vasnat Kunj Depot for E-W Corridor. To execute the project, an SPV (special purpose vehicle) – ‘Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation’ is to be formed regarding which a proposal of memorandum of association and article of association was floated. A committee has been formed under the chairmanship of principal secretary of finance to review the proposal and submit its report to the high level committee over next 15 days.
The committee also approved conducting a techno-feasibility study of about 42 kms of the first phase of the project including the loop links (alternative corridors) namely Gomtinagar link, Tulsidas Marg, Subhash Marg, Mill Road and Ring Metro line by DMRC based on its terms of reference.

This is a Central Government project and its half of the funding will directly come from the Central Government.

Lucknow and Kanpur have the potential to be the next Delhi or Mumbai as they are the center point India's most siginificant and dominating state,this is where 20% of the country lives and any development here will churn out monstrously positive results for the entire country.Uttar Pradesh has the strongest Middle Class in the country of about 98 million that is more than that of Maharashtra and Gujarat combined so it has huge reserves of Cash in its treasury which is sorrowfully being used like a waste.

In Lucknow in some areas you have Granite footpaths and red sandstone's(material used in Taj Mahal) for park boundries and walkways,pure marble elephant statues are everywhere draging Mayawati on a chariot, here you even have Manhole covers lined with expensive brass and street lights are LED sort,something found very rarely even in metros.

I highly doubt it's India's most significant and dominating state , far from it in fact- just having the most number of people and politicians in Lok sabha stands for nothing. It needs to get a whole bunch of stuff sorted and for India's largest state it has to get rid of the BIMARU tag around it.

Anyhow , here's a link to the wiki page which doesn't say much apart from mentioning the proposed lines and that's pretty much the status. Guess the BSP govt. really has to get off it's high elephant.

I think this is not correct.

2nd largest electricity producer is TN
2nd largest IT exporter is AP
Okay...I have just rechecked some fact,UP is the biggest consumer of energy and its has second highest amount of IT exports from NOIDA and greater NOIDA...........!Now leave this and concentrate on something else.

NOIDA has almost nothing to do with UP, whatever it is only because of its proximity to Delhi.

Please have youe camera repaired, I would like to see some pics of the India's most significant state.
As far as population is concerned you missed another to be proud fact that only three countries (China, India and United States) in the whole world has more population than UP does.

Best soultion for UP is to break it into parts; Purvanchal, Bundelkhand, Western UP & central UP. Otherwise politcians will always treat UP just for no. of seats they can win from here in Lok Sabha by any means and will rake up the issue of caste & relegion.
By the way if western UP was separate it would have been in same leauge with Haryana & Punjab

I agree. Break it up. Small states, less politics, better governance.

Indeed , goons rule the state and there are too many sub center's of power , UP has incredible potential (just like any other state) but as mentioned above it needs to be cut into 3 or 4 proper states.
