The Lucknow Metro (Hindi: लखनऊ मेट्रो) is an under construction rapid transit system in the city of Lucknow, India. Construction on the first phase began on 27 September 2014. 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 ₹12500 crore. It will provide speedy mass transport and help in reduce traffic congestion on 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.

Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) today achieved another milestone in Metro construction by erecting four hundred U-girders on its ‘priority corridor’ from Transport Nagar to Charbagh. This feat was achieved by LMRC engineers this morning by placing the 400th U-girder at Chandar Nagar near Alambagh Metro station at 3: 30 AM

In all, Lucknow Metro has to erect 535 U-girders across its 8.5 km long ‘priority corridor’ from Transport Nagar to Charbagh. LMRC now needs to erect only 135 U-girders upto Charbagh Metro station.

Erection of U-girders over Metro viaduct is a very challenging and tough task considering the trickiness of job and huge safety concerns associated with it. Each U-girder weighs around 150 tonnes and a pair of such girders have to be lifted through cranes and then fixed over the viaduct.

This work is even more difficult considering the fact that it has to be done in just six hours during the night time as LMRC does not the undertake the work of U-girder erection in day time owing to city traffic constraints.

Considering the time available for doing such a difficult task in night hours only, this achievement of Lucknow Metro is a record in itself as compared with similar kind of work for any Metro construction anywhere in the country.

In addition, over 75% of civil work for the project is already complete with the ‘track laying’ work already in progress at the Transport Nagar Metro station. Lucknow Metro is committed to commission the 8.5 km ‘priority section’ from Transport Nagar to Charbagh by December, 2016.

A team from Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) headed for France on Sunday to approve the final designs of Metro coaches designed by French company Alstom Transport SA. The team has to verify if the colour, exterior and interior features of coaches are as per the stipulated guidelines and give a final go-ahead for manufacturing in India.

LMRC had awarded the contract for supply, testing and commissioning of 80 coaches for Lucknow Metro to a consortium of Alstom Transport India Ltd and Alstom Transport SA at a cost of Rs 1,069 crore in September 2015. A total of 20 trains will run in the first phase of Metro corridor (north-south) comprising four coaches each.

From the day of awarding the contract, Alstom had to deliver the coaches within 65 weeks. However, the first train of four coaches has to arrive in Lucknow by October 2016 for trials on the priority corridor from Transportnagar to Charbagh (about 8.5 km). This section has to be commissioned by December 2016.

The team comprises Pandhari Yadav, secretary housing, LMRC MD Kumar Keshav, Mahendra Kumar, director rolling stock and system, LMRC, among others. It will stay in France for about five days to work on the detailing of the coaches.An LMRC spokesperson said, "LMRC needs to check every detail of the coach before giving a nod for manufacturing. This includes seats, handle bar, gates, CCTV cameras, grab-bars, poles, etc. Alstom will show them a 3D mock-up of Lucknow Metro coach. Once approved, the coaches will be manufactured in Chennai."
