The authorized body of this project is LMRCL (Lucknow metro rail corporation limited) which is completely responsible for construction and regulation of Lucknow Metro. This is a major transport system of the city covering a total costing of 12,500 crore (2 billion US dollar). It was also planned in two phases, initially the work of phase-1 was started and it is expected to complete at 2018. Lucknow is the capital of the State UP which is also the largest city of north and central India. This project is basically concern due to help the mass with traffic congestion and speedy mass transport. In the Lucknow Metro design, two corridors will establish one is North-South corridor and second East-West corridor. First Corridor starts with Amausi to Munshi Pulia and next corridor from Vasant Kunj to Charbagh Railway Station. Intersection point of both these corridors will be Charbagh. One of the extension lines from (Indra Nagar- Gomti Nagar- Polytechnic Crossing) may extend to Patrakarpuram, Gomti Nagar in future. This extension will help in future to reduce time interval in both phases. According to various people this will be the country first fastest and most economical rapid system.

Past execution and project details

In starting of this Lucknow Metro Project two corridors were planned North-South, East-West and the Gomti Nagar Link. The estimate cost of north-south corridor was 74.13 billion Rs, for east-west corridor it was 48.79 billion and for Gomti Nagar link it was 4.95 billion Rs. North-South corridor covers a total distance of 23km whose 14.87 km will be elevated and will connect Amausi airport to Munshipulia. In this corridor there will be 22 stations and sustains 18 overhead and 4 underground. Stations which will be elevated are Airport Terminal, Amausi, Transport Nagar, Krishna Nagar, Singaar Nagar, Alambagh, Alambagh ISBT, Dalibagh crossing, Lucknow University, IT College, Mahanagar, Badshahnagar, Lekhraj Market, Ramsagar Mishra Nagar, Indira Nagar and underground stations will be Hussain Ganj, Sachivalya, Hazratganj and KD Singh Babu Stadium and Munshi Pulia. Gomti Nagar link will be utilized to divert the coming train from airport terminal. East-West Corridor covers a total distance of 11 km in which 4.29 km were elevated, 0.5 km ramp and the rest 6.3km underground. This corridor connects the Lucknow railway station to Vasant Kunj. This corridor sustains a total number of 12 stations having 7 underground and five overhead. The elevated stations of East-West Corridor will be Sarfarazganj, Moosabagh, Thakurganj, Balaganj, and the Vasant Kunj terminal stations. Underground stations are Lucknow Railway Station (Charbagh), Gautam Buddha Marg, Aminabad, Pandeyganj, Chattrapati Shahuji Maharaj Medical University (King George Medical University) and Niwazganj.

The planned pace of metro would be 80 km/hr while the planned speed would be 34 km/hr for North-South route and 32 km/hr for East-West route. There would be stand out terminal at Vasant Kunj spread over an area measuring 20 hectares. The Amausi Depot has been done away on account of its nearness to the Airport and the ensuing reasons of security and wellbeing. In 2013, the Department of Urban Planning got rid of the two hallway design and prescribed a thick system of metro network in Lucknow. The whole course has been proposed to be fabricated overhead. Because of this, the general expense of the task will go up because of an extended system; the working expense per km will be diminished. This is on the grounds that the expense of developing one km of overhead track is 1.8 billion (US$27 million) comparable to 5.5 billion (US$82 million) for an underground track. Likewise, an underground track devours significantly more vitality and is less sheltered. There is additionally a proposition to begin a Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS) as a feeder administration to the metro.
