The government on Wednesday okayed transfer of 1,899 sq metres of land owned by Airports Authority of India at Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport to Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC).
The first phase of the rapid transport system was launched earlier this month when the 8.5 km “priority corridor” of the total 22-km-long stretch became operational.
The AAI land will be used by LMRC for construction of an entrance to one of its metro stations near the airport, according to a press statement by the ministry of civil aviation.
The second phase of Lucknow metro project is the 11-km- long East-West corridor, stretching from the Charbagh railway station to Vasantkunj. The corridor will have 12 stations.
