Lucknow, Metro Rail News: The Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) has set 31 December 2018 deadline for removing all the barricading on roads on NorthSouth
corridor from Chaudhary Charan Singh Airport to Munshipulia where construction work is currently underway.
When Metro Rail News took stock of the situation, it was found that Metro construction work is still in progress from Badshahnagar to Munshipulia.
The construction of Lekhraj market, RS Mishra Nagar and Indira Nagar stations on the route are going on. Commuters say that the barricading by LMRC is the main cause of traffic snarls in the area. “Every day I have to travel from Badshahnagar to Indiranagar for tuition classes. The barricades cover a lot of area on road and are the main reason for traffic jams on the stretch.”
Public relation officer of LMRC Abhishek Mishra said, “We aim to complete the civic construction from the airport to Munshipulia by December 31. We are aware that these barricades cover a lot of area on roads and cause problems to commuters and have
hence doubled the pace of work.”
“After completing the construction of phase-1, we will start the tendering process for the construction of phase-2 (Charbagh to Vasantkunj),” Mishra said.

HDFC has been organizing such blood donation drives for the past 12 years since 2007. This is the first time they have collaborated with LMRC as a part of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility). A team of 3 doctors along with their medical staff from Transfusion Medicine Department of SGPGI collected blood units in mobile van stationed in the Metro Depot. All the volunteer donors were presented with blood donation cards, donor certificates and a complimentary gift for being part of this noble cause. The blood donation card presented to donors can be used for accessing blood in an emergency situation for themselves and their families within 3 months.
It was a golden opportunity for the employees of LMRC to step in to save the lives of others by contributing for this noble cause in every possible way they could and this blood donation initiative turned out to be a great success overall. LMRC will look forward to organizing and actively participate in similar blood donation camps in future with same vigor and enthusiasm.
