: On the occasion of fourth anniversary of successful operations of Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation. Durga Shankar Mishra (Housing and Urban Affairs Secretary of India) advised the state government to consider the construction of the second metro corridor in the city for the improvement of the mobility.

We should focus on multi-modal integration of transportation along with last-mile connectivity to make metro service more comfortable and convenient for people. Ese of living is the only objective of all the plans and policies of the central government. While serving people our prime focus should be making Metro the preferred mode of travel.

To improve mobility in Lucknow, which is evolving rapidly, I have urged construction of the second (east-west) corridor in the city.
