Prime Minister Narendra Modi will virtually launch the construction work of Agra metro on 7th December. Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation has set a deadline of five years for the completion of two corridors of Agra metro which will connect all the major tourist destinations and the tourists coming from all over the world to see the Taj will get a new experience of green transport.
In an exclusive interview with AIR, MD of UPMRC Kumar Keshav said that Agra Metro will be a boon to tourism and it will take around 3 years for the first metro train on the priority section between Tajmahal to Jama Masjid.
He said that First time Heritage impact assessment was done with the help of IIT Madras and archaeological survey of India as per the guidelines of UNESCO before starting of work.
Agra is also one of the most polluted cities of Uttar Pradesh and the Metro will definitely help in decreasing the pollution level of the city.
