Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has directed officials to introduce Metro Rail service in his hometown, thus clearing decks for Gorakhpur Metro Rail project.
Following this, the blueprint (detailed project report) will be prepared. Rail India Technical and Economic Services (RITES) has been given the task to draft the DPR.
“We got the sanction today and are going ahead with the detailed project report for Gorakhpur Metro Rail. We will submit the DPR within six months,” a senior officer at the housing department was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.
“Since Gorakhpur doesn’t have a comprehensive mobility plan (CMP), which is a mandatory pre-requisite for metro rail, RITES has also been asked to prepare the CMP simultaneously with the DPR,” he said.
