The Uttar Pradesh government cabinet chaired by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on 9th October 2020 approved the Light Rail Transit System for the Gorakhpur City and gave its nod to the detailed project report (DPR) of the Gorakhpur Light Metro project prepared by RITES Limited.
According to the DPR, the project cost of the proposed LRTS in Gorakhpur is pegged to Rs 4,672 crore. The deadline to complete this project is set to 2024.
The Gorakhpur Light Metro Rail project would span almost 28 km with two elevated corridors. While one elevated corridor would span 15.14 km comprising 14 stations, the other corridor would run 12.70 km and consist of 13 stations.
Now state cabinet will send the DPR to the Central Government cabinet for getting approval according to the new Metro Rail Policy and standard set by the Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs, Govt. of India.
Light Metro is a rail transport system with a capacity greater than light rail, but lower than the typical heavy-rail rapid transit system.
In July 2020, Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation (UPMRC) has submitted the DPR of the Gorakhpur Light Metro project to State Government Cabinet for approval.
