Agra Metro, CM yogi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi virtually inaugurated the Agra Metro from Kolkata today, setting a new milestone in India’s transportation sector. The inauguration ceremony witnessed Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath flagging off the Agra Metro from the iconic Taj Mahal Metro Station.

The Agra Metro, now the sixth metro system in Uttar Pradesh, has broken records by commencing operations nearly nine months earlier than anticipated. Initially slated for a 32-month construction period, the primary underground section was completed in just 23 months following the laying of its foundation stone by PM Modi on December 7, 2020.

With an initial phase covering a distance of 6 kilometers and encompassing six stations along its priority corridor, the Agra Metro is set to transform public transit in the region. Commencing Thursday, the general public will have access to metro services bolstered by AI surveillance within the metro stations for enhanced security.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who personally experienced the inaugural journey from Taj Mahal station to Taj East station, lauded the timeliness and quality of the Agra Metro project. He remarked, “Agra Metro has upheld this standard. Best Wishes,” in the visitor book, highlighting the project’s adherence to deadlines and superior execution.

Speaking on the occasion, CM Yogi emphasised Uttar Pradesh’s pioneering role in expanding metro services across its cities. He noted that the Agra Metro, alongside projects in Lucknow, Ghaziabad, Noida, Greater Noida, and Kanpur, underscores the state’s commitment to modern transportation infrastructure.

Acknowledging the Uttar Pradesh Metro Corporation’s dedication, CM Yogi expressed gratitude for its exemplary service in realizing PM Modi’s vision for the state’s development. He praised the corporation’s achievement in completing three underground stations within 3 kilometers, setting a national precedent for rapid metro development.
