Agra metro operation receives approval from UPMRC

The Agra metro system is to be run by the Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation (UPMRC).

The six-kilometre priority corridor line in Agra will soon see the start of metro services. The UPMRC officials are thrilled about this advancement.

Metro services will run along the priority corridor route through Agra between six stations. There will be three elevated stations, namely Taj East Gate, Basai, and Fatehabad Road, and three underground stations, including the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, and Manakameshwar, following. On the balance part of Agra, the rapid metro’s construction is moving quickly. A total of 29.4 km will be built along two corridors.

This development has been approved by Janak Kumar Garg, Commissioner of Metro Rail Security. From February 21 to 23, he examined the six-kilometre metro track on Agra’s priority line. He gave the go-ahead for metro operations on Monday. UP Metro’s managing director, Sushil Kumar, expressed happiness about the clearance for metro operations. He declared that Agra’s metro services would start on time.

The Taj East Gate, Basai, and Fatehabad Road elevated stations in Agra have all received platinum ratings from the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC). A noteworthy accomplishment in obtaining environmental management certification is being acknowledged as a green metro. The Taj East Gate to RBS College metro station segment of the first corridor was certified to ISO 14001 for environmental management and ISO 45001 for safety management earlier this month by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).
