Before the PM’s visit, the CMRS is to visit Kanpur between December 20-22 to see the security and safety measures of the Kanpur Metro Rail. The priority corridor of the ambitious Kanpur Metro Rail project was inaugurated on November 15 by UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath. However the commercial run is to start with the flagging off by PM modi on December 28.
The priority corridor is a 9-km stretch between IIT-Kanpur and Motijheel and was completed in a short span of two years.
