Kanpur, India (Urban Transport News): The Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (UPMRC), which is executing the work of Kanpur Metro Rail project, has planned to commence construction activities for 4-km underground stretch of Kanpur Metro between Chunniganj and Nayaganj. A total of four metro stations have been planned to contruction on this strech at Chunniganj, Naveen Market, Bada Chauraha, and Nayaganj.
For the construction of these Metro Stations, the traffic diversion system will be introduced at all the four places, which will remain the same for about 2 years after commencing the the construction works. In view of the convenience of city dwellers, UPMRC has made an effective strategy for traffic diversion on this route. Therefore, UPMRC and Kanpur Traffic Police have jointly decided to invite suggestions from the residents/affected people of the city before the implementation of the new traffic diversion plan.
"Primarily, this strategy is to be implemented for the proposed diversion near the Naveen Market Metro Station. The details of the diversion plan prescribed for the Naveen Market Station will be made available on the social media platforms of UPMRC and Uttar Pradesh Traffic Police on which the residents can submit their suggestions in the form of comments till July 20, 2021. Keeping these suggestions in mind, suitable modifications in the diversion plan will be considered and finally, the plan approved by the traffic police will be implemented with effect from July 21, 2021," said press statement issued by UPMRC.
The Naveen Market Metro Station is proposed between Parade Crossroad and Kalyan Ji Bakery. Vehicles coming from the Lal Imli crossroad can take a left turn from the Parade intersection to reach Bada Chauraha via Civil Lines/Empire Lane. A 12 feet space will be left parallel to the barricading from Parade Crossroad to Kalyan ji Bakery for the passengers going to Naveen Market. This route will work as a one-way. Passengers coming from the Bada Chauraha side can use this route parallel to the barricading to reach Naveen Market.
At the same time, vehicles coming from Lal Imli side, which have to go to Naveen Market, can reach the turn of Bhargava Hospital via Empire Lane and after that turn to the right and reach the Naveen Market via the road provided beside the barricading. It has been said that the parking in main road area will be removed and citizens can parked their vehicles at crystal parking.
