Route Check for Corridor 

Once the corridor is completed, only rapid rail trains will stop at RRTS stations, while other metro trains will make stops at every station along the route. The Uttar Pradesh government needs to approve the corridor before it becomes operational. 

The state officials have planned to construct both sections of the corridor concurrently, which is expected to cost Rs 20,043.6 crore and take approximately five years to complete.
