UPMRC commences track work of Agra Metro Priority corridor

The Uttar Pradesh Metro Rail Corporation (UPMRC) has begun work on the Agra Metro Priority corridor's track construction. Because track work is currently being done on the mainline, officials working on the Agra Metro Rail project are optimistic about a trial run taking place soon.

“There is one crossover section (where the train changes track) at Taj East Gate Station, and the other crossover section on priority corridor is at Ramlila Maidan near Jama Masjid,” the press release stated.

The ballasted track will be used at the Agra metro depot, while the Agra Metro corridor will use a track without ballast. According to a news release from the UPMRC public relations office, a track without ballast requires less maintenance and is better suited for metro rail projects.

The depot's test track has also been completed and will be used for metro train testing once they arrive.

The elevated segment of the priority corridor (from Taj East Gate to Fatehabad Road Metro Station) will be completed first, followed by track work toward the underground portion.

The Agra Metro Project's first corridor, which connects Taj East Gate to Sikandara, is currently under construction. The Agra Metro Project will consist of two corridors, each about 29 kilometres long each measuring about 29.4 kilometres and having 27 stops.

The priority corridor will have six stations, three elevated and three underground.
