The Central government has sanctioned ₹1,300 crore for the grand makeover of the international airport in Lucknow. Once the targeted construction work of the airport is over, people from across the globe would get to visit the state capital easily. This increased footfall of global tourists would lead to more direct and indirect employment for the locals.
Apart from this, seven newly built overbridges along the roads are helping decongest city roads and save time. Once the proposed 104-km-long outer Ring Road is ready, it will help decongest roads even more as all those passing through Lucknow from anywhere across the country would be able to head to their destinations without entering the state capital. Among other developmental works, the BrahMos Missile Factory, which is coming up in Lucknow, would start production in the next couple of years.
