Alstom and Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) unveiled the design of Alstoms Metropolis for Lucknow in the presence of Honble Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, Kumar Keshav, Managing Director of LMRC and Bharat Salhotra, Managing Director of Alstom India and South Asia.

The design of Alstoms Metropolis for Lucknow is a tribute to the citys cultural richness. The front of the metro has been conceived in the spirit of some of the citys most important monuments gates such as Bara-Imambara, the Asifi Masjid or the Roomi. At the lower section of the front, the V cutline symbolizes the dynamism and rapidity with which the Lucknow metro project has been handled to address the citys high demand for mobility. The exterior livery is both highly modern and very much inspired by the traditional cashmere craftsmanship of Lucknow. Special attention has been paid to passenger comfort; Metropolis offers 186 seats in longitudinal configuration and two dedicated zones for passengers with reduced mobility. Screens displaying useful travel information have been placed in convenient locations inside the metro, visible to all.

In September 2015, Alstom was awarded a contract by LRMC to supply 20 Metropolis trainsets, each composed of four metro cars. The Metropolis trainsets will circulate on the citys new metro line, which will be around 23 km long and will include 22 stations, of which 19 elevated and 3 underground. The line is estimated to carry about 430,000 passengers per day at first, increasing to over 1 million by 2030. 

The metro cars will be produced at Alstoms Sri City and Coimbatore manufacturing facilities in India. The signalling system will be jointly supplied by Alstoms sites in Bangalore, India and Saint-Ouen, France. 

Alstom has a strong presence in India where the company has been awarded important metro projects for cities including Chennai, Delhi and Kochi.
