PTI reported that the Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation surveyed metro routes in the city and took note of the difficulties being faced in metro construction. Its commissioner and the Gorakhpur Development Authority vice chairman also held a meeting on the issues. LMRC Director Mr Kumar Keshav and Chief Engineer Mr Ravi Jain visited the metro route with PWD engineers. The Housing and Urban Planning Department chief secretary will inspect the metro route in Gorakhpur. The officials inspected the routes from Mohaddipur to the railway station, Gorakhnath temple gate to Bargadwa and Shyam Nagar, Gulriha to Transport Nagar via Asurn.

Mr Keshav told reporters that "It is proposed that the metro will run in Gorakhpur on pillars with 2 metres width and the proposed distance between the pillars is 27 metres. It will be difficult to construct pillars on a four-lane road. Engineers will try to find an alternative so that metro pillars can be made without any hindrance along with the four-lane road's construction."

However, a four-lane road is under construction on the metro route between Shyam Nagar and Divyanagar and construction has been completed between Mohaddipur and Gurung Tiraha. Construction for the road is underway between Gurung Tiraha and Suba Bazar.
