As per a TOI report, "The project is expected to come up on the east bank of the Yamuna and would travel nearly 200 kilometre, from Mahamaya flyover in Noida, to night safari, Buddha International circuit, international cricket ground, to Mathura and finally to Agra."
As per the daily's report, "Government officials said the project will be built on the lines of the Sydney Monorail project. A detailed project report, which will also give details of how the project will be funded, however, is yet to be prepared."
Uttar Pradesh government had earlier approved eight km route of Lucknow Metro Rail project's first phase of North-South corridor for starting work in August this year.
The approval was made in a cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.
The route will be from Transport Nagar to Charbagh railway station on which work would be started with finance from state government agencies with condition that if in any case the Centre did not finance it, the state government would bear its entire expenditure, Chief Secretary Alok Ranjan told reporters here.
The deadline for completion of the work is December 2016.
