Lucknow: Additional Chief Secretary (Home) and CEO of UPEIDA Awanish Awasthi took stock of progress achieved in the construction works of
Purvanchal Expressway by conducting on-site inspection from package 1 to package 8, which is set to be inaugurated soon. The main carriageway is ready while remaining construction is going on in full swing.
Purvanchal Expressway is an important project of Yogi government which is 341 km long and will link Lucknow to Ghazipur. Chief Engineer of UPIEDA, Media Advisor Durgesh Upadhyay and officers of district administration were also present during the inspection.
The 6-lane expressway, expandable to eight lanes, will connect Lucknow with the economically less developed districts like Azamgarh, Mau, Ghazipur, Faizabad, Sultanpur, Ambedkar Nagar and Amethi.
The expressway will bring about development of UP’s eastern districts by connecting them to the state capital and further to Agra and New Delhi, through the Lucknow-Agra E’way.
