About the Expressway

The 341-km long Purvanchal Expressway will connect eastern and western Uttar Pradesh. The project costed around Rs. 22,500 crore (Including the cost of land) and is completed in a record time. The Expressway starts from Chand Sarai village in Lucknow and the ending point is near village Haidaria on National Highway No -19.

It will pass through Lucknow, Barabanki, Amethi, Ayodhya, Sultanpur, Amethi, Ambedkar Nagar, Azamgarh, Mau, and Ghazipur areas. The proposed Purvanchal Expressway is connected with the existing Agra-Lucknow Expressway that will become a vast Industrial Corridor connecting the Eastern boundary to the Western boundary of the state resulting in the overall development of the state.

The foundation stone for the 340 km long expressway was laid by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2018. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that this expressway will transform Purvanchal and will boost tourism and employment opportunities.

Project benefits:

The six-lane carriageway will serve in decongesting the entire city and ensure smooth traffic flow. Being an access-controlled expressway, it would bring several benefits like fuel-saving, time-saving, and control in Pollution levels, along with a reduction in accidents. The areas covered by this Expressway would provide a benefit in a social & economical way. Agriculture, commerce, tourism, and other industrial development will also get a fillip.
