  • Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh has taken up this expressway to accelerate development in the Bundelkhand area, especially in less developed districts like Chitrakoot, Banda, Hamirpur, and Jalaun.

The 296 Km long Bundelkhand Expressway in Uttar Pradesh is expected to be made functional by the end of June this year.

According to the cabinet minister for infrastructure and industrial development Nand Gopal Gupta Nandi, completion of the Bundelkhand Expressway is part of the 100 day goals of the second term of CM Yogi Adityanath government in the state.

“Completion of the Bundelkhand Expressway holds prime importance under chief minister Yogi Adityanath’s 100-day goals for us. More than 91 per cent work of the project has been completed and whatever is left is being completed speedily. We look forward to achieving it soon,” Cabinet Minister Nand Gopal told The Times of India.

“The expressway would accelerate the progress of the defence corridor, adding that the work on Ganga Expressway, Ballia Link Expressway and Gorakhpur Link Expressway would also be prioritised,” he added.

UPEIDA’s latest progress report on the Bundelkhand Expressway shows an overall completion of 91.27 per cent with 863 out of 881 structures completed.

Bundelkhand Expressway begins at village Kudrail in district Etawah on the Agra-Lucknow Expressway and ends near Bharatkoop in Chitrakoot district.

Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh has taken up this expressway to accelerate development in the Bundelkhand area, especially in less developed districts like Chitrakoot, Banda, Hamirpur, and Jalaun.

This expressway will be four lanes (expandable up to six lanes) with six lane-wide structures.

A service road of 3.75-metre width will be constructed at one side of the expressway in a staggered form so that residents of nearby villages of the project area may get a smooth transportation facility.

The construction cost is estimated to be more than Rs 7,700 crore. The project has been divided into six packages. Contracts have been constituted with developers like Apco Infratech, Ashoka Buildcon, Gavar Construction and Dilip Bildcon.

With the construction of the expressway, the Bundelkhand area will be linked with a fast and smooth traffic corridor to the Agra-Lucknow expressway and Yamuna expressway, thus further connected to the National Capital Region (NCR Delhi).
