The CM, who was here to review the preparations for the inauguration of the expressway by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Nov 16 said its foundation was laid in 2018 and was completed in barely 19 months despite the Covid pandemic.

'This expressway will prove to be the backbone of Eastern UP. Its inauguration will be in a grand way, accompanied by an air show as a three-and-a-half-km long stretch near Sultanpur has been developed as an airstrip for emergency landing of aircraft,' he said.
