In 2-3 years, UP to get longest network of 2,230 km expressways.

Over the next 2-3 years, Uttar Pradesh will have the maximum number of expressways and the longest network of expressways passing through any state in India. The state is likely to get a network of nearly 2,230 km of expressways, according to the estimate of works completed, stretches under construction and bids invited by different road owning agencies.

While the state government has completed four expressways, including the Purvanchal e-way, which was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi last week, work has started on three more such stretches.

Two expressway stretches have been completed by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) - Delhi-Meerut and Easter Peripheral Expressways. Major portions of these two are within UP.

The NHAI has also taken up construction of a 210-km expressway starting from Akshardham in Delhi and terminating in Dehradun. Approximately 191km of this expressway falls in UP. “The Centre has now put more focus on expressways and greenfield highways across the country. But UP has taken the lead to build its own expressways with its own funds. No other state can compete with UP in this huge infrastructure push to improve connectivity within a state...,” said an NHAI official, who did not wish to be named.
