Everything about Bundelkhand Expressway in Uttar Pradesh

Prime Minister Narendra Modi placed the foundation stone for the 296-kilometer Bundelkhand Expressway, a four-lane controlled-access expressway connecting the state’s backward districts to the national capital, on February 29, 2020.

It would connect the Bundelkhand area to Delhi through the Agra-Lucknow Expressway and the Yamuna Expressway, passing through the Uttar Pradesh districts of Chitrakoot, Banda, Hamirpur, and Jalaun.

About half of the work has been finished by March 2021, allowing the Uttar Pradesh Expressway Industrial Development Authority (UPEIDA) to set a new record for completing a bridge over the Yamuna in such a short time.

The second wave of COVID-19 disrupted certain project building activities, creating delays. The government, on the other hand, intends to finish the project ahead of schedule. The project is expected to be completed in March of 2022. The expressway’s main carriageway is anticipated to be finished by the end of 2021.

What are the advantages of the Bundelkhand Expressway for Uttar Pradesh?

Bundelkhand is also on its way to becoming a major hub for the ‘Make in India’ program, with items created here being utilized for exports, thanks to the expressway. Smaller industries are projected to thrive over time as well. Last year’s budget included funding for the Uttar Pradesh Defence Corridor in the amount of Rs 3,700 crores. The Expressway will connect the nodes of the Uttar Pradesh Defense Industrial Corridor, which the national government announced in February 2018.

The initiative, which would cost Rs 15,000 crores, is anticipated to transform people’s lives throughout the region. PM Modi, who laid the project’s foundation stone, said the highway will improve connectivity between the region and services in larger cities, allowing thousands of citizens to relocate more easily in search of better work prospects.

Project Timeline

In April 2017, the Yogi Adityanath-led administration presented their proposal for the forthcoming expressway, intending to improve the economy and connectivity in Uttar Pradesh’s interiors. The project began in late 2019 to finish in the next 30 months. 90% of the land required for the project has already been bought by 2019.

Use of Advanced Technology

The bridge is being constructed with advanced technologies. The ribs, according to the UPEIDA head engineer, were built over roadside thermoplastic linings. This will warn the motorist that his car is ready to slide off the road. This safety precaution differs significantly from those employed in Agra and Poorvanchal.
