Top infrastructure companies interested in constructing India’s longest expressway
Country’s longest proposed expressway, Purvanchal Expressway is eyed by many of the top infrastructure companies. The 341-km six-lane (expandable to eight lanes) access-controlled expressway is from Lucknow to Ghazipur in UP.
It would connect nine of the state’s predominantly agricultural districts to the state capital and also would connect them to country’s Capital Delhi. The total cost of the project is estimated to be 23,349 crore, which includes the cost of land as well.
Companies like Larsen & Toubro, Reliance Infratech, PNC Infratech, Sadbhav Engineering, Ashoka Buildcon, Afcons Infrastructure and many more countries have placed technical bids for the project. The output expectations are to transform the state’s most remote and under-developed eastern region and show the regions the light of development.
