Yogi Government is planning a 100-km expressway link from the Purvanchal Expressway to Allahabad- which Keshav Prasad Maurya, Deputy Chief Minister belongs.
Allahabad comes shortly after a nearly 100-km long expressway link was approved for chief minister Yogi Adityanath’s erstwhile constituency of Gorakhpur from the 352-km long Purvanchal Expressway. Rs. 550 cr allotted in the recent budget for this project.
Yogi government has ordered a pre-feasibility study for the proposed ‘Prayag Link Expressway’. According to the MOM of the board meeting of the UP Expressways Industrial Development Authority this year, Maurya proposed the link expressway to Allahabad and that the plan is to begin the construction before the Kumbh Mela scheduled to be held next year in January.
“The board was informed that the deputy chief minister has desired that action be taken to link the pilgrimage centre of Prayag (Allahabad) with Purvanchal Expressway,” the minutes say.
The proposed four-lane expressway road may branch off near Sultanpur from the Purvanchal Expressway to Allahabad, a poorly-maintained area that results in a three-hour ride.
The link expressway to Gorakhpur and Allahabad will bring key “northsouth” connectivity in eastern UP where all major roads were presently aligned west-east, officials said. The foundation stone of Purvanchal Expressway is to be laid on the first anniversary of the Adityanath government on March 19.
