Lucknow: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will today lay the foundation stone of the state’s longest Ganga Expressway at a cost of Rs 36,230 crore in Shahjahanpur, Uttar Pradesh.
Sharing this information on social media, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that Mr. Modi will lay the foundation stone of Ganga Expressway today. “Development in Uttar Pradesh will not stop, it will move forward at a fast pace and will be a source of comprehensive change not only in the lives of all of us but also in the lives of future generations,” he said.
We all have to participate in this development. ” The 594 km long expressway between Prayag Raj and Meerut will not only reduce the distance between eastern and western Uttar Pradesh but also connect several states. Apart from the National Capital Region (NCR), several other states, including Haryana, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, will benefit. Along with this expressway passing through 12 districts of Eastern UP to Western UP, many other economic activities are being promoted through the Industrial Corridor.
Official sources said on Friday that the Ganga Expressway was going to be a milestone in the development of the state’s infrastructure. Prime Minister Modi will lay the foundation stone of Ganga Expressway project in Shahjahanpur district on December 18. The state government had on November 26 last year approved the Ganga Expressway project at a cost of Rs 36,230 crore. About 1855000 saplings will be planted along the expressway for environmental protection.
In addition, solar energy will be generated on the land acquired in the project, which will meet the energy required for the operation of the project. More than half of the Ganga Expressway passes through Meerut, Hapar, Balandshahr, Amroha, Sanbhal, Badaun and Shahjahanpur districts of western UP. Another bridge will be built at Garh Muktishore to transport people from other districts including Hapar and Balandshahr.
When land was being purchased for the Ganga Expressway, the Corona wave was at its peak across the country. Despite this, in just one year, 94% of the land for the Ganga Expressway has been purchased from 83,000 farmers. About 7386 hectares of land is required for this project, in which more than 90% of the land has been purchased from 71621 farmers in the last four months. So far, 94% of the land has been purchased from 82750 farmers.
