The six lanes expressway (expandable upto eight) will have 120m wide roads with a proposed 3.75 meter service road at one side for the smooth transportation among the nearby villages. The proposed expressway will shorten the travel time between Delhi to Prayagraj to only seven hours, a journey which normally takes more than 11 hrs.

According to the statement released by the Prime Minister’s Office, the expressway is being built on PM Modi’s vision to provide fast paced connectivity across the country. The budget for the same is over Rs 36,200 cr.
