The road to development is paved with the best intentions, and of course, bitumen. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has spoken about the importance of good roads several times. “When a network of good roads is created… the economy of the country also picks up pace,” the PM said.
Translating the thoughts into action, the Uttar Pradesh government under the dynamic leadership of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath started making concerted efforts to improve road connectivity in the state. The result: As on date, UP is home to the largest network of expressways in terms of total kilometres.
As many as six expressways are functional while seven are at different levels of progress. On the driver’s seat of this change is the UP Expressways and Industrial Development Authority.
