LUCKNOW The Uttar Pradesh Expressway Industrial Development Authority (UPEIDA) has proposed to construct six new expressways to connect major religious towns of the state with Bundelkhand Expressway and Ganga Expressway. Varanasi and Haridwar will also be connected by the Ganga Expressway, said Nand Gopal Gupta ‘Nandi’, industry development minister.

Construction work on greenfield Ganga Expressway project from Meerut to Prayagraj will commence soon and Varanasi-Haridwar will be connected with the expressway in the second phase. In the next phase, Bareilly and Rampur will be also connected with the Ganga expressway.

The Bundelkhand expressway will also be connected with Prayagraj and Mirzapur districts, he said.
