Traffic movement on Agra-Lucknow Expressway will remain restricted for five days from October 20 in view of the flying exercise planned by the Indian Force. Vehicles coming from Agra to Lucknow on the access-controlled expressway would have to take a detour from Aarol interchange (chainage 219+324) in Kanpur, according to press release put out by UP Expressways and Industrial Development Authority (UPEIDA).
Commuters would have to get down from the expressway near Arol interchange and travel for around 6 kilometer on road leading to Kanpur and then take the left turn and head for Billor-Bangarmau Road. From Bangarmau they would have to proceed to the road going to Miaganj, Hasanganj and Mohan to reach Lucknow. The same route would have to be taken by commuters travelling from Lucknow to Agra.
The distance from Arol interchange to Billor-Bangarmau turning is six kilometres and Bangarmau is 23 kilometres from there. Commuters would have to travel for another 68 kilometer to reach Lucknow via Miaganj, Hasanganj and Mohan, according to UPEIDA.
The Agra-Lucknow Expressway was inaugurated by former UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav and Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav on November 21 last year.
The highlight of the inaugural ceremony was the touchdown by eight IAF combat aircrafts. A two kilometer stretch of the e-way in Bangarmau in Unnao has been specially prepared for landing of aircrafts in case of emergency.
