New Delhi, Nov 16: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the Purvanchal Expressway at Karwal Kheri in Uttar Pradesh’s Sultanpur district on Tuesday.

Modi will also watch an airshow by the Indian Air Force on the 3.2 km long airstrip built on the Expressway to facilitate landing and take-off of Indian Air Force fighter planes in the event of an emergency, according to the PMO.

Calling it a special day for Uttar Pradesh’s growth trajectory, PM Modi said, “This project brings with it multiple benefits for UP’s economic and social progress.”

The Purvanchal Expressway has been constructed at an estimated cost of about Rs 22,500 crore. It will connect the state capital Lucknow with the eastern districts including Mau, Azamgarh, Barabanki with the major cities of Prayagraj and Varanasi.

The 341-km Purvanchal Expressway will originate from Chandsarai village on the Lucknow-Sultanpur highway.

The expressway is six lanes wide and will be expanded to eight lanes in the future.
