Uttar Pradesh’s Bundelkhand Expressway has created a new record by continuously laying 19,756 tonnes of bituminous concrete, paving a 14.51 Km wide carriageway in 93 hours.

The record was created by Ashoka Buildcon Ltd, which is building package – 3 of the project. The 49 Km long package – 3 of Bundelkhand Expressway being built with Rs 1,079 crore goes through Kaouhri, Mahoba district to Brolikharka, Hamirpur district.

With this new record of laying 19,756 tonnes of bituminous concrete, Ashoka Buildcon Ltd has broken its record created in April 2021.

The 296 Km long Bundelkhand Expressway begins at village Kudrail in district Etawah on the Agra-Lucknow expressway and ends near Bharatkoop in Chitrakoot district.

Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh has taken up this expressway to accelerate development in the Bundelkhand area, especially in less developed districts like Chitrakoot, Banda, Hamirpur, and Jalaun.

This expressway will be four lanes (expandable up to six lanes) with six lanes wider structures.

A service road of 3.75-metre width will be constructed at one side of the expressway in a staggered form so that residents of nearby villages of the project area may get a smooth transportation facility.

More than 75 per cent physical work of the Bundelkhand Expressway is complete, and the remaining construction is going on at a fast pace.

Also, 96 per cent of earthwork in the main carriageway and construction of 775 of total 882 structures is completed.

The construction cost is estimated to be more than Rs 7,700 crore. The project has been divided into six packages. Contracts have been constituted with developers like Apco Infratech, Ashoka Buildcon, Gavar Construction and Dilip Buildcon.

With the construction of the expressway, the Bundelkhand area will be linked with a fast and smooth traffic corridor to the Agra-Lucknow expressway and Yamuna expressway, thus further connected to the National Capital Region (NCR Delhi).
