National highway projects in Uttar Pradesh

Shri Nitin Gadkari, the Union Minister of Road Transport & Highways, has launched and laid the cornerstone for several National Highway projects, making substantial progress towards advancing Uttar Pradesh’s development.

The foundation stone for two ambitious projects worth a combined ₹ 1750 crore was placed by Shri Gadkari in the district of Mirzapur, which holds great religious and environmental significance. One of the highlights is a 15-kilometre-long, 4-lane Mirzapur bypass with a 6-lane bridge across the Ganga. Concurrently, a 59-kilometer section of National Highways 35 and 330 that links Prayagraj to Pratapgarh and Mirzapur to Prayagraj will undergo significant rehabilitation work. The completion of these projects will see an increase in tourism and the economies of Prayagraj and Purvanchal. The 4-lane Mirzapur bypass project is anticipated to boost trade by lessening traffic congestion and enhancing the link between Mirzapur and Ayodhya.

Ten National Highway projects worth ₹ 10,000 crore were officially opened by Shri Nitin Gadkari at Jaunpur, Uttar Pradesh. To reduce traffic congestion and encourage industrial development, two bypasses have been built in Jaunpur city, and a ring road has been completed. The minister highlighted last-mile and multi-modal connectivity as essential elements of the PM Gatishakti National Master Plan, underscoring its significant advancements.

In addition, the Prayagraj-Dohrighat Corridor Project—which spans the districts of Prayagraj, Jaunpur, and Azamgarh—has been moving forward under four packages. The Purvanchal Motorway Corridor seeks to ease traffic in major commercial centres like Phulpur, Mungarabadpur, Machhilishahr, Jaunpur, and Azamgarh. Connecting 11 National Highways, 2 State Highways, 5 railway stations, and 2 airports. According to Shri Gadkari, the project will not only create a smooth connection but also provide significant economic advantages and job prospects for youth, farmers, consumers, and businesses.

Furthermore, eight National Highway projects totaling ₹ 4142 crores were inaugurated in Rae Bareli by Shri Nitin Gadkari. The minister emphasised that the completion of these projects is essential for improving connectivity both inside the state and throughout the country, citing the historical and religious significance of areas such as Prayagraj, Rae Bareli, and Sultanpur. With the construction of 424 km of new roads and related development projects, Uttar Pradesh is set to become a major force behind the nation’s infrastructural and economic development.
