Uttar Pradesh government has set a stiff two-year deadline for completion of India’s longest access-controlled Lucknow-Agra Expressway, construction for which began on Sunday at five different locations. Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav laid the foundation stone for the 302-km long road hoping that the 110-meter wide, six lane expressway, that promises to cut Lucknow-Agra travel time to four hours, changes the economic landscape of the state. Navneet Sehgal, CEO of UP Expressway Industrial Development Authority ( UPEIDA), said 85% of the land required for the project has been acquired. The Rs 15,000-crore project is expected to draw industry to the state and create jobs. The project being built under the EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction) model has been divided into five parts.
