UP government's Ganga Expressway project has received the Environmental Clearance from the UP’s state-level environmental impact assessment committee. The greenfield six-lane expressway project, being built at an estimated cost of ₹36,230 crore, connects Meerut in west UP to Prayagraj in the eastern part of the state.
The proposed Ganga Expressway will be around 594 km long, a 6-lane wide (expandable to eight lanes) greenfield expressway. The expressway will pass through 12 districts of UP - Meerut, Hapur, Bulandshahar, Amroha, Sambhal, Badaun, Shahjahanpur, Hardoi, Unnao, Raebareli, Pratapgarh, and Prayagraj.
The UP government has also received the sanction letter of a ₹5,100 crore loan for the Ganga Expressway project from the Punjab National Bank.
