The perceived need of the hour for the most populous Indian state is connectivity. Thus, the Uttar Pradesh Expressways Industrial Development Authority (UPEIDA) laid out a plan to build five expressways, one of which is the Purvanchal Expressway. Aimed at improving connectivity in Uttar Pradesh’s eastern region and built at Rs 224.95 billion, this 340.8-km expressway is India’s longest.
