The country’s longest expressway is ready in Uttar Pradesh. The name is Poorvanchal Expressway. Which starts from Lucknow and ends at Ghazipur. The length is about 341 kilometers. The government is currently preparing for its grand inauguration. Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself is reaching Sultanpur to attend.
The Yogi government has claimed that the Purvanchal Expressway is the longest highway ever built in any state. To know these claims of the government and the reality of the highway, Bhaskar’s team traveled 341 km. During this, the team also did an experiment for the quality test of the expressway. For this, the same formula was used, which was followed by former UP CM Akhilesh Yadav after the construction of Lucknow-Agra Expressway.
Street lights have also been arranged for night illumination on Purvanchal Expressway.
This test is known as the ‘water glass test’. When we started this test, first of all, a glass full of water was placed on the dashboard of the Innova car. Then drive the car at full speed of 100 for about 20 kms. During this, if the water filled in the glass is shaken, it must not spill. With this you can get an idea of how comfortable your journey is going to be on this expressway.
Yes, some work is yet to be done on the expressway. So you will get a little jerking on some patches, but if over time this too can be expected to get better over time.
