Purvanchal Expressway has reduced the distance between Patna and Delhi by about 150 km. At present, the shortest route from the state capital to the country’s capital is via Gopalganj-Lucknow-Agra. It takes minimum 17 to 18 hours to cover this distance of 1088 km. Just 18 km away from the border of Buxar district, Hydaria Purvanchal Expressway of Ghazipur in UP is the last end.
The distance from Patna to Delhi via Buxar via Purvanchal Expressway has now come down to 946 km. It will now take a maximum of 12 hours to reach Delhi from Patna. Same time as Patna-Delhi Rajdhani Tejas train takes. Travel time will further reduce in future when Patna-Buxar becomes four lane. Right now the work of stretch from Koilvar to Patna is stuck. In future there is a plan to connect Purvanchal Expressway with Bhagalpur also.
Delhi is not far
Our fighter aircraft will be able to deal with China-Pakistan, easy access to the North-East border
Air Force planes showed their strength by landing and takeoff on Purvanchal Expressway. After landing on the expressway directly from the PM’s Super Hercules, 30 aircraft reached there. Modi also watched the air show here. The touch and go operation of aircraft like Sukhoi 30 and Mirage 2000 on the 3.2 km long air strip lasted for about an hour. Most notably, this would be the first expressway to be used for emergency use during the war with China on the Eastern Front.
Our city is in JD from the airbase built at an altitude of 14 thousand feet of China
After the Doklam dispute, China has built 16 airbases at an altitude of 14,000 feet. 5 airbases and many cities of UP, Uttarakhand and Bihar come under the control of China’s long range missiles.
Plan B… because if the airbase is destroyed then these will come in handy
Under the Air Force’s Plan B, the expressway will be used in case the airbase is destroyed in the war. Operations like Touch and Go will be continued to make China and Pakistan feel their power.
