The Expressway will directly link Gorakhpur with the under-construction Purvanchal Expressway. Oriental Structural Engineering, Apco Infratech, PNC Infratech, Dilip Buildcon, NCC (India), and Ashoka Buildcon are among the other companies that have submitted technical bids. The 91 km long Gorakhpur Link Expressway will be developed in two different packages, for which the nodal agency, the Uttar Pradesh Expressway Industrial Development Authority (UPEIDA), has received a total of 21 bids from 13 companies.

The Expressway will cut through Gorakhpur, Sant Kabir Nagar, Ambedkar Nagar and Azamgarh districts. Of the total project cost of Rs 5,877 crore, around Rs 3,000 crore is expected to be spent on civil works alone.

Recently, the state had also completed technical bidding for another mega infrastructure project, Bundelkhand Expressway, estimated to cost Rs 14,850 crore. It will link the arid zone with mainland UP for ushering in faster socioeconomic development.

For Bundelkhand Expressway, 18 bidders including L&T, Megha Engineering, KNR (JV), GR Infra Projects, Afcons Infrastructure, Apco Infratech, HG Infra Project, JMC Projects India, PNC Infratech, Dilip Buildcon, Ashoka Buildcon, etc had submitted technical bids. It is proposed to be completed in six packages.

For 296 km Bundelkhand Expressway, Rs 7,000 crore will be raised through bank loans and the remaining funds will be provided by the government. The Bank of Baroda (BoB) had already agreed to give Rs 2,000 crore loan for 296 km for the project.

So far, the state had acquired 90 percent of the required 3,641 ha for Bundelkhand Expressway, which will traverse Jhansi, Banda, Hamirpur, Mahoba, Jalaun, Auraiya and Etawah districts, and touch Agra-Lucknow Expressway at Etawah.
