Expressway to go from Bihar to UP and Bengal will pass through these 10 districts



Bihar will get the gift of another expressway. Expressway will be constructed from Gorakhpur to Siliguri. Most of this road will pass through different districts of North Bihar. This road will prove to be a lifeline for North Bihar. Bihar will not only ease the traffic between UP and Bengal, but it will also open new avenues of trade. The Central Government has given in-principle consent for the construction of this expressway. After this, the road construction department has started the process of realizing this road.

At present there is no direct road between Gorakhpur to Siliguri. Because of this, it is taking up to a day to cover the distance from Gorakhpur to Siliguri. Whereas the proposed Gorakhpur-Siliguri Expressway will reduce the distance between the two cities to less than 600 kms. Out of this six-eight-lane expressway, 416 km will pass through Bihar. That is, Bihar will benefit the most from the construction of this expressway.

Bihar is still far behind in terms of expressways. In view of this, in the past, the central government has decided to build an expressway between Gorakhpur and Siliguri. The proposed expressway will start from Gorakhpur and enter Gopalganj in Bihar. After this it will go to Siliguri via Siwan, Chhapra, Muzaffarpur, Sitamarhi, Madhubani, Supaul, Saharsa, Purnia, Kishanganj. The entire part of this expressway will be greenfield. There is no plan to include any old road in the expressway. Since the speed of trains on expressways is more than 100 hours per km. This is possible only if the road is straight. In view of this, the alignment of this road will be decided in such a way that this expressway goes directly from Gorakhpur to Siliguri. This road will be constructed away from the population so that there will not be much problem in land acquisition.

Bihar’s fourth expressway will be

This proposed road between Gorakhpur to Siliguri will be the fourth expressway of Bihar. The process of construction of expressway between Aurangabad to Jaynagar is going on. The land acquisition work has been done for this road and soon its tender will be issued. On the other hand, the second expressway will be from Raxaul to Kolkata via Patna. A proposal for the construction of this expressway has been sent to the Center under Bharatmala-II. Third expressway is proposed between Buxar to Bhagalpur. Now the exercise of construction of third expressway between Gorakhpur to Siliguri has started. This expressway will also have connectivity with other roads including Gorakhpur-Azamgarh Link Expressway in UP. In this way it will be easy to travel from Siliguri to major cities of UP as well as Delhi.
