The first section of the NH will run between Kanpur and Kabrai and will connect to the Lucknow Green and Bundelkhand Eways. When this road project is finished, Bundelkhand will have direct access to metro cities, and the distance between Mahoba and Bhopal will be reduced from the current 10 hours via Jhansi to just 5 hours.
On 13th March, the two leaders also laid the foundation for three additional projects: the Rs 63.75 crore Kidari railway crossing, the Rs 78.5 crore Supa railway crossing, and the Rs 50.77 crore Matong crossing over bridge.

As Per CM Yogi Adityanath
In Mahoba, Uttar Pradesh CM Adityanath mentioned, “Under the guidance of the President and Prime Minister, the state had recently received investment proposals of Rs 35 lakh crore during the UP Global Business Summit. The huge investment proposals came because people started realizing that the state’s security situation has improved of late and also the state infrastructure has become better. Due to these heavy investments, we will be able to give employment to one crore youth of the state in the coming three years. Now, the youth of Uttar Pradesh do not have to migrate to other regions for jobs.”
Gadkari was also praised by CM Yogi for improving the road infrastructure across the country. “Under the guidance of Gadkariji, new road connectivity has come up and the highway network has improved manifolds which have taken India to new heights. The world is stunned about how come to India, despite being in the grip of the Covid pandemic, is growing so fast now. Big infrastructure boost is one of the reasons behind India’s exponential growth.”
