Adani & IRB Win Ganga Expressway’s Construction Work

Adani Enterprises and IRB Infrastructure Developers on Wednesday emerged as the preferred bidders for developing the 594 km Ganga Expressway connecting Meerut and Prayagraj on the public-private partnership (PPP) mode under Design, Built, Finance, Operate and Transfer (DBFOT) basis.

This six lane access-controlled expressway by Uttar Pradesh Expressways Industrial Development Authority (UPEIDA) will have a 120m ROW (right of way) and is designed to be expandable to 8 lanes in the future. More design details can be viewed here.

Ganga Expressway’s Phase 1 has been divided up into 4 groups for development with each group comprising of 3 civil packages. The concession period is 30 years and land acquisition progress currently stands at 94% completion.

Quick Summary

Detailed information on each group with maps for each can be viewed here.

  • Group 1: IRB Infrastructure Developers (Meerut – Amroha districts, 129.700 km)
  • Group 2: Adani Enterprises (Budaun – Hardoi districts, 151.700 km)
  • Group 3: Adani Enterprises (Hardoi – Unnao districts, 155.700 km)
  • Group 4: Adani Enterprises (Unnao – Prayagraj districts, 156.947 km)

UPEIDA invited RFQ applications in March 2021 with a 3 year deadline. The rudimentary route maps displayed below are straight from the tender document and give a rough idea about the expressway’s alignment.

Technical bids were opened by UPEIDA last week reveal they received a total of 12 bids – one for each group – from Adani, Ashoka Buildcon and IRB.

On the Meerut-end, the expressway will be connected to the Delhi – Meerut Expressway’s upcoming Phase 5. That phase envisions the construction of a 14.60 km Zainuddinpur to Jahidpur connector and APS Hydro emerged as its lowest bidder in November. On the eastern-end, the expressway will end at Prayagraj Bypass.

      Did you even read about the projects ?

      Unlike others who survive on crumbs thrown by central govt , our state govts have built all these expressways on their own.
      UPEIDA is the nodal agency.
      Cope up.
      Instead of accusing and abusing the people of up bongs should learn a thing or two from us .
      Heard that central will build some expressways connecting Kolkata and patna that will benefit WB and Bihar the most .

      We are building infra on our own , hope NHAI takes us more seriously and give us some projects too.

      Pls ask this to Mamta ji not to modi ji that why she has no Infrastructural plan for developing their state. Its absolutely not that modi developing only BJP or bjp allianced state. He is doing what are required and demanded by state governments. But it is obsolutly right that BJP led state growing very fast bcz of their commitment to their people for development. They are doing all possible to make a world class infrastructure in india. They visions, they r on mission, they r Hardworking and committed for development.

      As we all know, BJP doesn’t like West Bengal for not bringing win. They can’t say officially. But that’s the truth, unlike we Rajasthan doesn’t have proper Rail Connectivity since we never had Railway Min from state.

      This is how it works.

    The bidding outcome basically means that UP government has got a 50% discount on construction cost (expense dipping to Rs 15/km from Rs 30/km) at the expense of relinquishing tolling rights for 10-15 years. Maza nahin aaya….they should not have attempted BOT heroics. Perhaps they were day-dreaming about ‘negative grant’ flowing in for this project.

    Hello TMRG, will you be adding more expressways on your website? There are multiple new expressways being executed in India (approved/tendering). For eg. Surat-Chennai, Delhi-Panipat, Sohna Elevated Road, 4 expressways in Bihar, etc. Your website is a great way to track infra updates. Great work!!!

    In Bihar, Buxar-Bhagalpur (I think extension of Ghazipur-Patna) Expressway, Raxual-Haldia (includes Patna-Kolkata I guess) Expressway, Aurangabad-Jaynagar Expressway (2 tenders already invited for construction) and Ghazipur-Siliguri Expressway (newly announced). Some others are also there at different places in India. Additionally, there are Varanasi, Ghaziabad and Shimla ropeways for public transport.

    so, soon there will be two greenfield Ganga Expressways..

    1. by UPEIDA – running along the left bank of Ganga from Hapur to Kanpur
    2. by NHAI – running along the right bank of Ganga from Hapur to Kanpur

    ..I just hope there is enough traffic to make the investment viable; hope they are not overdoing it..
