Akhilesh writes to PM to expedite road projects in UP

Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav today shot off a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi requesting him to direct officials concerned to speed up certain road projects in Lucknow and Varanasi.

The Chief Minister requested the Prime Minister to direct officials to give working permission for a proposed bridge, a flyover and broadening of a road in Lucknow, according to an official release.

Akhilesh also requested for release of Rs 396.54 crores for four laning of Shivpur-Lahartara road in Varanasi at the earliest, it said.

The CM stated that the proposed Pipraghat bridge on Gomti has been stopped because of the objections raised by Army for which letters have been sent to the defence minister in the past.
