For the proposed 270-km expressway between Agra and Lucknow no road developers have come forward. The Expressway project is a pet project of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav. The proposed express way is an eight-lane Greenfield project.
The Expressway project was conceptualised in 2012, soon after the Samajwadi Party took power, the project was much hyped at business meets.
But the lukewarm interest in the Rs 10,000 crore project has crashed the hopes of the government to shore up Uttar Pradesh's image as a business destination, say media reports.
