Ganga Expressway, Patna, Bihar, India: An ambitious project

It is an ambitious expressway project along the bank of river Ganga in patna.  It would be 22 km long four lane congestion free road link within Patna. Early this year the state government has sought financial assistance from the Asian Development Bank for its ambitious project.

Navayuga Engineering, a Visakhapatanam-based firm has finally bagged the contract to construct the Bihar government’s dream project of expressway along the bank of river Ganges.Work on the project will start in October 2013 and will be thrown open to traffic in 2017.To be built on the line of Mumbai’s Marine Drive, the proposed expressway will stretch from Deedarganj in Patna City on the eastern flank of the city to Digha Ghat in the west.

The project will be completed in two phase. The proposed expressway will cover the stretch between Didarganj and Digha in the first phase while the second phase will extend it further east by 18 kilometers up to Fatuha. About seven kilometres of the road will be elevated.
Bihar State Road Construction Corporation has been tasked to execute and monitor the project.

In August 2012, the state government had approved the much-awaited 21.5-km long Deedarganj to Digha Ghat Ganga Expressway project.
