Upcoming Flyovers & Link Roads in Lucknow to rid commuters of traffic congestions

Both the expressways and the NHAI Outer Ring Road are owned by the state government.

In an effort to reduce the road traffic congestion in Lucknow, the authorities have decided to link the Outer Ring Road to Purvanchal Expressway and Agra Expressway. This move will seamlessly connect these two expressways to each other and the bottlenecks at many areas which occur on a daily basis, can be substantially brought down. Further plans suggest that a cloverleaf flyover will be formed to connect the Outer Ring Road and Purvanchal Expressway, near Sultanpur Road, which will be linked to the expressway. Likewise, the Outer Ring Road near Kakori, will be directly affixed to the Agra Expressway.

104-km long Ring Road will start and end at Kursi Road

Both the expressways and the NHAI Outer Ring Road are owned by the state government. The upcoming 104-km long ring road will start and end at Kursi Road and the expense of it will be approximately five thousand crores. It is slated to be completed & open to public by December 2021.

Further, a representative of the Union Defense Minister and Lucknow MP, Diwakar Tripathi, has stated that both the expressways will be connected to the Outer Ring Road. As soon as the work of the expressway is deal with, the link road will also be built on the other side. But if this development doesn't join directly with Agra and Purvanchal Expressway, then it'll yet again become a hassle for travelers because they'll need to come within the city to reach these expressways. In turn, it will increase traffic jams in Lucknow.
