Parts Of UP’s Newly-Inaugurated Bundelkhand Expressway Damaged In Rain
New Delhi: Rains resulted in parts of the Bundelkhand Expressway caving in on Wednesday, barely a week after its inauguration by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on July 16. It has caved in at Chhiriya near Salempur, where two cars and a motorcycle got into accidents last night. A similar cave-in was seen near Ajitmal in Auraiya.
Some news reports quoted officials as saying repairs have already been carried out, NDTV reported.
The four-lane expressway of 296 kilometres connects Bharatkoop in Chitrakoot with Kudrel in Etawah, passing through seven districts.
The Rs 8,000 crore project has the capacity to be widened to six lanes.
