This is an excellent thread!! I though Mayawati could not sink any lower with her Caste Statue BS - but this might just be her saving grace. Its good to know our "All Bad" Politicians are evolving.

Ganga Expressway project to affect 1,024 villages

Quote:
The Ganga Expressway Project would affect 1,024 villages. These villages would come under the `right of way' (ROW) plan of the expressway. Surprisingly, the state government has no statistics regarding the population and the families which are going to be affected by the project. This came to light when a query was asked by corporator Kamlesh Singh under RTI Act. Kamlesh's question was: How many villages are going to be affected by the Ganga Expressway Project and what is the population of these villages and the number of families which are going to be affected? The answer has been provided by Prabhu Shankar, under secretary in Industrial Development Section of the state government through letter number 4261(1)/77-3-09, dated January 11.

To a question that how many hectares of agricultural land would be acquired and the quantity of crops produced there, the answer was: According to the directives of Allahabad High Court issued on May 29, 2009, the government was told to obtain clearance on environment. The department said that it would be able to give information regarding agricultural land only after obtaining clearance. Pointedly, 14,705 hectares of land would be acquired.

The most ambitious project announced by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati, the Ganga Expressway, failed to impress voters even though it came along with a promise of development to the remotest parts of east UP. Of the 17districts through which the Expressway is supposed to pass, the BSP could win only two seats.

Mayawati laid the foundation stone for the Rs 30,000-crore 1,047-km Ganga Expressway joining Ballia in the far east of the state to Greater Noida on January 15, 2008. It was said to reduce the journey from Ballia to Delhi to less than eight hours and there were claims that the project would bring in huge investments in the hinterland.

As per the latest alignment report of JAL, which was assigned the project, the Expressway is to pass through Ballia, Ghazipur, Varanasi, Mirzapur, Allahabad, Pratapgarh, Rae Bareli, Unnao, Kanpur, Hardoi, Shahjahanpur, Farrukhabad, Etah, Badaun, Aligarh, Bulandshahr and Gautambudhnagar (Greater Noida). The BSP could win Gautambudhnagar and Aligarh. One reason why the Ganga Expressway failed to win admirers was that there has been little work on the project. Even land acquisition is incomplete. Sources in the Government said the project was deliberately put on hold to avoid farmers’ agitations over land acquisition as over 62,000 hectares will be required. The Government has already faced strong agitation of farmers during the acquisition of land for the Yamuna Expressway. Incidentally, the SP and the BJP, had been raising the issue of floods and displacement of farmers. ENS

UP being the most populated state in the country - anytime any project being launched will irrevocably run into "Land Aquisition" problem. There are too many people - and the highest people density per square km. Does this mean NO development project should ever be initiated since every single one will involve displacement?

It does becomes funny by human standards of humour when you multiply a figure by 30.

Jaypee's huge outlay on Ganga Expressway project

Quote:
The Jaypee Group of Industries on Tuesday announced that it would invest Rs. 70,000 crore in the next five years to build the ambitious 1,047 km long Noida-Ballia Ganga Expressway project. It also said that the Yamuna Expressway project would be completed two years ahead of schedule by March 2011.

Addressing a press conference here to announce the opening of the forthcoming initial public offering (IPO) of Jaypee Infratech Limited to raise Rs. 1,650 crore, group Chairman J. P. Gaur said the Ganga Expressway project was ready and all the alignment works had been approved.

Jaypee Group firm Jaypee Ganga Infrastructure Corp had signed an agreement with Uttar Pradesh Expressways Industrial Development Authority (UPEIDA) in 2008 for constructing an eight-lane expressway connecting Greater Noida and Ballia. At present, Japyee Infratech was executing the Yamuna Expressway project connecting New Delhi with Agra. The project, originally scheduled for completion in April 2013, would be thrown open for traffic by April 2011, Jaypee Group Managing Director Manoj Gaur said.

Giving details of the Ganga Expressway project, Jaypee Infratech Director-in-Charge, Sameer Gaur, said “We have sorted out all the issues. We will acquire 33,000 acres for the project, of which the expressway will alone require 28,000 acres.”

He said the company would require about Rs. 70,000 crore for the entire project which will include land acquisition cost. Out of the total amount, the company would invest Rs. 35,000-38,000 crore in constructing the expressway, he added. Mr. Manoj Gaur said the firm would also develop 6,175 acres at five locations along the expressway for commercial, industrial, institutional, residential and amusement purposes.

The company will hit the capital market on April 29 with its IPO in which 6 crore shares would be issued by the existing promoters.

The IPO will be through 100 per cent book building process with the price band fixed at Rs. 102-117 per share.

I can see some great road construction from google earth. I think this is of the Ganga expressway only. It seems this road bypasses ALD and BSB and ends at Ballia (somewhere east of Sarnath). I am posting links of wikimapia here so eevryone can see it:
I think they are executing road in phases and work of all phases have not yet commenced.

Start of GANGA EXPRESSWAY phase X:

End of phase:
