PNC Infratech Ltd. today emerged as the lowest bidder to construct both packages of the 62.7 km Kanpur – Lucknow Expressway (NE-6) project after the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) opened financial bids.

This 6 lane access-controlled highway will be upgradeable to 8 lanes and connect Shaheed Path in Lucknow with Azad Marg Chauraha near Kanpur’s Ganga Bridge.

It will run parallel to NH27 and consist of a 3.375 km elevated portion between Amausi and Bani which lies under Package 1’s scope. Package 2 connecting the town of Bani with Azad Marg Chauraha will be built on a greenfield alignment.

NHAI invited tenders for both packages’ contract under the Hybrid Annuity Mode (HAM) model in September 2021 with a 2.5 year deadline.
