Ashoka Buildcon Achieves New Milestones at Bundelkhand Expressway

The Bundelkhand Expressway is a 296-km long, 4-lane wide (expandable to 6 lanes) access-controlled expressway in the state of Uttar Pradesh. It will connect Gonda village in Chitrakoot district with Agra–Lucknow Expressway at Kudrail village in Etawah district.

The Expressway is being developed by the Uttar Pradesh Expressway Industrial Development Authority (UPEIDA), Government of Uttar Pradesh, with an estimated cost of ₹14,716 crore (including land cost). The project was launched in April 2017 by the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath.

Ashoka Buildcon is constructing one of the six packages (Package III) in the Bundelkhand Expressway. The package stretches 49 km from Kaohari (Dist. Mahoba) to Baroli Kharka (Dist. Hamirpur) in Uttar Pradesh, at an estimated cost of ₹1079 cr.

  • 3037 tons of DBM generated from a single plant in one calendar day
  • Completion of dual carriageway of 2.19 km length and width of 11.25 meters

Continuing its tradition of setting new benchmarks in the construction industry, Ashoka Buildcon has once again demonstrated by successfully laying 12,700 tons of DBM, non-stop, in a span of 61 hours. This resulted in the construction of 2.19 km of a four-lane dual carriageway.

This achievement is the result of meticulous planning for procuring all the materials on time, allocating appropriate human resources for continuous operation, ensuring plant and machinery in working condition, besides applying risk mitigating strategies such as keeping spares on standby to minimize disruptions, ensuring safety of workmen etc. A contingent plan to achieve this mission was also in place by deploying OEM crew of Pavers and Hot mix Plant to ensure continuity in the project without any hitch.

The mammoth task was achieved with the complete support of UPEIDA, which is being led by its CEO, Avinash Awasthi, along with Chief Engineer Manoj Gupta, and the efforts of PIU Consultants, ICT Ltd, and external technical auditor RITES.

The mission kicked off in the early hours of April 16, 2021 and was completed late in the evening of April 18, 2021. It was a power-packed effort where man and machine were put to the test in a race against time. About 20 engineers and managers, 32 surveyors and supervisors, 20 quality control personnel, 200 operators and drivers, and more than 70 labourers were deployed across three days to accomplish the mammoth task. The fleet of mechanical assets included two hot mix plants (200 TPH), Sensor Pavers (11.50m width), 5 Tandem Rollers, 2 Pneumatic Tyred Rollers, and about 150 dumpers for transportation of the bituminous mix.
