This is how Ayodhya Bypass Project will facilitate economic, social and logistics connectivity across multiple districts and decongest Ayodhya

PM GatiShakti has spurred project planning and implementation of Ayodhya Bypass Project. The Project will facilitate economic, social and logistics connectivity across multiple districts. It will also facilitate uninterrupted freight flows and decongest Ayodhya.

Over the last two years 64 Network Planning Group (NPG) meetings have been held under PM GatiShakti to assess the comprehensive area-based socio-economic development of over 131 infrastructure projects. Ayodhya Bypass Project was evaluated during the 52nd NPG meeting as a critical infrastructure project.

Ayodhya Bypass Project is a 67.57 kms (Construction of 4/6 Lane Northern Ayodhya Bypass total length of 35.40 kms + Construction of 4/6 Lane Southern Ayodhya Bypass; Total length of 32.172 kms) Greenfield project that will cover key districts such as Lucknow, Basti, and Gonda. This project will facilitate improvement in connectivity to economic, social and logistics nodes, including tourist and pilgrim sites, across these three districts.

Ayodhya is situated between two economic hubs

Ayodhya is situated between two economic hubs (Lucknow and Gorakhpur) and major commodities such as leather, engineering goods, building materials, iron and steel, etc. pass through the city therefore the construction of this bypass route will facilitate uninterrupted freight flows and decongest the city.

This bypass which is expected to cater to multiple forecasted increase in passenger and freight vehicle movement (from 89,023 in 2023 to 2,16,928 in 2033).

Project will enhance multi-modality

This project will enhance multi-modality with integrated infrastructure such as Railway Stations (at Ayodhya Railway Station, Sohwal Railway Station, A N Dev Nagar Railway Station and Ayodhya Cantt Railway Station) and Airport (at Ayodhya Airport).

Airport connects Ayodhya to national and international transportation grid

The inauguration of the recent international airport in Ayodhya (Maharishi Valmiki International Airport) has marked a significant milestone, providing a convenient air travel option for visitors. This not only boosts tourism but also connects Ayodhya to the national and international transportation grid, fostering economic and cultural exchange.

The Railway Station in Ayodhya (Ayodhya Dham Junction Railway Station) has been redeveloped to meet modern standards, ensuring seamless connectivity with major cities across the country. The revamped station will facilitate movement of 60 thousand commuters compared to the current capacity of 10 thousand. 

Improved rail infrastructure not only facilitates the movement of people but also supports the efficient transportation of goods, contributing to regional economic development.
