Road next to Noida airport to connect Eastern Peripheral and Yamuna expressways


The upcoming Noida international airport located at Jewar will be located close to a key interchange road that will directly connect to Haryana and other northern states via the Eastern Peripheral Expressway (EPE). The foundation stone for the road linking EPE to the Yamuna Expressway was laid on Friday by Uttar Pradesh Chief Secretary Durga Shanker Mishra and Jewar MLA Dhirendra Singh.

Dhirendra Singh highlighted the significance of the connectivity, stating, “The upcoming airport will witness heavy footfall once completed. It will be Asia’s largest (airport), hence there will be optimum connectivity.

This loop will connect the Eastern Peripheral to Yamuna Expressway. The EPE is connected to the Western Peripheral Expressway (WPE), and ultimately, the connectivity to Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Haryana, and other states will drastically improve.”

The first flight from the under-construction international airport is expected to take off by November next year. The project has been a focal point for the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party in their election campaigns in the state, showcasing their developmental projects.

Once completed, the airport will become Asia’s largest and the world’s fourth-largest international airport.

Singh also mentioned that various other modes of establishing connectivity to the upcoming airport are under consideration. “There will be direct connectivity to the Metro route, and a special bus service is also being considered,” he added.
