UP Expressway Industrial Development Authority CEO Navneet Sehgal said Agra-Lucknow expressway will be the largest runway in the country which will be completed in the shortest time. He also confirmed the strength of runway is sufficient enough to work as a runway for the jet aircraft.

A delegation of officers from Air Force Station Bakshi Ka Talab in Lucknow had met UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav to seal the deal on the issue.

The IAF had also proposed to bear the cost of the project. Sehgal said the land is purchased from a total of 30 thousand farmers and their dues were immediately paid to them.
