The total length of the highway is 34 kilometres and is constructed at a cost of over 1500 crore rupees. The roads have been constructed by NHAI under Bharatmala programme. The function will be held in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh. 

Road, Transport and Highways Ministry in a release said, this will reduce travel time, fuel usage and pollution in the area. 

The Ring Road will provide easier and more convenient access to Sarnath, an important site for Buddhist pilgrimage.
