New Delhi - Agra : Yamuna Expressway

Hi All, I would like to share this post with all of you

"Yamuna Expressway, formerly known as Taj Expressway, is a 6-lane (extendable to 8 lanes), 165 km long, controlled-access expressway, connecting Greater Noida with Agra in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. It is India's longest six-laned controlled-access expressway stretch. The Yamuna Expressway was formally inaugurated on 9 August 2012 , about two years ahead of its original target completion date."

They say it would take roughly 2 hrs to reach Agra, Taj which sounds much better than painful 5.5 hrs.

Cheers !

Just a few weeks too late. However the roller coaster ride we know as the "Road to Agra" wouldn't have been the same on this new road!
