Yamuna Expressway

The Yamuna Expressway is an ambitious project, which aims at reducing the time usually a traveler has to spend while moving to and fro between New Delhi and Agra. Alongside, the project also aims at opening up avenues for all round development of the region by providing a base for the establishment of tourism and other allied industries and promoting urban settlement.

The project was earlier known as Taj Expressway.

Taj Mahal has been the greatest attraction for the tourists visiting India. The usual way to reach Agra, the city where this monument is located, is through Delhi, which is at a distance of about 210 km by road. A return trip between the two cities normally takes nine to ten hours, which leaves a traveler with very less time to visit the Taj and other historical monuments in Agra.

Taj Expressway Authority

In order to cut significantly the travel time between the two cities, an eight lane Access Controlled Expressway has been proposed by the Government of Uttar Pradesh under the name of Taj Expressway, which was later changed to Yamuna Expressway. Subsequently, Taj Expressway Industrial Development Authority (TEA) was constituted to construct 160 km long expressway between Greater Noida and Agra and also to prepare a master plan for the development of the region lying along the expressway. More than 334 villages of District Gautam Budh Nagar, Aligarh, Mahamaya Nagar (Hatras), Bulandshahar, Mathura and Agra have been brought under the notification for development of basic amenities, such as drainage, electrification and feeder roads.
