It is located in the Gautam Budh Nagar district and is about 30kms from Delhi.

Yamuna Expressway - Greater Noida

This is India's longest 6- lane controlled accessway. This expressway connects Agra with Greater Noida and the main purpose was to decrease the travel time between these two places and also reduce the traffic congestion that usually used to occur on this way. The plan of this expressway was first proposed by Mayawati and was widely accepted when she was the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. The project was later completed during the rule of Akhilesh Yadav as the Chief Minister. This is an extremely urban experessway with SOS Booths and CCTV Camera at a distance of every 5 kilomteres.
I rode straight to the starting point of Yamuna Expressway on the Greater Noida Highway just next to the Knowledge Park-III. I was sure that the ride was going to be comfortably smooth & blazing as I was riding on the well-laid tarmac put decently by Jaypee Group. Gotta say, job well done! First thing you’d notice while you are riding there is that the tarmac is completely different from what our National Highways are laid with. It’s a 6-lane well-protected from both sides by guard mesh so that no one from either side could get stranded in the middle of a speeding highway, plus it’s a relief for the people who take on the road. Although, lane driving is essential, one can easily maintain decent speeds, for the highway is less crowded & has no pit stops except for the ones next to the Toll Plazas located at 50kms from one another. You heard it right, the only restaurants/rest rooms/drinking water facility you would find on this road are built next to the Toll Plazas. Not a good news for some of us who like to take short breaks during long rides. See for yourself! But to ease off the shock, I gotta tell you that the Highway Helpline is hyper-active & any help you need while on the road reaches you within minutes. The authorities have deployed service cars & toe-vehicles at regular stretches down the highway to avoid delays in case of any mishaps.

Taj Expressway - Greater Noida

Also known as the Yamuna Expressway, it was opened for use in the year 200. This is a 6- lane controlled expressway and also the longest one of this type in the whole country. The expressway is named as Taj or Yamuna because Agra is known for the beautiful Taj Mahal and is on the banks of the River Yamuna. This expressway connects Greater Noida region with Agra and has reduced the travel time and also the congestion caused by the vehicles during a busy day. The urbanization of technology is evident by the use of modern means of building in this project and also the installation of SOS services and CCTV Cameras.

Yamuna Expressway Authority - Greater Noida

Also known as the TEA or the Taj Expressway Authority, this was a body commissioned to carry the project of the Yamuna Expressway whose proposition was first placed by the former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Mayawati. After the bill was passed, she herself supervised the building of a strong Authorised body with a number of able architects, engineers and technicians who started the project which is now the longest 6- lane controlled expressway of the country.
