The newly opened Yamuna Expressway connecting New Delhi to Taj Mahal in Agra has brought big smiles to time-pressed tourists taking flights to India. The motorway has halved the distance between the two famous ‘Golden Triangle’ cities.
Travellers taking flights to India to get a glimpse of the ever beautiful ‘Taj Mahal’ can now enjoy a shorter and comfortable journey from the country’s capital city New Delhi to Agra.
Yamuna Expressway, the country’s longest six-lane access-controlled motorway that connects Agra with New Delhi has been inaugurated.
The motorway has cut down the distance between the capital and Agra from the earlier 210 km to 165 km and the driving time by more than half, making it convenient for the vacationers to explore the three World Heritage Sites without complaints of tedious journey through the crammed roads. Earlier the travel between two cities took about five hours.
The new route is sure to bring smiles to the time pressed vacationers taking flights to Delhi and connecting to Agra as they can now have an extended rendezvous with the Taj!
Taj Mahal mirrors the precious architectural heritage of the country and with a passionate love story engraved in its soil, is one of the key lures that entice international vacationers into bagging cheap flights to India. This one of the Seven Wonders of the World is also a priceless gem of India’s famous “Golden Triangle Circuit” and thus has always attracted both locals and foreign travellers taking flights to the country.
The monument especially attracts a large number of executives who take flights to India’s capital for business and seek a quick leisurely getaway.
A toll fee of around INR 320 (less than £4) will be charged for using the new motorway.
