From google maps, it seems that the merging road leaves you on the opposite on E-way & not on the side going towards Agra.
I wonder how long is the u-turn?

And, entering E-way from Vrindavan is a good idea? Or will I have to crawl through heavy city trafiic?
The road from Palwal to E way is in shambles with 10% road and 90% (huge) potholes. I regretted taking it last weekend. You need to cross the express way (under the fly over) and take right to climb up and take the e-way, just in case you decide to take this road.

Vrindavan is better Idea.

@sourabhzen; is right. SH22A is a total disaster, where even a tractor will be worried. Google Maps make me take it in October and negotiating it in my Civic was a total nightmare.

Thanks a lot guys for saving me. I would take the expressway from Vrindavan then.

Hi Guys,

The google maps is showing the following route to take from NH2 to Yamuna expressway via Vrindavan.

Yamuna Expressway - EDIT : Now opened for public use-vrindavan_eway.jpg

Any idea if this would be a good route, as Raya-Vrindavan road part seems to be quite narrow & interior city road?

There are two roads. One via Khurja Junction, which has been made into two lanes now (from Jewar to Khurja Jn it was one lane earlier). Much better drive, but lots of speed breakers due to several villages on the way.

While the other road goes to Sikandrabad I guess. This has an exit with a toll at 35 bucks.

The road via Khurja junction needs to be reached after exit and traveling on service lane along expressway towards Agra. However due to a flyover at railway crossing at Khurja junction there is some congestion.

The time stamp on the Rs.320 receipt at the Jewar Toll Gate read 9:24 pm. The car was on cruise control, locked in at an indicated 100 km/h on the speedo (not a GPS-logged 100). Stopped for 5 minutes to adjust some luggage and get better rear vision.

At the Mathura Toll Gate, the receipt was checked and returned. The red LED digital display board next to the barrier flashed **Speed Violation**. And I had to ask the chap at the counter what THAT was about.

Aapka average speed 115 kilometre hai. Yeh sirf warning ke liye hai, ki aap dheere chalayen.

Oh, really!? I have knowingly not exceeded 100 km/h at any point, and this guy is telling me I was doing an average of 115 km/h?

So I ask him how far the Jewar toll gate is from the Mathura toll gate. He tells me 55 km. And he also tells me that I covered that distance in 44 minutes (the time on my cellphone showed 10:08 pm, and the guy was correct on that count).

Now, what kind of mathematics gets an average speed of 115 km/h when you cover 55 km in 44 minutes?

My guess is, Jaypee is using some kind of psychological scare tactic to keep your speed down, well below the 100 km/h that is legal according to the road signs. In any case, they do not fine anyone for over-speeding - yet.

But if they do intend to start randomly collecting fines for over-speeding by telling you that you're doing 115 km/h when you didn't, I would say the motoring community needs to be aware of such intentions - and brush up on the mathematics (or carry a calculator)!

At the same cruise control setting, running without any stop, I did not get a **Speed Violation** warning at the Agra toll gate.

Quite so! I have had a couple of these warnings thrown at me at the Jewar plaza. Whilst, I did cringe initially at the profferred electronic admonition, later a quick mental calculation showed their instrument in error. So, I just ignored it. And yes I have observed this only at Jewar - not at the other toll-plazas

He said average speed?
When I was stopped, they said I was, er , over 100 at a speed cam. I didn't think they would be dying average speed checking.

It easily can be. Time taken between two toll gates can be system provided, distance they already know, simple mathematics.

Really?


What I'm saying is have they moved to doing that. That I didn't know about. And I was stopped just a couple of months back.

i was once told at Jewar that their camera / speed gun had noted the vehicle at 148 kmph. The guy did not mention about average speed. Because i was giving in to the temptation of pushing the pedal, i said i will drive within the limit and i was let go. But i have known people being fined. now the point raised by SS Traveller is interesting. I will let my friends know about this 'average' concept.
