In recent times, the speed violation has been taken very strictly as compared to when the road opened up 3 years ago. I often travel to Delhi from Agra, have been pulled over at the Mathura toll a couple of times when the toll ticket is scanned by the operator.

There are formal traffic policemen at the toll barriers who escort you to the side while the toll operator confiscates the toll ticket until dealt with the police.

I have personally never been actually penalised, even when pulled over. But they are not ignoring the fact that their cameras have caught you doing 100+kph.
I am not aware of the rumour/fact that drivers licenses are confiscated and/or cancelled or how much monetary fine is charged.

@lemedico; I am glad they are clamping down. I have seen quite a lot of vehicles going to town, probably 120-140kph! No charity on these.

What also needs to be checked in 'driving under the influence' and wandering across lanes.

Just saw this Tweet. People planning to undertake a journey on 24th October should plan accordingly. Since it's near Agra, I guess it would be on YEW.

Yes, this is all over. But I thought it was for the Agra-Lko E'way and not Tamuna E'way.We have adopted the international practice (I think pioneered by the Swedes) of using highways as alternate airstrips. In a way unless you start operating with heavy cargo planes you do not need much work for occasional fighter landings. However, it is still good to provide for reinforced high stress areas (landing points).

One other advantage of these is to provide for operations closer to the war zone.

I am wondering whether any hostilities are envisaged?
