Question Route query: Faridabad to Kanpur

Hi all,

We are travelling in a bus from Faridabad (sector 3, very close to end of the town on Mathura road) to Kanpur. No one travelling in this bus ever ventured into the UP state. I have been assigned the task to get details about the roads.

We plan to start early in the morning (around 6-6:30) and reach by evening. If possible, squeeze a ceremony to be completed that night but that is not mandatory.

Google maps suggests the following options:

1. Palwal -> Yamuna express way -> agra -> firozabad -> Etawah -> Kanpur (NH2)

2. Palwal -> Mathura -> Agra-> firozabad -> Etawah -> Kanpur (NH2)

3. Palwal -> Aligarh -> Etah -> Kannauj -> Kanpur (NH91?)

Can someone suggest the best route in terms of road conditions? Is there a better alternative route than these?

What are the best places to stop by for breakfast, lunch and evening tea/snacks (if needed)?

Sri Harsha.

Default re: Route query: Faridabad to Kanpur

Get on to Expressway ASAP and not use the old route. On the old route you pay (for car) toll of Rs180 to get pleasure of road works, traffic that is a mess and more importantly facing traffic jams in Agra from Sikandara to the exit on eastern side. Expressway end on eastern side and toll is R320.

From Sector 3 it does make sense to go to Palwal and cross over Yamuna to join expressway from there but I have not traveled on that for a long time. Used to be bad. Going back towards Delhi and starting expressway from Noida would add an hour maybe?

Post Agra route is good.

I'd avoid suggestion #3

Should not take more than 8 hours with stops.

There are two food courts / facilities on expressway. Past Firozabad there is a very popular restaurant on the right side next to IOC Petrol pump but I forget the name.

Thanks for your input. The trip went fine. We had trouble with roads near etawah from firozabad... lot of fly overs being constructed.
