Default Agra Jaipur route questions

Folks

I'll be making a Lucknow - Agra - Jaipur - Delhi - Lucknow in few days with my family. Last time I went Jaipur about 3 years back the 4 laning work was in progress. My queries:

1. Is Agra Jaipur fully 4 laned now ? Esp Agra to Bharatpur stretch.
2. I'm planning a stopover point along this route. Any suggestions on good place to have a quick 30 mins refresh break.
3. How long would it normally take from Agra to Jaipur. The Agra - Lucknow I have routinely done in about 4 - 4.5 hrs while doing Lucknow - Delhi trips.

Thanks

Hi entropy,

Agra - Jaipur is now excellent 4lane highway. We did this stretch till Udaipur, Mount Abu just last month. After leaving Agra city, you'll have to be on old 2 lane road towards Kiraoli, Medhawar villages for few kms. We were very apprehensive while on this road and were wondering how come people told it has widened now, But, just about this time, before Fatehpur Sikri, we were surprised to meet a GQ quality 4 lane highway (NH 11) all the way till Jaipur!

Once you cross the Agra city mess, you'll breeze thru to Jaipur in 3.5 - 4 hrs. including a 15 mints break.

If you want to stop for a refreshment break, plz wait till you meet that 4 lane NH 11 after Agra city. There are several good looking midway type restaurants all along. Though we didn't actually check any, but they appear nice.

happy driving!

When I drive from Lucknow to Jaipur, via Kanpur - Agra, can I bypass Agra city now, and enter the NH 11 straightaway?

I am planning to do this route sometime in October.

In Kanpur, I know I have no choice, but to traverse from Ganga bridge to Rama Devi before getting on to the flyover! I hope I get the flyover at Rama Devi junction itself, in order to move towards Agra.

I think even at Agra there is no choice. You arrive at Rambagh/Waterworks and drive on NH2 till Bhagwan theater. Dont goto the flyover, take left towards Raja Mandi side.
After crossing the flyover at Hari Parwath/Rajamandi you would be on the Agra-Jaipur to Bharatpur.

You can also come via St Johns. But dont know about traffic in there.

The other option is to come via Agra fort which I think is quite traffic prone.
(Not that route via Bhagwan theater is any less!) But I think water works to Bhagwan theater can still be managed.

Thanks. Is the diversion from NH2 to Jaipur indicated well on the highway signboards, at Rambagh, etc? And is that Agra traffic is as lethal as Varanasi's? I hope not!

I don't think it's mentioned. Ask any one for bhagwan theatre. That's a very well known landmark. You need to get out of NH2 at that point.

Alternatively, how viable is this proposition? I continue on NH 2 in Agra beyond Transport colony, Bajrang Nagar area and Akbar Tomb diversion and then take take the four-lane (as seen in google map) left turn to connect to Bichipur Railway station and then proceed to NH 11 in order to join the Agra Jaipur highway.

Does it mean a hassle-free drive, with comparatively less traffic?

And then how do I enter Jaipur, I mean, Central Jaipur or Bani Park?

I think crossing Agra via NH2 itself is a big hassle. Check with regulars who travel to Kanpur and beyond.

It would be easier to get out of NH2 and latch on to the road through the city. There is mostly heavy truck traffic on the NH2 within Agra.

I thought of crossing Agra around 1 pm. Yea, there is a driver in apartment who drives to Jaipur from Lucknow occasionally.
