ग्रेटर नोएडा : ग्रेटर नोएडा से आगरा तक का सफर 90 मिनट में तय करने के लिए अभी तीन माह और इंतजार करना होगा। यमुना एक्सप्रेस-वे अब आगरा तक के लिए मार्च 2012 तक ही चालू हो पाएगा। इससे पहले एक्सप्रेस-वे को चालू करने का लक्ष्य अगले माह दिसंबर तक रखा गया था। अब तक कई जगहों पर अंडरपास का निर्माण कार्य पूरा नहीं हो पाया है।
ज्ञात हो कि ग्रेटर नोएडा से आगरा तक निर्माणाधीन 165 किलोमीटर लंबे यमुना एक्सप्रेस-वे का निर्माण कार्य पूरा करने का लक्ष्य पहले 2013 रखा गया था। जून, 2011 में प्रदेश सरकार ने कंस्ट्रक्शन कंपनी को दिसंबर 2011 तक निर्माण कार्य पूरा कर एक्सप्रेस-वे का चालू करने का निर्देश दिया था। कंस्ट्रक्शन कंपनी ने लक्ष्य को ध्यान में रखते हुए एक्सप्रेस-वे का निर्माण कार्य तेज कर दिया था। हालांकि, बारिश के मौसम में निर्माण कार्य में रुकावट आई।

इससे ग्रेटर नोएडा से आगरा के बीच कई जगह पर अंडरपास का निर्माण कार्य समय से पूरा नहीं हो पाया। कंस्ट्रक्शन कंपनी के पास मात्र दो माह का समय शेष है। 90 फीसदी ही निर्माण कार्य पूरा हो पाया है। ऐसे में कंस्ट्रक्शन कंपनी ने मार्च, 2012 तक एक्सप्रेस-वे को चालू करने का लक्ष्य रखा है। यमुना एक्सप्रेस-वे प्राधिकरण के मुख्य कार्यपालक अधिकारी पंधारी सिंह यादव का कहना है कि ग्रेटर नोएडा से आगरा तक एक्सप्रेस-वे का निर्माण करीब पूरा हो चुका है। एक्सप्रेस वे पर कई जगह अंडरपास का निर्माण कार्य प्रगति पर है। इसे पूरा होने में तीन से चार माह लग सकता है। इसलिए मार्च तक ही एक्सप्रेस-वे चालू हो पाएगा।
बता दें कि ग्रेटर नोएडा से आगरा तक 2001 में यमुना एक्सप्रेस-वे (पहले नाम ताज एक्सप्रेस-वे था) का निर्माण कार्य शुरू हुआ था।

प्रदेश में सत्ता परिवर्तन होने के साथ एक्सप्रेस-वे का निर्माण कार्य भी बंद हो गया था। 2007 में प्रदेश में जब बसपा की सरकार बनी तो फिर एक्सप्रेस-वे का निर्माण कार्य शुरू हुआ। एक्सप्रेस-वे का निर्माण कार्य शुरू होते ही जमीन अधिग्रहण को लेकर किसानों ने आंदोलन शुरू कर दिया था। इससे निर्माण कार्य बाधित हुआ। किसानों का आंदोलन थमने के बाद एक्सप्रेस-वे के निर्माण में तेजी आई। एक्सप्रेस-वे सौ मीटर चौड़ा व छह लेन का है। भविष्य में इसे आठ लेन करना प्रस्तावित है।

  • From Dec, zoom to Agra at 100kmph


    NOIDA: Commuters on the much awaited 165km Yamuna Expressway between Greater Noida and Agra will be able to zoom at 100 kmph when it is thrown open to the public by the end of December. The speed limit of 100kmph for light motor vehicles and 60 kmph for heavy vehicles has been fixed after due consultation with the Uttar Pradesh government, Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority and Jaypee Infratech officials in accordance with the norms set by the union ministry for roads & highways.

    To ensure safety of the road users, the expressway will have certain restrictions and conditions for use by motor vehicles. According to sources, a few categories of and slow moving vehicles like pushcarts and bullock carts are likely to be barred from using the expressway. Overtaking and parking on the e-way will also be strictly prohibited. Vehicles will be allowed to park in case of a breakdown, but only on a marked parking site along the shoulder of the expressway.

    "The speed limit and restrictions will come into force once the Yamuna Expressway opens to the public," said a Jaypee Infratech spokesperson. He added that drivers will have to follow the signboards installed on the expressway with regard to the speed limits, curves, gaps and other safety aspects.

    The Jaypee official said that 99 per cent of the work is complete and construction of two toll plazas and cloverleaves was under progress. "Currently, toll plazas are being set up at the two interchanges that are under construction. Once the work is complete, trial runs will be conducted along the expressway to take care of any shortcomings," added the official. As it is a toll road, the charges to be levied from motorists will be announced shortly.

    To be opened two years ahead of schedule, it has been projected that the Rs 11,000 crore access-controlled and elevated Yamuna Expressway corridor would daily benefit an estimated 1.2 lakh commuters heading towards Agra and beyond. The six-lane toll road between Greater Noida and Agra will provide commuters seamless connectivity along a six-lane main carriageway and a single-lane shoulder road, besides the option for extending the expressway by another lane in the future. The expressway is completely concretized and has been designed for speeds up to 120kmph. Commuters using the expressway would be able to cover the distance between the two cities in a mere 90 minutes, compared to the present 2.5-3 hours.

    The expressway will have six interchanges along its path located at 10km, 36km, 48km, 110km, 153km and finally the last one exiting at Agra at 165km. Ramps will be provided for exiting at 7km, 11km and 15km, respectively along the expressway. To provide connectivity to the areas along the expressway, 70 underpasses for vehicles, 76 underpasses for pedestrians and cart track crossing and 41 bridges will also be available for use.

    "CCTV cameras will be fixed at an interval of every 5km along the expressway for safety. Moreover, radars to monitor speeding will be put to use and there will be one highway patrol for every 25km, besides exclusive fire brigades," said an official. He added that emergency services like towing, ambulances, petrol sheds, rest-houses and food court services will be available along the expressway at regular intervals.

  • Time will tell...

    For one-off and one-time tourists it would not matter, but the bulk of money from tolls is made by goods vehicles and they may not be as open to shell out a premium

    I am sure Jaypee has considered all these figures and facts before deciding Toll tax. Though exact Toll tax is still not decided. as far as tourist are concerned ,Agra gets the maximum tourist in the country annually. And this expressway facilities guys going beyond Agra too. Yeah Let's see :D and this Expressway is very much well connected with NH-1 as compare to NH-2 connected to NH-1.
