Nagar, Harcharan Singh
|Abstract:||The Yamuna Expressway Project is conceived with the idea to not only reduce the travel time between New Delhi and Agra but also to open up avenue for industrial and urban development of the region and provide the base for convergence to tourism and other allied industries. The Government of Uttar Pradesh has been working proactively to improve the connectivity of the National Capital Region (NCR) to improve tourist attraction of Taj Mahal at Agra through the new 6 lanes (extendable to 8 lanes) Access Controlled Expressway with brand name of Yamuna Expressway. The 23.4 km long section of the Yamuna Expressway joins the Noida and Greater Noida. The study stretch starts from Amity University at Noida and ends at Pari Chowk in Greater Noida. The road is 6 lanes divided by approximately 3 m wide median and has 1.5 m paved shoulders. On Yamuna Expressway section joining Noida and Greater Noida, the rate of accidents is much higher than the national average. Degree of fatality is also very high. A study was carried out to identify the reasons for higher accident rate and to explore remedial measures to reduce the accidents.|
