This reminds me of an incident about someone whom I know. Just for the sake of enjoyment, they paid some bucks to drive on expressway ahead of its inaugural in their Q7. But the fun short lived as soon as they encountered several farm animals. Heard there is no proper fencing at a few locations.

Guys,

Planning a drive on the Xpressway this Saturday on bikes. Me along with my office mates are planning a smooth and sane drive on the beautiful tarmac. Though we haven't decided for where we shall return but I'd hope we at-least go beyond the first toll. Keeping all essentials like tyre tube, foot pump, food, water, fully charged mobile. Do suggest if I should keep anything other than these in mind.

I wanted to experience YEW when I was driving down from Delhi to Agra in last February, but unfortunately MMI guided me through the old highway, and it was too late when I realized.

Re: Yamuna Expressway Makes Delhi – Agra Commute Easier

I travelled through Yamuna Expressway last week. It’s unarguably the best road in India I have driven on. Some observations:

> There’s only one fuel pump enroute. It’s very important to ensure that tank is full and spare wheel is intact.

> Similarly, I could spot only two food joints on entire stretch. They’re well-maintained and owned by Jaypee.

> Patrolling cars can be seen 24x7 in distance of a few kilometers across the route and are readily available for assistance.

> There are no street lights. So one has to totally rely on headlamps. Beware of villagers appearing all of sudden out of nowhere to cross the roads.
