The Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA), the managing entity, declared that the expressway’s 165 km of tolls would increase at its 74th board meeting.

The last time the Yamuna Expressway’s tolls were raised was in 2021. This time, the highway is making headlines for the higher toll prices, which are currently being hiked from 10 paise to Rs 1.55 per kilometre, depending on the vehicle class, however the expressway frequently stays in the news owing to the speeding vehicles due to its superb construction.

Why raise the toll fee?

The expressway was renovated, according to YEIDA, at a cost of Rs 130 crore to the agency, following a safety examination by a team from IIT Delhi. According to recommendations from the IIT Delhi road safety audit, the expressway concessionaire spent Rs 130.54 crore on construction, according to the YEIDA.

Significance of the Yamuna Expressway

The Yamuna Expressway is a restricted entry expressway that connects the walled capital city of the nation, Delhi, to Agra. If nothing else, it has reduced the overall travel time between the two cities to a few hours. The Expressway avoids the ancient Delhi-Mathura-Agra route by passing through Noida, Greater Noida, and the 165 km distance between the two cities can be travelled in just 2 hours.
