Ramps at Jewar and Bajna to decongest Yamuna e-way


The Yamuna Expressway industrial development authority (YEIDA) on Thursday decided to construct ramps near two congested stretches on the highway, the decision to construct the ramps was taken by the authority at its board meeting.

According to a published media report the move is aimed at streamlining traffic on the six-lane 165-km-long expressway.

The authority will construct a ramp for exit and entry at Jewar, located 36 km from the zero point of the Yamuna e-way that connects Greater Noida with Agra. Another ramp will be built at Mathura’s Bajna, located around 100 km from Greater Noida.

“The two ramps will address the problem of congestion that motorists face at these two points on the Yamuna e-way. Using the ramp proposed at Jewar, commuters will exit and enter the expressway easily. Similarly, motorists coming from Agra and going towards Delhi will be able to use the proposed ramp at Bajna,” said Arun Vir Singh, CEO, YEIDA was quoted in media.

Last month, farmers from many villages, including Jewar, blocked traffic on the expressway, demanding construction of the ramp. The ended the protest only after the YEIDA promised to construct the ramp.


“According to the procedure, we will hire a private agency and construct two ramps very soon. This will benefit the motorists a lot,” singh said.
