The 165-km-long Yamuna Expressway, built as a symbol of modern development connecting the Noida industrial hub with Agra — the city of Taj, is now being described as the deadliest road in the country by the families of those who fell victim to speeding on the smooth macadam.
An ambitious project of the Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati, the eight-lane Expressway was formally opened on August 9, 2012, by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.
Since its inauguration, there have been 2,194 accidents recorded on the expressway in around 1,000 days.
In reply to an RTI query, the Yamuna Expressway Authority has revealed that there were 319 deaths till July 15 in road accidents. Two major accidents have been reported later.
