Everything you need to know about the Agra-Gwalior Expressway!
The unveiling of the Agra Gwalior Road has given inhabitants in the Gwalior-Chambal region a sense of relief, as the six-lane expressway would drastically shorten travel time from Gwalior to Agra. The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) will implement it under the Bharatmala Pariyoana for Rs 2,500 crores.
The Agra Gwalior Expressway will be built by the Central Government to relieve congestion on the existing connecting route of Gwalior-Morena-Dholpur-Agra. The residents of Gwalior, Jhansi, Bhind, Shivpuri, Morena, and Datia would profit from this future roadway. Continue reading to learn more about the route and the project’s current status:
