Delhi-Agra with personal car & driver via highway

I read somewhere there is a highway connecting delhi and agra and this shortens the travelling time. How long is the journey using this highway?

Is it better travelling in the morning or afternoon in this highway to avoid traffic jam?

Thanks

Newly build Yamuna Expressway between Delhi and Agra reduced the distance and duration as well...driving would take 3 hours approx.......better to drive in the morning.

Hi-

To reach Agra through the express highway takes about three and half hours. Now days (winter) in the morning is fog on that highway so better you start from Delhi 8/ 8:30 AM.

Yes, the route which you are talking about is known as Yamuna Expressway which connects Delhi & Agra, it will take around 3-4 hours to reach Agra from Delhi and vice versa. You can travel whenever you want and according to your comfort because as of know there is no jamm situation on that expressway although if you are coming from Delhi then you should start the journey early in the morning as you will find more traffic in Delhi during morning and evening.

Hi-

Yes there is traffic on weak end but its not true about parking. All the hotels, restaurant, and monuments have proper parking space.
