The Agra Etawah Toll Road Project serves as a prime exemplar of the critical role national highways play in facilitating seamless interstate movement of passengers and freight. These expansive road networks span the length and breadth of the nation, connecting federal and state government capitals, vital ports, railway junctions, border passages, and international thoroughfares.
Modern Road Makers' mission revolves around providing exceptional roadway infrastructure that meets stringent quality standards. These amenities encompass supplementary lanes, enhanced road surfaces, dedicated lanes, intersection-grade separations, protective barriers, and more. The highways conceived as part of the Agra Etawah Toll Road Project are meticulously designed to accommodate through traffic and ensure the swift passage of vehicles. The ownership of these highways can be divided between the Central Government and respective State Governments, depending on their classification as either National Highways or State Roads.
The collaboration between the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and AE Tollway Private Limited (AETPL), an SPV (special purpose vehicle) under IRB Infrastructure Developers Ltd., culminated in a concession agreement on September 1st, 2015. This agreement entails the construction, operation, and maintenance of the Agra Etawah Bypass NH 2 Project. For a duration of 24 years, post the specified timeline, the project remains under concession. During this period, the concessionaire has the authorization to levy the prescribed user fee on drivers.
The segment between Agra and Etawah, spanning 124.52 km along NH 2, forms an integral part of the Agra Etawah Bypass NH 2 Project. Through a build-operate-transfer (BOT) or design-build-finance-operate-transfer (DBFOT) framework, this stretch will be expanded from four to six lanes.
