With the construction of a bypass connecting Agra Inner Ring Road and Yamuna Expressway, the city of Agra will get rid of traffic jams. The construction of Agra - Jalesar - Etah road will facilitate the traders of the brass industry.

Gadkari also announced the development of 84 Kosi Parikrama Marg of Braj. This route will be declared as a new National Highway and will be included in Bharatmala Project Phase-II.

He said this route will be made like the 84 Kosi Parikrama Marg of Ayodhya and will be connected to all the major pilgrimage sites in the vicinity. Apart from Mathura, this route will pass through the border areas of Rajasthan, Haryana, he added.

Overall, these projects will facilitate trade and ease of doing business. Glass and bangles industry will get special impetus. There will be economic development along with increase in employment opportunities with the coming of these Highway projects.
