Recently went on a road trip from Delhi to Lucknow on NH2for a cousins wedding.
We left on 8th Feb 09 and returned on 11th Feb 09. The road to Agra as most Delhities now are one of the best but mark my words the conditions from Agra to Kanpur are much far superior and pleasure to drive.
We left home in delhi at 6.30 am and with 2 halts touched lucknow at 3.30pm…the distance on this route which clocked in tripmeter was 575 km
The road from Delhi to kanpur is “makhaan” with a total toll of Rs Approx 170 rs
Only the major hurdles is the kanpur bypass that took us 1 hr to pass due to heavy congestion in lieu of construction of the new flyover. Hence kanpur city bypass was the worst exp. Kanpur to lucknow is another good patch of highway
we stopped before Agra to freshn up as there are not so many good stops from Agra to Kanpur as the roads built are new and not known to many
Did the same at kanpur while returning and non stop till mathura Mac D.
At the end i would really go for another trip on NH2 !
