Yamuna Expressway, formerly known as Taj Expressway, is a 6-lane (extendable to 8 lanes), 165 km long, controlled-access expressway, connecting Greater Noida with Agra in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. It is India's longest six-laned controlled-access expressway stretch. The total project cost was 12,839 crore (US$2.32 billion). The Yamuna Expressway was formally inaugurated on 9 August 2012 by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, about two years ahead of its original target completion date.

The Taj Expresssway project was announced in 2001 by Mayawati, then UP Chief Minister. It was conceived with the idea of reducing the travel time between Delhi and Agra. But the project could not start because of a change of government in the state in 2003. The project was reactivated in 2007 when Mayawati regained power and was renamed the Yamuna Expressway.

Yamuna Expressway project was implemented by Jaypee Group. In May 2012, Jaypee Group informed state government officials that construction of the expressway had been completed. The Yamuna Expressway was formally inaugurated on 9 August 2012 by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, via videoconference from Lucknow,about two years ahead of its original target completion date.
