The road project passes through the Uttar Pradesh cities of Agra, Firozabad, Mainpuri, and Etawah. The course covers significant urban areas in Agra, Etmadpur, Firozabad, Shikohabad, Jaswantnagar, and Etawah.
With the Taj Mahal, Fatehpur Sikri, and Red Post as three world-famous landmarks, Agra is a prominent location on the map of the travel industry. The fourth world-famous attraction is the bird sanctuary at Bharatpur National Park. Itmad-ud Daula's final resting place and Akbar's Tomb in Sikandra have both been suggested as potential world legacy sites.
