Pune-Bangalore

Pune - Bangalore highway
This is the part between Kolhapur, Maharashtra and belgaum, Karnataka.
The Pune-Bangalore national highway is cemented like the expressway unlike other new highways around India which are of tar and they have still kept the old highway on the side at some parts.

Durgapur Expressway pics

I went from Kolkata to Burdwan by road last Tuesday. I will post the pics here and write a trip report in the regular highways thread.

Please excuse the bad photographic quality as I have taken them from the back seat of a toyota qualis going at 110kmph !

at an intersection near dankuni



dankuni intersection



toll plaza near dankuni - not yet active



trucks usually stick to the left lane



on this stretch it has service rd on either side



lanes merge from service rd into the highway -



soft shoulder on median



a typical diamond interchange (flyover)



curves are smooth but notice the goats grazing in spite of the guard rails



interchange near palsit



running parallel to the howrah-delhi railway line



highway signboards are of good quality, but not all signs are this big !



cars such as this indica are not a common sight



stop line for right turn towards bardhaman - no interchange here !

Looking at these pics, I was wondering if :

1. are there cats-eye kind of reflectors embedded in the tarmac (lane separators, intersections etc) ? I don't see any in these pics...
2. for signages, have they used reflecting paint?

These become very important for night driving.
