Nice pic. Glad to see people driving in lanes (Except those buses). When are they getting trained. Most car drivers are educated lot(owners). They understand the concept of lane driving easily. Those bus/truck drivers need training and the govt. has to enforce that at the time of license renewal.

IU, I heard there's no speed limit for cars in UP (source), is that true? And if so, is the UP section of NH2 derestricted?

What difference does it make? The speed limit compliance is so low, does not matter. Most people just ignore the signage anyway.

it makes a difference from legal and enforcement perspectives, as well as the effects of any given rule on the people's overall respect for the law (e.g. here in the USA, severely undersigned interstatess, posted at 65 when 70-75 is the 85th percentile speed and 70-75 when the 85th percentile speed is more like 90-95mph have led to the widespread use of radar detectors and other enforcement countermeasures by frustrated motorists longing for German-style sensible driving regulations). I started a seperate chaibar thread for this quite a while ago.

MPE is completely fenced

The entire stretch of the MPE is fenced off. I haven't seen cattle/livestock entering the highway yet. Yes I have seen people jumping across the fence, but no livestock.

No clue about the existence of a speed limit in UP or any other state. Plus people wouldn't care if one existed.

As part of the Mumbai Urban Infrastructure Project (MUIP), this highway is being converted into a freeway, with a 6-lane access-controlled highway in the middle and 3 lanes on each side for local traffic.

That will be a cool project. Hopefully no usual issues of protests and lethargy.

What's with the keep right sign, it looks like it might promote slow-moving traffic to drive next to the median and encourage undertaking. Does it mean "keep right for Bandra Terminus"? If so, then it shouldn't be a problem, but it can still be misinterpreted.

The sign is before a signalled intersection, with the right turn leading to Bandra Terminus station. Vehicles that are planning to turn right are being asked by this sign to stay on the right lanes. It's quite obvious that the 'keep right' is for vehicles proceeding towards Bandra Terminus/Kherwadi.
