Usually on most highways its 80 kmph. But most people drive at minimum 100kmph. We were going at 120 on some of those roads.

Well they are not exactly freeway, but just highways, they are not access controlled, but the surface quality is as good as any WESTERN highway. During my recent trip to India, it was really a fun to travel on those.

Some news on it

Big highway push in works

Rs 4,500 crore = $ 1 billion US.

They were planning to spend some $20 billion or so. Altho like some other developing countires, India's development is not trumpeted.

Trust me, after you get out of the cities, highways like these are a welcome change.

How are the signage on these roads? Are they all in English + regional language? Surely Hindi language signs wouldn't be labeling highways in the South and East, right?

No clue, I don't think the idea of long distance car travel has caught up in the country. The highways are primarily used by the lorry drivers.
