Most of the pics posted are inter-city highways and India seems to be doing a good job at building them.

My concern is - when will India build good roads within the city limits. In USA , not just the highways but even the in-city roads are excellent...broad , well marked , signalled , with tree lined foot paths etc. There is also ample of parking space wherever you go. That adds to the quality of life. It makes driving a pleasure.

As a Mumbai resident I can tell that its going to be very difficult for us to get to that point. There is no concept of urban planning.

But ..who knows...India may just surprise us.

Actually in the U.S not all of the intercity roads are that good. The intercity roads in Europe and Japan are much better. They use more thickness for roads than U.S. U.S does this to provide construction jobs for rebuilding roads since roads are not as strong. Much smoother in other countries. Some cities in U.S though have good roads.

Having traveled the Gaya-Patna route many times with my family, those roads are a vast improvement. But I'm not sure if I would call them expressways, because they don't have broad shoulders on each side, the interchanges seem very tight, and of course the presence of pedestrians. With these things it's really critical to do it *right* the first time, so you don't have to spend billions later on acquiring land on the side for road widening, and building new interchanges, etc.

The BJP government in India built more interstate roads in 5 years than the Congress built in 40, or the British built in 150 years, or the Muslims in 1,000 years. But since the Congress has come back, my relatives back in India tell me that a lot of the expressway work has slowed down, because it's not really a priority to complete a BJP project. Damn shame.

Expressway has ramps to get off and on. They are accessed controlled. They do not have stop lights. They are usually elevated slightly. Highway just is main road. Can have stop lights. Long distance.

The Bihar government used to get money every year to build a proper road between Gaya and Patna from the Japanese government. This was so that Japanese buddhists could fly into Patna and then drive into Gaya (which shouldn't have taken more than an hour or two, but usually took about 4-5).

Lalu Yadav took the money every single year and spent it on God knows what. Back in 2000, they actually built a proper paved road there, and we crossed that segment in less than 2 hours. I hope they've maintained it, and thankfully Lalu Yadav is gone from Bihar politics. There's more money to be stolen in national politics I guess, but as long as he stays away from Bihar that's fine with me.
