Still it was India's first expressway, and I wouldn't say its the best in India, altho its certainly not crappy.

The monsoons are heavy when they fall, but the heat evaporates the water rather quickly, giving those blotchy puddles on the highway

Generally speaking, the Indian national highways equal to countryside road level (non-highway) in the US or China, much inferior to the countryside roads in Germany or France. I hardly saw any so-called highways in India when I traveled there. Another intersting thing is their autos are so bad.......

Ther is no reason to brag and to ridicule others, even if you are better. The roads are maybe better in China, but the driving skills (is there any?) are one of the worst in the world. Everytime I take a bus or a taxi, I am more than reliefed to get off again.

When did you go to India? And more importantly, where did you go in India?

If you went to Pahargnj in Delhi, or went to Bihar and UP and then say its the whole of India, then this thread cannot be much of a help to you.

AND KEEP CHINA OUT OF THIS.

Nobody talks of US or German highways in the Chinese thread. Why do you want to talk about China in this. I think there is another thread for your tom tomming.

most of these highways are new 1-4 yrs old...so u probably didnt see these when u went to india...infact the construction in some parts is still going on..including a lot of new expressways...im sure the next time u visit india and take a ride on these highways, it'l be a better experience.

P.S the use of cars for long distance is still minimal in india compared to US or european countries, most indian people prefer the railways/buses and more recently the planes with the introduction of about a dozen new airlines in India.

What are you talking about???? The highways shown here are much better than american interstates, they are crap!! It's really a shame for the most powerful country in the world to have overall the crappiest highway system of any developed country. (I am american, but I think that the biggest problem of the US is it's old fashioned transport network, and I think that in this topic we have a lot to learn from Western European countries)
