Great highways, the infrastructure seems to be developing very quickly.
I have a question about a tiny detail I noticed in the many pics in this thread.
It pertains to the marking of the roads. It seems that some roads use a yellow
line to separate opposing traffic (like here in North America), some roads use
a yellow line to indicate the outer edges of the road (like in Israel), while some
roads just use white lines throughout.
Does each province/locale in India have different driving regulations/standards,
or are different categories of roads marked differently? Or is it possible that
there aren't strict standards?

I'm just curious.

The Delhi-Noida expressway is amazing. With the completion of Delhi-Gurgaon expressway in 1 year, India's capital will have really good highway infrastructure connecting to its satellite cities/suburbs. It will be in the same league as the Mumbai-Pune expressway.

No offence, these look on the surface but the more you start to investigate the worse they look. Few of them seem to have a proper shoulder anywhere, what happens if your car breaks down or something? Also most of them lack a proper certain median, they all those little curb things which would do nothing but catapult vehicles into the oncoming lanes in the event of a crash.

Yeah... still a long way to go!!!

If one browses this thread right from the start, the progress is apparant. The initial pictures posted last year were simple, normal 4 lane roads with no traffic... some "critics" wondered if india could not afford a vehicle.
Then there came about 6 lane roads ...with more vehicles.
The latest pics from magestom and indiansunite show access controlled expressways.

Nice going India!

And all of these expressways use the concept of service lanes which you can easily get on every half a kilometer...

Due to price concerns, Indian highways are generally built without shoulders (the highway authority feels it's more important to provide divided highways first, considering they're all being upgraded from dirt tracks etc).

Some expressways in India (in fact quite a few) feature them, but only on the exit side. Again, this may be due to cost concerns (FTR, the USA, Australia, and Canada are the only countries I've seen with inner shoulders as well as outer ones, for example, in Europe they don't use inner shoulders too often) or it could be that they use the European model in India as opposed to the American one.

I think the standards are common.

Yellow lines are continous and not broken lines. Vehicles shall not cut those yellow lines

White lines, as in lane markings, are broken and you can cut the lanes when going to overtake or slowing down.

Nice, but a bit dangerous because there is no emergency line on the sides.

haha, i like this map, and will show it to my friends.
i suggest you guys erase the "only" highway in China in that map, and paint desert into the whole China, which will show China as much poor as you need
have a look at how poor and how short the highways are in China
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=232957

according to the picture, the quality of some india's highway is not good.
and ,seems everybody can walk across these highways with no limit.
it's low-level, low-budget, low-safe, low-admin, and low-quality
