Yeah, but not on interstates. The universal ban on scooters, farm vehicles, pedestrians, bikers, and animal-drawn vehicles has survived every court challenge against them (including Amish lawsuits claiming religious discrimination). Not even construction vehicles can legally be driven on interstates... they have to be trucked to the work site.

Well, I'm sorry if India doesn't fit into your mold exactly...

I am not sure what an Asian Highway Network map is doing here. Nor why we need a Chinese Highway Network map.

The Asian Highway Network has got nothing to do with individual country networks.

The Asian Highway network is a network of 141,000 kilometers of standardized roadways crisscrossing 32 Asian countries with linkages to Europe.

The Intergovernmental Agreement on the Asian Highway Network was adopted on 18 November 2003 by an intergovernmental meeting held in Bangkok, was open for signature in April 2004 in Shanghai and entered into force on 4 July 2005.

For more on the Asian Highway network

http://www.unescap.org/TTDW/index.as...e=AsianHighway

Hopefully this clears any confusion!

Depends on how an expressway is defined and on your friend's interpretation.

Here's an interesting article from Wikipedia..

What is an expressway?

An expressway is a divided highway, usually 4 lanes or wider. Beyond that basic requirement, the specific meaning of expressway depends upon the locality.

In the Indian context, an Expressway is also grade-seperated, besides being 4+ lanes and divided.

Offhand, the only Indian ones I can think of are the aformentioned MPE (Mumbai-Pune, 90km), NE-1 (Ahmedabad-Baroda, 90km), GVK (Jaipur-Kishangarh, 94km), North Karnataka, (Belgaum-Maharashtra, 77km), DND Flyway (Delhi-NOIDA, 5.5km), Gautam Buddha Expwy (NOIDA-Greater Noida, 22km), and Calcutta-Durgapur (65km). That's a total of...473.5km. This is part of a ~5,500km dual-carriageway network (4+lanes w/ divider, but with at-grade intersections. These are more like the UK's A-roads than M-roads).

The following expressways are currently u/c:
  • Hyderabad Outer Ring Road (162km)
  • Delhi Western Bypass (135km)
  • Bangalore-Mysore Expwy (111km, delayed like mad)
  • Hosur Road Expwy, Bangalore (20km?)
  • Hyderabad Airport Expwy (11.5km)
  • Delhi-Gurgaon Expwy (30km)

That's 469.5km u/c.

Finally, the following expressways are planned, but not u/c:
  • Baroda-Mumbai (400km)
  • Delhi Eastern Bypass (100km)
  • Delhi-Chandigarh (250km)
  • Delhi-Agra (200km)
  • Other Expwys: Calcutta-Dhanabad, Delhi-Jaipur, Delhi-Meerut, Bangalore-Chennai (total length for all of them: 800km)
  • Ludhiana Ring Road (60km?)

Total for all the proposed expwys: 1610km.

Once all the u/c and proposed expwys are built (sometime before 2012), there will be 2,553km of true expressways in India, not accounting for any new projects that might be built by then. By the same timeframe, they're hoping to have 15,000km or so of normal dual-carriageway.

NOTE: In India, expressways are access-controlled, while highways are not. Also, sometimes normal highways show one or two grade seperations between at-grade intersections, but this is somewhat rare.

It must be pointed out that while highways with 6 lanes and more will cover about 2,500 km by 2012 (as mentioned by Naga Solidus), the total highway length, including ones with 4 lanes, will cover 14,000 km by 2010. In India, lanes in both directions are included in a highway description.

Just for comparison, I was reading on a thread in this forum that France has a highway network of 12,000 km. Clearly, within the next 5 years, India will have one of the longest highway networks in the world.
