This is the ascent to a plateau, tunnels don't really work then. It has to climb some 500 meters within a few kilometers.

for sure, one tunnel wouldn't solve whole problem but at least looking at this picture there is a room for making big shortcut with tunnel.

You can see the heat and humidity in those photos!

A couple of questions:

* Are there laws preventing visual pollution (signs, billboards, etc) along the highway corridors?

* Looks like there's some foot traffic along the shoulders. Is that legal? Do the authorities look the other way?

It has several long tunnels reaching upto 1 km in length. Here in this pic gradient seems to be high for a tunnel.

There are barely many vehicles(by population) in India but it has great highways.

Where do you see people on foot? I can barely spot cars in that pic...

correct me if I am wrong. I found this section of Mumbai - Puna Expressway. Indeed looks like there is a tunnel.
