Looks good! With India's economy growing 6 to 7% (or more), road projects and other road network improvements would be very feasible as well as possible!

Signposting is now largely a competence of the individual states. That in itself isn't really bad, the problem is that the standard used by the individual states (at least those states that I visited) is not anywhere near what one could call "international standards". Road numbers are not signposted in a manner that allows the driver to follow them, focal points that are on one sign will often not appear on subsequent signs, important junctions in town are often not signposted, on the expressways advance directional signage is often missing, etc. Some states use Hindi only as the language for their signposting, which is not only tricky for foreigners but also for Indians from regions more to the South.

All that requires a thorough rethinking of signposting. And I would expect that the national highway agencies are better placed to develop this than individual state highway agencies are.

By the way, I only posted photos of expressways in India. If you are interested in signs from non-expressways (which include even more horrific signage), have a look at my Panoramio page.

Cool album. That is what I mean by saying they don't have national standards.

In India nothing happens overnight. Here everything happens at a crawl. Give another 20 years to arrive at a proper standard.

But implementing a national standard on road signs os not that hard. Even poor countries like Kyrgyzstan and Cameroun have a nationwide standard. But we'll wait. We're patient
