Is it common in India that expressways have no crash barriers in median?

Expressways and most national highways in India have some grade separation and / or crash barriers at medians, such as examples shown below.

BMIC Expressway is U/C but it already has grade-separation at medians along most sections. The NICE link road has progressed faster than the actual expressway because it acts like a freeway approach-road.


Yamuna Expressway

Hi n20

Yes I am from Belgaum and I am associated with this beautiful NH4 since birth.I have travelled extensively in Karnataka, Maharashtra and Goa,a countless times on NH4 KA-MH sectors.I do find it with heavy vehicle volume all the time since my childhood.Some of the densest sectors I feel could be Kolhapur-Pune/ Pune-Mumbai / Belgaum-Hubli / Chitradurga-Bangalore / Bangalore-Chennai but now much of the Bangalore-Chennai traffic is diverted via Hosur,Krishnagiri till Vellore.

As per hearsay,NH4 is the busiest highway in India-the 1350 km long NH4 connects 4 Metros viz.Chennai,Bangalore,Pune,Mumbai and many other district HQs /tier 2 cities enroute.It also provides arterial connections to Goa,Konkan,Shirdi etc.. This highway is the only one of its kind to link 4 Metros in one stretch of just 1350kms. I do not think there is any other NH in India that can claim this status.Please correct me if I am wrong.
A couple of times on internet too, at some places I have found it being said that NH4 is the busiest NH in India,although I too did not fetch a statistical data of all National highways w.r.t vehicular density.

If someone has authentic data regarding busiest NHs of present times,they can please share.

Hyderabad ORR is really a very nice road by India's standards, and quite likely by the standards of many developing countries, but I think our roads still have some way to go to match the quality and complexity of major expressway-like roads in developed Western and advanced Asian countries.

However, I agree with you, rsrikanth05, that road quality and quantity have undoubtedly improved considerably in the past decade in India. I love my country and hope this continues but at a faster pace, as land acquisition issues, cost escalations and various clearances are impeding pace of highway / expressway development.

Are there many concrete expressways in India, or is it mostly asphalt?

Expressways such as Yamuna Expressway are built using rigid PCC, the same as the US Interstate highways.

However, regular highways in India are usually built of bituminous concrete, and sometimes of asphalt.
