Mumbai - Pune Expressway

Last week in a written reply to state legislative assembly members, state health minister Dr Deepak Sawant said that a total of 4,634 accidents had taken place on the expressway between 2010 and 2016 in which 1,323 people had lost their lives.
1,323 fatalities in six years on a 95 kilometer stretch of expressway. This may be the deadliest road in the world.

It is the longest operational (although partially) expressway in India. The longest under construction expressway is Mumbai-Nagpur Super expressway (length 704 km).

It wasn't easy to find but I found a clear stretch of land near Dhule. Or was that another project?

But it sounds massive!

Can someone explain this to me?
Brand new 4 laned GQ goes from Dehli via Agra to Kanpur. Lucknow is only 80 km from there.
A short expressway project to join with it.
So why have they built a complete new rd on the same route ?
They run parallel from Dehli to Kanpur , nyet ?
Another Indian babu ( yadev?) vanity project on tax payers cash ?.
Or am I missing something here ?
Cheers

GQ is a highway and the other one in an expressway. Same as US highways vs Interstates. There are more such examples in India.

NH8 Bharuch, Gujarat

A new extradosed bridge was inaugurated today (March 7) in Bharuch, Gujarat.

The extradosed bridge is a relatively new development, until recently only a handful of such bridges existed in the world, but over the past 5-10 years more bridges like these have been built across the world.
