But even 6000 deaths is more than India's mining deaths in 10 years.

One would think that if China can build better roads than India - they could also be doing a better job at mining safety.

And perhaps, you'd also like to explain why the Chinese government let its own citizens drink poisoned water for ten days (near Harbin) before telling them the truth...?

A government that did that in India would surely lose the next election. But then, I guess, in your country, miners don't get to vote, and peasants who drink poisoned water don't get to vote either.

Our country isn't perfect. We know that. Stop acting like yours IS!!!

I realize that the % of the population that has cars isn't alot at this point so I don't see the necessity for any more lanes...

But what about the future, will a two-lane highway suffice? Is it cheaper doing it this way and adding more lanes later as opposed to right away making it 3-4 lanes?

i feel that there are 2 ways to look at it...it maybe cheaper to build extra lanes now, but maintenance will b higher...on the other hand, adding lanes later maybe (will be) more expensive...so im sure somebody has done the math and come up with the no. of lanes!

Incredible the number of pedestrians on those highways. About ½ the images on this thread page show pedestrians walking on them.

Norms laid for road contracts, more debate on toll policy

Planning Commission Deputy Chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia today released the model concession agreement (MCA) that would govern all future build-operate-and-transfer (BOT) road contracts awarded by the National Highway Authority of India.

The MCA provides for phased development of roads, where the contract to operate roads ceases when full capacity of highways is achieved.

It specifies further widening should be taken up, depending on traffic projections and recommends that the second phase for six or eight laning is executed after seven-12 years.

The model agreement also provides for the NHAI handing over possession of at least 80 per cent of land and obtaining environmental clearances before financial closure of the project. It also exempts the local population from paying toll for the use of the roads, until free service lanes are constructed. Frequent users may be allowed discounts.

The new concession agreement also says that the financial closure has to be achieved within 180 days. This time frame can be extended by 120 days upon payment of penalty.

Malaysia and Freeways for India!!!!

We now are getting ready to start upgrading from highways to freeways.

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia is prepared to invest $2-3 billion in developing India's road and other infrastructure if New Delhi agrees to its proposal to build about 3,000 km of freeways and highways connecting major cities, Works Minister S Samy Vellu said.

Vellu, a minister for 26 years and the seniormost representative of the Malaysian Indian community in the government, said 70 per cent of the investment could come from Kazana, the government's investing arm that would then open an office in India, while the remaining could come from the Indian government and from toll collection.

"It will be an invest, build, operate and transfer project worth about 8-10 billion ringgits ($2-3 billion), the like of which no country has proposed before," Vellu, said, in an interview shortly before he made a presentation to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Vellu said the clearance of such a network of freeways - between Delhi and Kolkata, one connecting Chenna-Kochi-Bangalore and between Mumbai and Bhopal - would open up the floodgates of investment and development and accelerate economic growth in the areas around it.

He said he had first made the proposal to late Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao when he came here in the early 1990s, but "India was not then ready for such freeways".
