Lets see what you might say in 5-10 years. Some people might say they will say the same, but there is no way to know until the time has come. Make up some excuse some of you might.

30 km/h speed limit for a highway. This is unprecedented. Dont tell me they want to facilitate the movement of cows on a highway that generally prohibits any type of croosing

That is not the speed limit. That is for the people walking and riding on the middle pathway.

After viewing India's and China's highway pictures, one can easily tell the big infrastructure gap between the two developing countries.

People need to stop critising India's highways. They are really great. Ofcourse, they may have flaws but they will work them out in the near future. You people do know that these highways are only less than 5 years right? The highways in America are like 30+ years old, so all I'm asking is not to diss the Indian highways by comparing them to other highways systems around the world. Just wait till a couple of years. At this moment, just give India credit that they built these highways of such quality. Ten years ago, there were no highways like this. There was absolute crap. But looking at these highways show that India is making progress.

BTW there will be cars on the highways. If not now, then in the near future. I guarantee it.

Not bad but Indian freeway still lack quality, they could of done better but seems like they're going towards saving costs.
