    Yes, the national and state highway authorities are doing a good job. It’s time to thank them. Good use of taxes then.

    OMG philip! i have the exact same pic of the Vivekananda statue on the Vzg-Vjd highway…infact i took loads of pics myself coupla months ago during my trip to India. i also managed to go to kona seema and took some beautiful shots πŸ™‚

    isn’t it typical of the western media to show only the slums..poor roads…cows on highways and garbage on the streets when it comes to India..

    @Peter, yup the first pic is the Bombay-Pune expressway. Quite scenic. I had travelled on that road once.

    @Jay & Old Sailor. Its a part of the golden quadrilateral road project. Hope we can see more of these great roads in future.

    @Idlidosa, do share some of the pics you have taken. Its typical of the western media to show the ugly side of India always. Even if they are speaking of a software company, they dont forget to show a cow on the road. hahaha

    ho God!i cannot believe these are indian roads….i have never heard good news abt indian roads…so its time to proudly present our roads to the world media

  8. Liju Philip says:

    @Rekha, the golden quadrilateral has some great roads. Another 3-4 years and we should have a good road infrastructure in place.

    I think skyscrapercity forums do a great job of showing the latest infrastructure of India.

    That apart, if there’s one sector that’s growing faster than any other in India, it is infrastructure. Expect some great construction activity in the near future.

    Good One man πŸ™‚ really loved it.. for most of them out there, India is a bigggg village

    @Akhil, skyscrapercity is one of my favourite website. I appreciate the work of the contributors in that forum.

    Current govt estimates are that almost $100 billion worth of infrastructure projects are going on in the country. Another 3-4 yrs down the line, we can start to see the positive results of all these constructions.

    @Dinsan, so very true.

  12. Yes we do have some good roads … Mumbai Pune express Highway is a fav of mine.
