Default Who Said Indian Roads Arn't Good

Enjoy some of the greatest expressways in India…
This is the Ahmedabad - Baroda expressway...

This is the NH4 - Bangalore Pune highway.
Section between Kolhapur and Belgaum...

Hebbal interchange at Bangalore.

And here is how the DNE looks from space. These are from Google Earth...

The Mumbai Pune expressway
1.This is a snap of the MPE from one of the over bridges. MPE runs from the outskirts of Pune to Panvel which is about 50 kms from Mumbai. It is a six lanes road all throughout, including the ghat section.

2. Another view. The road has a fence running along the lenght on both sides to prevent stray animals venturing on the expressway.

3. This is an approach to one of the tunnels on the expressway. One of the tunnels on this route is almost 1.2 Kms long.

4. Again, an approach to a tunel. Check the sign boards on the road. The MPE has a dedicated mobile emergency line displayed all over the road. It also has emergency phone booths along the road to call for assistance.

5. This is a section between Lonavala and Khandala. Since the road passes thru these towns, they have built an elevated section that pases over these towns. There are exits for both towns.

6. One of the tunnels. All tunnels are well illuminated and the longer tunnels have large exhaust fans

7. This is a breathtaking view of the MPE against the backdrop of the Khandala ghat. You can see a large waterfall in the bakground as the MPE snakes its way towards Pune.
