Roads, Roads and more Roads

Some pictures that the international media never shows when it speaks of India. Yes, there are such beautiful roads out there too.

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

    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

    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.

    @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.
