  • Prashant says:

    Hey, why Chennai-Bangalore highway is not in this list?

  • Mohit says:

    Guys, who are comparing these roads with US must understand that in India, there’s just a few expressways, not more than 20-30 but in US, there are thousands of such sort of expressways. People in US never uses the term Highway as there are no Highways but only expressways.

    • admin says:

      Hi Mohit, We are not comparing India against USA, We are still count as developing country and for a country like us these Expressway are good achievements.

    • aaa says:

      since when did US has 1000s of expressways? check your facts.

      • Ryan says:

        We don’t have thousands, but they are ubiquitous and (generally) well-maintained. I was pretty impressed by the Mumbai-Pune expressway and the ones leading from Delhi to Gurgaon and Noida, though! I remember being both surprised and quite excited to open my eyes on the way out of Mumbai and see multiple lanes of fast-moving traffic, haha.

      • sanch says:

        The US Interstate highway network which is actual expressways was built in the 50s and over 41000 miles long . India only has 900 km of expressway which can be compared to US interstate or the Chinese Superhighway which is around 111,000 km . Durgapur Expressway is not even a proper expressway and hence cannot be included in the list

        • Kallol Dasgupta says:

          Can you please explain why do you feel Durgapur Expressway is not a proper expressway?

          • sanch says:

            Every entry and exit point must be through a ramp or slip off roads. The Durgapur Expressway does not follow that norms

          • DEEP M. says:

            that is freeway where ramps should be there to connect thats the only difference btw expressway and freeway and durgapur expressway is basically a expressway and is under construction for 6 lane in different zones and will be one of the best expressways after the full construction is done, just wait for that..

          • sanch says:

            Your definitions are not of international standards. An access controlled highway is called an expressway and Durgapur expressway is certainly not that.

    • sanch says:

      There are highways in US . The US Interstate highway is the expressway network in the US

  • The Ahmedabad-Vadodara Expressway looks phenomenal, like it is in Canada. Brings back memories of a ride on the Toronto- Montreal Expressways.

  • the noida-greater noida express way is simply beautiful but at the same time its very accident prone. people use to fly with a speed of 170- 200.. all the 1st grade cars like lambhorgini and many lavishin cars flys there just because all those cars visit budhh international curcuit.. the circuit is beautiful and it is now the heart of greater noida city. Eventually.. if you want to see imported cars and bikes.. drive on that express way. i bet you’l be astonished by those speeding cars.

  • rohit says:

  • Shrikant Ratan says:

    one more to be added is Belgaum to Dharwad, Karnataka, part of GQ, one of the most beautiful road in India, just travel a distance of about 80 kms and you will believe me, its 6 lane beautifully lit with lakhs of reflectors.

  • Soham says:

    You should also add Nashik Mumbai (2/3 lane stretch of around 150 km) of NH3…It is one of the most beautiful roads i have ever driven on..

    And trust me, I travel to Pune via Mumbai using both Nashik-Mumbai and Mumbai-Pune highway(As the Nashik Pune road is terrible with work in progress)

    And honestly I prefer the Nashik-Mumbai stretch to the Mumbai Pune which sits at the top pf this list!

  • Jesus F***ed All says:

    due to yadavas and gujjars the two traidional herder bread, the gurgaon and noida highways are ruined, as these people are rash drivers and are uncivilized. South India has beautiful highways, with amazing scenic view but with very bad looking people and with weird food. However south indians are usually more civilized, except those who are living in bangalore
