Future India - Highway Guidelines

The golden quadrilateral project was a landmark in the history of Indian highways. Since then no such big project was implemented for Indian Highways. In India the highways though efficiently built are in a very pathetic state. These highways should be categorized into national highways (connecting metropolitan cities), state highways (connecting second class cities), district highways (connecting towns and villages). These highways should never criss-cross one another in a X-ing manner to prevent slowing down of traffic by one type of highways to the other. They should meet at certain points efficiently so that the traffic speed does not get hindered.

Some of the main points we should keep in mind for highways: -
1) There should be separate highways for private cars / buses and trucks (freights).
2) Speed limit should be fixed and in no case should be brought down or up unnecessarily.
3) There should be bye-lanes along the highways near towns and cities so that the daily traffic of these places should not get inside highways.
4) If possible the highways should be elevated if it passes through a city or town to prevent traffic.
5) Proper bus services should be introduced connecting big cities, small cities and towns.
6) No political / social demonstration should be allowed on highways.
7) Slow moving traffics should not be allowed in highways.

If these basic points are followed properly (there are many more), only then we can introduce big projects like bus and other transport systems that can travel through these highways at speeds close to 400 kms / hr. Similarly dedicated elevated lines for rapid transit of trains between big cities can be introduced if given a proper thought. (according to my last to last post)
