Observations from my 3000km road trip:
1. Karnataka has some of the best that nature has to offer. It also has the worst roads. Golden Quadrilateral project has not been initiated in many places. I fail to understand as to why even the stop gap arrangements made for the roads are in such bad shape.
2. NH-17 (Bombay to Mangalore), was a dream to drive on till we reached Karnataka. What puzzles me is that when the highway reaches a town/village it is pathetic. However, once you cross the town/village, it is free of potholes.
