More scenes from NH48.
There is four-laning work being carried out, and per the NHAI site (link - "Projects Under Implementation as on 30th November 2009", link accessed Jan 03 2010), an 81 km stretch, connecting Neelamangala Junction on NH 4 with NH 48 to Devihalli, is being four-laned. Much of the work as far as laying the foundation and some of the tarring of the roads goes, but it will probably take another year or so before it is completed and you have all four lanes operational. The travel time for that 81 km stretch will likely come down to an hour or so, down from the present 90 minutes it takes. These photos give a glimpse of what has been constructed.
