How long did it take you to travel along the road, say from Delhi to Calcutta?
What was the quality of the road surface?
What speed could you travel at?

We spent nine days, if I remember correctly, traveling from Delhi to
Calcutta, but that is only because we spent so much time talking to
people along the way, both Indians living along the route and the
contractors building the road. Where the road was complete, the quality
was generally very good, and you could go up to 75 miles an hour, which
is very unusual in India! In some places there have been quality
problems, partly because contractors sometimes cut corners to meet
deadlines. And where construction is not complete, you have the usual
yawning potholes that can slow you to a crawl.
