No, I am not going to write about how benefitial the Mumbai-Pune Express highway is… Just some glimpses of what I saw on it , and was struck by, while travelling to Mumbai last weekend…How I wish i had a camera mobile that time!!
At the beginning of the Highway, there’s a huge board:”DO NOT STOP ON THE EXPRESS WAY” . Right in front of that board, two big cars were parked, and a big congregation of its passengers had gathered and were discussing what seemed to be their khandaani affairs! How good was that scene!
Midway between Mumbai and Pune, they were recolouring the dividing lines on the road. So i guess they had to scrub off the older lines. This was happening simultaneously for a long span. One worker was scrubbing the line, another was sweeping off the scraped color with a broom. And later in the line, I guess the brooms were less, so they did it with branches of neem trees!! What a combination of ancient and modern techniques!! 🙂
After Vashi, there are two parallel bridges to be crossed. As my bus passed over one of them, I read this line witten on the other one “Non-Smoking is the bridge to Good Health”. Classy, clear and clever, right!!
