May be m,any woulsn't have travelled by road!

Well ... it is said to be one of the routes you should not miss ... have not done it yet, so can't comment.

Have been wanting to do it (in a open top car if possible!!) ever since I saw Dil Chahta Hai!!

ECR remains the same way!

No great changes, the roads are small, thrill & scenic beauty just remains for ever.

Hope we all race here soon :)

Sure bro! The ECR still remains the same! Just two lanes with separate lanes for bikes on both sides. Its a visual treat to travel in nights in this road as the reflectors will be all along the stretch. But the most dangerous road to travel in nights as many cases of drunken driving accidents are recorded here!

Back after a real enjoyable journey ... PUN-MUM-PUN on the E-Way and back ...

The journey there was a blast ... 97 km from beginning to end of the E-Way in 55 minutes with a pit stop and 3 tolls ... at an average fuel consumption of 6 lits / 100 km!!

Am attaching a pic of the Worli Sea Link ... the photographer was hanging out of my sunroof to take this one!!

Excellent pic. I envy you. Your cars got the sunroof which is a nice feature to have. None of my cars have it.

Thanks ... credit to the photographer.
Was anyway driving at 50, that is the speed limit, and enthusiastically enforced.

My takes on the Sea Link.

Well done ... the approach on the Bandra Side, the road surface ... the approaches to the toll.
Not so good ... the approach at the Worli side.

The link is as yet incomplete, only one side of the road is open, so the 4 lanes have been bifurcated into 2 going each way.
A few accidents on the same have meant that a 50 kmph speed limit is enforced ... I actually saw one Esteem stopped for the same.

The structure is awesome, and well highlighted with the lighting.

Nice experience ... hopefully to improve with the full complement of 4 lanes each way, and maybe a higher speed limit!!
