Major Road networks of India

India has the second largst road network in the world, with over 3.314 million kms of roadways spread across the length and breadth of the country. The roads are primarily made of bitumen, with some National Highways having concrete roads. The concept of expressway roads is also catching up in India, and the Mumbai - Pune expressway and Delhi Gurgaon expressway are the finest examples.

The history of roads in India takes you back to the Indus Valley Civilization, where street pavings were made for the first time in India. Around the 1st centuy, the Silk route was made which tremendously aided in trade across India. The medieval India saw the emergence of the Grand Trunk Road. The GT Road, as it is famously called, starts in Sonargaon near Dhaka in Bangladesh and ends at Peshawar in Pakistan and links some of the major cities in india from Kolkata to Amritsar.
