Beautiful Roads Of India: Mumbai - Chennai National Highway : NH4

India has a huge road network. There are different kinds of roads maintained by different authorities. The major ones are the National Highways (NH), Expressways, State Highways (SH), District Roads & Village Roads.
NH4 :
 NH 4 links four cities - Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore and Chennai. NH 4 is 1,235 km  in length and passes through the states of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. In Karnataka it passes through Tumkur, Chitrdurga, Dvanagere, Ranebennur, Haveri, Hubli, Dharwad and Belgaum and then reaching Kolhapur - Maharashtra.

I often travel on NH4 from Bangalore to Haveri and then take turn to reach my hometown Sirsi. I love this road because driving is so smooth and makes me crazy. And also I love the beautiful countryside scenes it offers throughout my journey.

Windmills near Chitradurga :
View of wind mills near Chitradurga is awesome. Chitradurga has over 200 wind turbines situated on the surrounding hill.  NH4 offers a spectacular view of these wind mills.

Thanks to National Highway Authority Of India (NHAI) and then prime minister Mr.Atal Bihari Vajpayee for aprpoving this project. And also thanks to those land owners who have sacrificed acres of their land for construction of NH4.
