Good News....This is the thunder before the showers... signalling that elections are round the corner!!!!. 6 hrs to Mumbai could come with other perks such as Ease of reaching MOPA for the Maharastrians......Doomsday for tourism in South Goa..... Contractors and Politician spiralling inot Crorepattis and for sure as always.... this highway could last only 6 months... be riddled with pot holes, stray cattle, highway robberies till the next elections approach.

Let us enjoy till then!!!
