Snazzy highways..

In an earlier post, I had mentioned how better roads will lead to a road trip tourism boom. I had also mused about how it would be if some petrol pumps that offered great service also had a eatery. Two articles caught my eye over the past few days.

The first was on Reliance Dhabas.

...Located on the major highways across the country, these hospitality formats are planned to be the refreshment hub for frequent travelers and professional drivers with key focus on providing hygienic food and comfortable amenities, including showers, rest and recreation, communication and entertainment...

The second one was on Barista Coffee bars on highways. I personally prefer roadside coffee and tea stalls, rather than coffee priced more after factoring airconditioning (i mean, ambience) and waiters, but both these in tandem with better roads, vehicles will only mean that there will be more of us waiting to do road trips. And it will be a more comfortable one.
