[Talk-in] Time for consensus

On  first look the user will be able to identify that a particular road is 
an NH. An NH could be single lane, however when sees an NH it also means it 
connects important cities and are there are remote chances that you would 
get lost on a NH.  If the number of lanes are the criteria that would 
identify the condition of a road, I disagree. There are quite a few single 
lane roads which are extremely good (Coimbatore-Palakkad) and there are 
highways which are 4 laned but maintained in bad shape.
