If anyone is interested in calculating statewise road length statistics
from OpenStreetMap data, I just documented the process here:
http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/PlaneMad/diary/37790

This can be used to compare with official figures and check how accurate
they are and also detect what areas needs more mapping.

The code can be repurposed for calculating the length of any other linear
map feature like railways, waterways or power lines as well by changing the
tags used to filter the data. Do share any interesting results you find.
