not of the express highway, but have the pics of khandala (lonawala), which is again a beautiful place to visit. i remember the public toilets at the express highway. these are just a simple issues, and a nice thing to implement though. The steep roads in between, and the blind turnings thrills during the journey.

I have travelled on that road a couple of times too. It is indeed a great experience and due to this expressway the time taken for travel between Mumbai and Pune has been reduced 😀
I wish all the roads/highways are made six-lane or eight-lane. Driving won't be stressful if this is implemented.

Do cement roads cause more harm to tires than regular tar-roads?

Nope... If you ask me I think the quality of the present day tar roads would only harm the tires 😉 the roughness of the concrete road (not cement 😀 ) is perfectly all right 😀 it'll provide the necessary friction for the tires. It would not reduce the life of tire 😀

What's the difference between a concrete road and a cement road? Both are same na?

Cement is just the material. Cement concrete includes cement+aggregate+sand+water. and to lay roads we use cement concrete roads. roads cannot be laid using just cement 😀 You get it? 😀
