Road condition from Hyderabad to Bhopal

Recommended Posts


I am planning to drive to Bhopal from Hyderabad with family. Has anyone traveled recently by road? Can we do it in one day, if we start at 5 am from Hyderabad ? How is the road condition from Hyderabad to Nagpur and from Nagpur to Bhopal.

Hi @Abhijain,

Hyderabad to Nagpur can be done easily in 8 to 9 hours for 500 kms with a break in between. The roads are excellent.

Beyond Nagpur, the roads are under construction which would take about 8 hours for 350 kms.


I would recommend you to break your travel into 2 days for a safer and tireless drive.

Or Plan your drive to start at 3 AM from Hyderabad and you might reach Bhopal by 8 or 9 PM.    (Avoid late night drives in this stretch after cross Nagpur)


Drive Safe and update us back once you are done with your drive. Cheers!

Any security concerns?

Be sure to carry the interstate permits required.

Also, make sure that you start early and finish your trip during the day light.

Cautious about the road conditions after the Nagpur. Sudden potholes could surprise you.

Carry a tire inflator along.

Fuel up between regular intervals once it gets half done.

Link to my post on another thread, containing latest updates on Hyderabad to Nagpur travel by road. Based on my trip today, 27th July 2020. hth


For Hyd to Nagpur I've posted above, for Nagpur to Bhopal I do not have much to say, except that the roads from Nagpur until the Indore exit at Betul from the National Highway are quite good. This is based on the Journey I did from Nagpur to almost Indore (Dewas) on 28th July 2020.


FUEL TIP: Diesel Prices in Maharashtra were cheaper by 2 rupees per litre, so I got my tank filled before crossing over to MP. Saved 60 Rupees.



There is road construction (main highway is under maintenance) going on near the Thermal Power Plant which you see when you are leaving Nagpur. You will have to use the service road for a few km before you can rejoin the highway. So please take care to not leave Nagpur at a crowded time, or your service road experience may consume more time.
Dug up road starts here and ends here.

From there until border crossing into MP things are OK. No particularly bad patch.


MP Border crossing is a free-for-all. The guy sitting at the "CAR" lane just lets you through. No questions, no need to stop even. Just slowing down, making eye contact, and being waved through is enough.


Once inside MP, the road is excellent. Fun to drive. You can easily go to speeds like 140 or so in many parts of the highway. I would still recommend being careful when the "GHAT STARTS" signs are seen. Even though the ghats are not really very complex at all, just some curves and you are through.


Until Betul, where I got off the nice road bound to Bhopal, onto NH47 towards Indore (which isn't 4 lane) things are great. You should not experience any trouble from the road.


FASTag: Very recommended. Do use. Makes things a breeze at almost all of the toll booths. I have a PayTM FASTag and it works great.
(The only place where I have found it to not work is the Hyderabad Airport car parking, which for some reason only supports ICICI FASTag)
TOLLS: There is one Toll Booth shortly after leaving Nagpur city limits where FASTag wasn't working and they charged me 85 Rupees in cash. Other than that, from Nagpur till the Indore exit near Betul I crossed 2 FASTag enabled Toll Booths which charged me 80 (Khambara Toll Plaza) and 85 (Milanpur Toll Plaza) Rupees respectively.

    • COVID vaccine bot for Hyderabad
      COVID vaccine bot which will check the vaccine availability in Hyderabad.

      Click on the link check the vaccine availability group.

      It should be the fastest bot since it is restricted it only for people in Hyderabad.

      Highest latency is close to 16 minutes. Planning to cut it down further by adding more servers depending on users. 
      Vaccine availability is categorised based on age and vaccine type. 
      All the locations across Hyderabad are covered.

    • Hyderabad to Gottamgutta, A short weekend getaway..
      Distance: 120 kms.  Road condition: Excellent (upto Zaheerabad) You divert from the highway towards Chincholi forest reserve near the Mahindra factory exit. The road is a single lane road and through the farms. 
        We started from Miyapur around 7 AM in 3 cars. Packed all the food and water. 
      Note: Be sure to carry your shoes as there would be a short trek to reach the banks of the lake. 
      I will let the pictures do the talking.   The road towards the Chincholi forest after getting down the NH 65

      The weather was good as the sun shone gently on us that morning

      The entry gate of the Chincholi forest was very welcome

      Though it was a mud track beyond the gate, the drive was smooth and fun.

      The track will is pretty narrow to just fit in 1 car at a time

      Our first pit stop was a small temple enroute amidst the Chincholi forest

    • Road trip in Electric Vehicle, San Francisco to Los Angeles
      Sharing a road trip experience in Tesla, will be update this log on daily basis(Three days trip). 
      This is not a leisure travel, We had to go on a work trip from SF to LA.
      I will be sharing road trip experience in EV with Pros and Cons when compared with ICE cars.

      Car Specifications:
      Range: 600 kilometers per charge (EPA) 0-100: 3.8 Seconds Top speed is limited to 250km/hr  Supports upto Level-3 charging : 250KW/hr Will be sharing more information on Tesla Super chargers in the upcoming posts  
      A day before the trip
      Road trips in electric cars need some planning when compared to traditional(ICE) cars. 
      STEP 1: 
      You can use Tesla website to plan your trip, Select the car that you are planning to take on a drive Check out the website for fun : https://www.tesla.com/trips SF to LA has close to 10+ Tesla super chargers(Distance : 600+ kilometers)
      STEP 2: 
      Calculate total charging time required, you can check Tesla website to understand your trip plan Total charging time required on a 616 kilometers trip is 55 minutes Details given above are in ideal conditions: 90% charge before you start, follow speed limits, no opposite wind, no cold weather(below 0C), no snow storm etc In real world, range varies, this is similar to our ARAI mileage Tesla calculates/displays range based on EPA(ARAI), add 15~20% range error All the Tesla Chargers are located close to some of the best food courts/restrooms  Total saving for the trip when compared with gas cars is 52$
