Hyderabad ORR toll system

ORR has tolls at all the entry and exit points. 

At the entrance you need to collect the ticket and payment will be made at the exit.

ORR started, multiple entry toll system.
Pay the toll at the exit(multiple entry) and you can use it multiple times.

Accidents:

Accidents are very prone to happen on all the roads across the world. No matter how sophisticated the system is built.

Hyderabad ORR is no exception.

 

Truck parked on the left lane + XUV driver slept while driving.

3260_road.jpg

 

HY28ORR_ACCIDENT_1700558f.jpg

 

Few tips from my side:

 

  • Please do not cruise on Fast lane (right most), Use fast lane only to overtake and switch back to Lane-2.

     

  • Dividers are small, vehicles might jump into your lanes during high speed accidents, If you are in Lane-2 it will be an added advantage at least to some extent.

     

  • People often tend to get too relaxed on the ORR, specially after a long tiring drive. It leads to a loss in concentration and ultimately driver tends to sleep at the wheel. If you are sleepy avoid ORR at any cost.

     

  • Always check the tire pressure before hitting ORR, low tire pressure can lead to tire bursts.

     

  • Fog is high during winters, always slow down when the visibility is poor.

     

  • I have seen some trucks clogging fast lanes with speeds less than 40 km/hr. It will create issue during night driving, some of them will not even have a tail lamp/reflector. So, be cautious.

     

  • Some times municipality trucks water the plants on the fast lane without proper warning signs. Keep a close eye on them.

Don't you guys think quality is going down from past 1 year?
I feel it very bumpy sometimes, Hope they wont go down further.

Quality is going down, specifically at some bridge joints.

Anyways this is best outer ring road in India.


Picture from our last drive.

I agree! Quality is down when compared to past 2 years. It became worst in the bridge joints as @gowtham said.

 

I do take my civic at 200+ kms in the joints. My soft suspension is saving me from the bumps. But thr are few bumps towards Patancheru exit and warangal exit.

 

They are super bumpy. Car ll fly literally from the road. But civic has super down force aero dynamics by default. Hence able to touch the tarmac just in a fraction of seconds. Otherwise airborne!

 

ORR is still the best road. But need some touch-up work to make it amazing.

Yup as [mention=1]gowtham[/mention] said quality is down..
 
Good thing is after demonetisation they are accepting VISA card payments and paper less transactions with no physical receipt at tolls, you will get a SMS from Eagle Infra with the the link to e-receipt.


Traffic flow has increased a lot.
Compared to last few years.

They should implement fast-tag(RFID) or touch and go systems.

Gachibowli exit queue is getting more and more.

I guess they have a plan to implement Paytm like other GMR tolls did, but I am personally not comfortable with lowering window and scanning the QR code, I rather opt for paying with card / cash as any which ways I stopped my vehicle

Nice post with lot of information and good review though!

I agree to the point that there are lot of accidents on ORR. Especially to the people who travel early in the morning with high speed and also to those who Drives all the way through bumpy roads and once the tyre touches ORR, changes their driving mode to relaxed driving and falls asleep!!

I have been to movie towers and I say it's a very good spot for photo shoot and then hangout with friends in penalty box for a quick tea break!

Exactly the same thing I was telling to my wife last week.

Especially upto airport, roads are pretty uneven. Not recommend to push beyond 90-100  considering the traffic & unevenness of the road.

Agree on bumps.

This stretch is very highly used and oldest of all other sections.

Gachibowli to Mumbai highway is still better, less traffic and smooth.
People who are pushing their cars need to be careful on those bridge joints, some of them are very notorious, I can see skid marks after those bridges, indicating loosing control.

 

Did anyone try Ghatkesar to Shamirpet, It is the newest section.

Excellent point @gowtham I have always advised my friends this on ORR.

So many times without our mistake we might end up in tragic road accidents and such small things can make a difference between life and death / disability. 

 

Also very nice clicks and info.. will be of great help to all driving enthusiasts planning to visit our lovely city, Hyderabad.

Yesterday night a swift did two 360 degree turns on ORR due to tire blast.

He was driving 120+ can't judge the exact speed, must be around 140 km/hr

It came to a halt after hitting the side barricade, no injuries to anyone. Luck guy.

Guys please inspect tires before hitting ORR, high-speed runs will generate lot of heat, poor tires will lead to tire burst.

Any new update on Hyderabad ORR.

Now the circuit is almost complete.

Anyone got a chance to complete 160 kilometers in a single stretch?

New Street lights are added near the curves and exits.

I hate those poles which disturbed the view.

Im planning to drive the complete circuit this month.

Street lights are still not functional.

I think those are installed to justify the increase in toll price.

Is it 1/- per kilometer?

Once the ORR is full, what will happen if I enter at Gachibowli and exit at the same toll. [emoji14]

It is approximately one rupee per kilometer.
Previously, Gachibowli to Shamshabad is 20 rupees, now it is around 30 rupees.
Please correct me if it is wrong.

Even I am curious on this, but I don't think that is possible. We will be entering the first toll gate on the left side where started but we will never reach the same toll gate on the right. Just a wild assumption correct me if I am wrong!

Yep.. it's almost 1 rupee per km... possibilities are there to end the drive in the starting point. Coz, Gachibowli is the tail attached to the circle. So, my doubt is if we don't take the gachibowli exit tail, we will be simply circling the circuit?

Yes, I think. 

 

Hyderabad: ORR will be a full ring only by August
Except for the 1.1-km stretch at Kandlakoya of Medchal mandal, the HMDA was able to complete work on 156.9 km of the ORR.

Almost 10 years.
Paradise for car lovers.

Hyderabad members can enjoy long drives in circles.
Two circles is good enough for a weekend. [emoji14]

Least price is under 20/-
You can drive 160+ kilometers with 20 /-?
I think they will keep some checkpoint?

Yesterday one of my colleague sparked a discussion on the similar topic

He says speedometer of the vehicle measures the speed of the wheel not speed of the vehicle, this means vehicles with bigger wheels(Volvo bus for example) at 100kmph on speedometer can over take a small car which is doing 140kmph on speedometer.

Is that true? Or it is just a blind assumption he is making?

No true for sure.

We can simple put it in other words.

Suppose if you upgrade your car tires to bigger wheels, there can be little variation in speed, If you are doing 100 it may show somewhere between 97~103, depending on the tire size.

Variation will mostly stay under 10 km/hr.

A Volvo doing 100~120 km/hr will defiantly feel as if it is doing 140 km/hr, due to huge mass.

 

We chased a Volvo doing 110 km/hr on Hyderabad to Bangalore highway. 
He is constantly doing 110 km/hr, not slowing down for traffic. People who see a huge Volvo charging at them, they simple move to left lane to let it pass.

 

In our case we need to switch between lanes. We were doing 100~130 km/hr to keep up with it.

      Roadtrips... long drives... holiday to the hills driving our car, gives a high to all the drivers. Driving to the beaches or to the unexplored hills with our family or friends is an all-time favorite activity. Driving is fun, but a single error makes it a disaster.
       
      All drivers know the feeling - a frightening realization behind the wheel of the car when a wave of drowsiness hits, that you may be too tired to go on. A blink of an eye is all it takes for one to end up trapped inside a toppled car or a badly mangled car in the opposite lane.
       
      20% of the accidents on Indian Highways are caused by driver fatigue says a survey. It all happens in seconds, as said above, in a blink of an eye. Drowsiness is extremely dangerous.
       
      Pushing yourself beyond the limits, just to make it on time or just to boast to your friends of your achievements of "non-stop 800kms drive" is the last thing you would want to do.  

      You Can’t Afford to Drive on Through Fatigue
       
      Fatigue is a serious concern for everyone on the road. Feeling sleepy makes a driver, less attentive, and affects the driver’s ability to make quick decisions. You need to be able to navigate, merge safely, respond to unpredictable drivers, accidents, potholes or even the sudden appearance of a cattle. 
       
      Delayed reaction time can mean the difference between life and death – for you, or another person on the road. A tired mind also has more trouble concentrating, making it difficult to judge speed and distance. 
       
      Entering a trance-like state while driving is a trait we notice quite often while driving on highways at a constant speed, at constant cabin temperature. This is known as Highway Hypnosis. Becoming attuned to your body and its need for rest and sleep will make you a safer driver.
       
      Warning Signals that It’s Time to Get Off the Road
       
      Driving requires your undivided attention. If you notice one or more of these signs, it is time to get off the wheel and rest.
       
      Frequent yawning & fidgeting   
      Frequent lane changes without knowing  
      Tailgating  
      Erratic Braking  
      Inconsistent speed  
      Delayed reaction time  
      Missing on turns and signboards  
      Missing to check on ORVMs IRVMs  
      Missing to use indicators   
      Rolling down the window for fresh air  
      Blurred vision or frequent blinking  
      5 Tips to Combat Fatigue
       
      1. Surveys show that a short nap can increase alertness and significantly lower the risk of driver fatigue. Take a short twenty-minute nap, preferably before you become too sleepy.
       
      2. Avoid medications that may induce drowsiness. 
       
      3. Eat a healthy and balanced meal at regular intervals. Lack of proper food leads to a drop in blood sugar levels which makes us drowsy. Also, heavy meals make us lazy and sluggish increasing the drowsiness. 
       
      4. Coffee, smoking, turning up the volume on the radio and fresh air only work for short periods of time. Do not rely on them to keep you alert. (Personal experience, play those songs that give you a good feeling. Not too loud and not too much music. Play it at a medium volume, this will help you cruise at a constant speed making you feel attentive.) 
       
      5. Stay hydrated and also keep switching between ‘recirculating’ and ‘fresh-air’ modes on the air-con. A change in temperature helps you stay more alert. (Personal experience, roll down the window and allow fresh air and those traffic sound to enter the cabin. Hearing those makes us attentive and lets us drive till we find a good tree to rest under.)

      Above all, never forget to take naps at regular intervals. It's not only beneficial to you, but also to your car, its engine, and tires.  If you are really tired, never attempt to drive beyond the limits. It's your maturity and safe driving habits that ultimately call you a good driver, not your "800kms non-stop achievements".

      Hello all,
      This is my first post in the forum.
      As my status suggest, i'm newbie here☺️
      My profile;
      Total experience behind wheels: less than 1 year
      Total kms traveled: below 8k (with only 1 long drive ~1600kms i.e; Hyd-Pune-Mumbai-Aurangabad-Nanded-Hyd in Sep 2017)
      Car owned: Baleno petrol manual transmission.
      Travellers: Me, better half, 2 kids (10Y, and 5Y)
       
      Before posting as a new topic, i browsed all the topics for the topic to start.
      My intention is to take expert tips from all expert guys like you.
       
      Kindly bear with me if you find these queries childish, as i can't change stepney by myself!
       
      1. During ascending on ghat road (which i observed on Lonavala ghat road), i drive in 2nd gear. At the hair pin curve, applied full accelarotor, as i felt my vehicle may not move further. Scary experience. Is it normal?
      Somebody suggest me to use 1st gear for those ascending hair pin curve...
       
      2. I have read lot of experience of driving in Wayanad. With my above experience can I hit the road? Planning this October holidays after getting 3rd service done.
      My wife drive well if the roads are well mainatained like NH44. 
       
      3. Does Nitrogen gas really helps for better maintenance of the tyres?
       
      I will continue post my queries here in this forum, if i get some response as I believe in learning is continuous process until you die!
      Note: I start exploring the forum very recently. Had i read all the post before my unplanned tour to Mumbai, i would never taken the route of NH65 especially from Omerga to Sholapur?.
       
      Thank you for your time and valuable inputs.

      Beautiful 8-lane outer ring road. 160 kilometers. No entry  for 2,3 wheelers. No traffic signals or speed breakers.
  • Our picks

    • 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

      A day before the trip
       
      Planning:
      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$
