Hi, can someone please update the road condition between Solapur and Omerga or Zaheerabad. Has it improved or still arounf 70 kms of bad road exists ?

 

Hey Neeraj, The road conditions are more or less still the same. Hasn't seen much of a progress in this stretch.. which is still the only best option to reach Solapur. Drive between Naldurg and Solapur is the most bad stretch.

Road condition around Solapur can not improve due to the heavy vehicle movement there.. Expect very bad roads..

Now we have around 50 kilometers of bad section before Solapur. 

Roads are improving at a very slow pace.

 

Once it is completed, Hyderabad to Mumbai can be done in a single day without any stress. 

Food options are still pretty less between Hyderabad to Solapur. There are no fancy hotels like Hyderabad to Vijayawada.

Yes correct ...As per my last two trips to Shirdi,  I can see the road condition between OMERGA to NALDURG has improved a lot . The earlier route near NALDURG fort was horrible , but now it is very smooth. I am quite sure the stretch between NALDURG and SOLAPUR  must have improved as well.

 

Regarding the food option between SOLAPUR and HYDERABAD, I saw many road side DHABAS but yes my personal feeling says many of them are not suitable  if  we have families with us  especially during night times ... Many times  we take lunch/dinner in HOTEL SAI PRASAD just before NALDURG, which has quite good ambience. There is also KOHINOOR restaurant , which is very big with good ambience and I have seen many BIG BUSES like ORANGE,KESINENI,DIWAKAR etc...used to stop there. I think in coming days we will have many food outlets with roads are improving.

 

When I travelled to MUMBAI ( APRIL- 2015 ) , my MAP MY INDIA navigation took me inside PUNE CITY to catch MUBAI-PUNE EXPRESSWAY . Though I was lucky to enter PUNE around 11:30 to 12PM , still there were lots of traffic inside PUNE city . Do we have a BYPASS before PUNE to catch MUMBAI-PUNE expressway ? 

 

I started from HYDERABAD at around 12:30 PM and reach MUMBAI (HOTEL RENAISSANCE , POWAI) at 2:20 AM with LUNCH,DINNER&BIO breaks. That time (APRIL-2015) , I was not aware of our INDIA-DRIVE website....Else I would have put a detailed travel report......????

Haven't noticed these places at all during my drives through that route. We always used to end up for lunch at Solapur as per our plan. Shall keep an eye on these places shared during my drive this year. Thanks for the heads up @BORNDRIVER

Traveling to Mumbai to Hyderabad this next week end by NEXON Diesel AMT.. suggest some options for traveling.

 

1.best route

2. Safety

3. Halt points

Etc.

 

 

1. Best route :
Hyderabad > Zaheerabad > Solapur > Pune > Mumbai 

 

Road condition is good through out the drive. Humnabad to Solapur is under construction. 

2. Safety
No safety issues, it is one of the busiest road. Avoid night drive between Solapur to Humnabad 

3. Halt points 
Can consider Solapur,

Solapur to Hyderabad wont have much options.

Roads are good. Stick on NH

Hyderabad > Zaheerabad > Solapur > Pune
Around 2 kilometers of bad patch is still pending. 
Roads are good. 

Look out for cops around Solapur, they are like vultures waiting for TS vehicles. :)

It is completely 4-lane road. You need to take a halt at Hyderabad

Day 1: Mumbai > Pune > Solapur > Zaheerabad > Hyderabad

Day 2:Hyderabad > Vijayawada > Machilipatnam 

 

WagonR can do it without any issues. 

Start early in the morning from Mumbai, keep an eye on fog.

Any further update dear members since planning for the mentioned road trip next week.

 

Would start early from Mumbai between 5-6 AM and planning to halt at Hyderabad by late evening/night and then continue next day further.

 

Planning to halt at around Gachibowli near ORR for stay in Hyderabad or any other suggestion would be welcome.

 

Kindly suggest recommended route and stay options available since will be travelling with parents and its kind of first long drive for me.

 

Thanks in Advance.

Gachibowli is ideal for stopover, you can find plenty of hotels. I would suggest Radisson.
If you are looking for any specific budget, I can suggest some options. 

 

Vijayawada to Rajamundry roads are under construction, can be time consuming. 

 

Do update us when you are done with the trip. Do share details your food stops as well.

Completed my Mumbai - Rajahmundry Trip on Hyundai Santro Xing in last 2 days. Was just following the Google Maps (Kms RUn was around 1200 )

 

Here are some points in journey.

 

Day 1:

 

1. Started at 6 AM against planned 5:30 AM from Mumbai Western Suburbs. Hit some traffic around Airoli Toll seems due diversion of Lorry/Container traffic so cost around 20-30 mins extra.

 

2. Stopped after Khalapur Toll at food plaza for breakfast and small rest for vehicle for around 30 mins. This food court has good range for food options available.

 

3.Started again passed thru Pune-Aundh Road there was bit of traffic since running bit with local city traffic also around 10 AM which was on & off bit busy road.

 

4.Moved out of Pune and had breif 10 min around 11 AM after crossed pune limits on NH65.

 

5.Headed towards Solapur after Pune limits the road condition was superb and literally no traffic you can easily cruze around 80 Kmph minimum.

 

6.Halted around Indrapur for 10 mins & then stopped for Lunch at Hotel Nisarg a pretty good eatery place just around 10 kms before solapur & filled fuel.

 

7.Started from Solapur road condition was very for good for around 60 kms stretch from Solapur once you take left on to NH65 from Solapur.

 

8.From around Andur road was rough in patches and lots of diversion and narrow 2 lanes roads for good 20-30 Kms till around Karnataka state border.

 

9.At Karnataka border checks/screening were going for Corona purpose Rapid Antigen tests would be mandatory for those who don't have -ve Test report for passengers from MH. Normal adults will under go thermal screening Test for Senior Citizens after things are fine give a go ahead.

 

10.From There Road condition was pretty good baring some patches before Zaheerabad but lots a highway Patrolling check by KA Police which would irritate since it happens pretty much 10 Kms apart.

 

11.Reached HYB (Kondapur) around 9 PM bit late than expected due to unwanted delays and had overnight halt at friend's place.

 

Day 2:

 

1.After Overnight Rest and fresh up in morning started from HYB around 9 AM since place of stay was near Nehru ORR hardly took 15 mins to make it to it.

 

2.Nehru ORR/Airport route was top class if just can cruze and if you have cruze control in you vehicle will certainly enjoy drive more 😃

 

3.Exited from Exit Point 11 from ORR towards Vijayawada and from there road of NH65 was bit rough and patchy for around 20 Kms during this you will pass by Ramoji Film City.

 

4.After this patch it was smooth ride till around Suryapet where took brief break after around 180 Kms from HYB to 7 Food court for around 30-40 mins had refreshment and fuel top up around 11:40 AM and continued onward journey.

 

5.NH65 Suryapet-Vijayawada outers was Top Class ride.

 

6.Reached Vijayawada around 2 PM and passed thru it to move to NH16 which was bit irritating traffic consumed good 1 Hr to pass thru.

 

7.Once headed towards Eluru it was ok ride with lots expansion works going and diversions possibly it could take at least a year to be fine and smooth I feel.

 

8.Headed towards Tadepalligudem with brief 15 mins break at around Bhimadolu road side tree.

 

 

9.From it was pretty good ride barring few patches and made it to Rajahmundry around 6 PM.

 

Overall Run time was around 22-24 hrs after cutting out breaks in between by driving around 80 Kmph speeds at Majority, also hit 90-100 Kmph speeds for brief periods but for my vehicle and convenience preferred to do it at 80 Kmph.

 

Tolls will cost you around 1400 rupees over all.

 

This ends my first long drive hope this details helps travelers to some extent during their journey. Thanks for fellow members who guided with inputs earlier.

 

Stay Safe & Drive Safe.

Thanks Sagar, had mentioned  a few food points where I had stopped for food, owing to prevailing conditions I was pretty choosy so mentioning them again.

 

Day 1

 

  1. Stopped after Khalapur Toll at food plaza for breakfast at food court & it has good range for food options available, this is Mumbai-Pune Express Highway just after Toll plaza you can see clear hoardings/Display signs before it. Add to Mumbai-Pune Express has 2-3 such food court options en-route either side.
  2. Stopped for Lunch at Hotel Nisarg a pretty decent eatery place just around 10 kms before solapur.

 

Day 2

 

  1. Near Suryapet where took brief break at 7 Food court this has KFC, Coffee Day, some other eateries and restaurant serving tiffins, lunch etc.

  2. Another Option noticed was Subbaiah Hotel which falls around 10 mins before (7 Kms apart as per google maps) while coming from HYB side this can be said as option for Andhra Meals.

 

Other options if I observe shall and share here on a possible return journey some days later. One thing i can say is due to pandemic majority of the Dhabas/Eateries are closed :(

That is surely something to bother about especially when it’s someone who has Immense love for food... Hope things settle down sooner for the better good.

There are a lot pretty decent OYO rooms options available And also other service apartment options available in the same areas where you are looking for around the same budget. You could pick any on MMT as there are too many decent options in your desired price range to choose for..

Hello sagar sir, thanks for the Inputs, on my way back to Mumbai, I opted to skip HYB stay and travelled to Zaheerabad and stayed there in a decent hotel for overnight stay.

 

This was due to save time since I want to start early on Day 2nad it did help me lot.. Anyways shall share details of my return trip in a separate post.

You need not worry as of now no particular restrictions in place can't predict if any new restrictions could be in place or not since its good 2-3 weeks to go, so keep following news.

 

With the situation would suggest to have a RT-PCR test done around 3-4 days before start of journey also now they have cut down cost of test to Rs.500 in Maharashtra, In my case had to wait for my father undertake Rapid antigen test at Karnataka border while heading towards HYB. Possibly the officer on duty then wasn't having such liking towards MH going by his words so better have a -ve RT-PCR certificate handy. 

 

Shouldn't have a issue in drive since can say 90% of stretch is superb in Mumbai-HYB route. If you can start early morning and can make it easily by late evening to HYB if its a bigger car it shall be much more easier. Just follow google maps, Good luck.

 

In my case it was a small car (Santro Xing) and it was my first such long drive didn't have much issue and did it easily in around 14-15 Hrs. In return infact saved much more time 😀

Return Journey from Rajamundry to Pune.

 

Day 1:

 

1. Started from Rajahmundry around after 8:30 AM took Kovvur-Deverapalli road which leads towards Eluru and joins NH16 later its bit shorter route compared to complete NH16 via Ravulapalem-Vijayawada route and good 3 toll booths skipped.

2.Route had bit of traffic and also has good amount of Lorry traffic so wasn't smooth sailing to start with gradually it eased out condition of route was pretty fine but had few diversions once joined NH16 it was smooth sail till Vijayawada city limits.

3.Hit some traffic around vijayawada city took Kanakadurga Flyover and took a lunch break around 12:45 PM you have decent options till around ibrahimpatnam for food on Vijayawada-HYB NH65.

4.Once you hit NH65 towards HYB its just cruise mode after Vijayawada did non stop till Suryapet took a brief halt for refreshment at 7 Food court.

5.Restarted towards HYB and made it to ORR and from there since I planned for halt at Zaheerabad drove for around 80 Kms on ORR itself and took Exit 3 which is for Mumbai Highway.

6.Made it to Zaheerabad around 7:50 PM and stayed at (Hotel Siddhi International) over night.

7. Possibly due to covid scenario occupancy was less, food was pretty good only Veg option available which is very welcome for me. They do provide complimentary BF between (7:30 AM - 10:30 AM)

 

Day 2:

 

1. Didn't opt for BF since I had to start early, started at 6:30 AM did refueling and in 3-4 Kms made it to NH65 towards Solapur.

2.It was smooth ride and even Karnataka borders no issues except for 5 mins halt for police check owing to elections locally.

3.Just around Omerga near Maharastra borders where some stretches of road are two lanes and bit rough took brief halt of 10 mins around 9:30 AM.

4.Once clearing that its smooth ride Solapur. On Solapur- Pune Highway halted at Hotel Nisargh again for food had bit heavy breakfast around 10:30-10:45 AM since we don't want halt before Pune since very less options available.

5.After this food halt was done headed towards Pune it was very smooth ride and made it to Pune around 2:45 PM with a brief halt of 10 mins in between.

 

In major did drive around 80 Km/Hr speed rarely hitting 90s.. Over all it was pretty comfortable ride much better than our expectations.

Since Brezza being bit of bigger vehicle you can do it easily in around 12-14 hrs..

 

But now till May 1st 7 AM restriction are in place in Maharashtra as of now you cannot start early also it would be advised to start bit early around 5-6 AM from Mumbai so that can make it to HYB by late evening at least, there could be some checks en-route owing to current situation.

 

If its not urgent and don't have valid reason better postpone your travel plan a bit. Keep an eye on further restrictions but with current scenario its better to have Covid negative report in hand ready for easy passage as more and more states are imposing stricter restrictions and also May 1st & 2nd fall on weekend so all states are now in weekend lockdown mode.

 

Please plan and travel safely. Good luck.  Also prefer to carry home made food along.

      Road trip experience in a Tesla

      Sharing a road trip experience in EV with Pros and Cons when compared with ICE cars.
      This is not a leisure travel, We had to go on a work trip from SF to LA. I tried to capture as many details as possible.

       
      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 Auto Pilot  Will be sharing more information on Tesla Super chargers in the upcoming posts  
      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 Advantages with Tesla is super charging network 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$

      Received form 35 and NOC from SBI on 06 Feb 2021. I was happy that loan closed but next challenge was how to contact RTO of hypothecation removal.
       
      Searched on internet and there was mixed response. 
       
      Contacted few agents, they quoted me charges ranging from 1200 to 2500 based on how urgent we need it.
       
      But decided to give a try by myself. Searched on net and found below link, 
       
      https://www.transport.telangana.gov.in/html/registration-hptermination.html
       

       
      Once you will click it, it will redirect to other link shown as below
       
      https://tgtransport.net/tgcfstonline/Registration/RegistrationOnline.aspx?Trans=HAT
       

       
      click on Hypothecation/ Hire Purchase/ Lease Termination
       
      If you have original RC then click on YES. Then below window will be open
       

       
      Once you will type above details, in next window you will get your full details. I was not sure whose number to be typed at financer mobile number i typed mine alternate number and it worked 😆. Once click you will be directed to slot booking window (image only for ref)
       

      Click on available slot. Once that is done you will be asked to pay charges. (image just for ref) fees is around 635. Take print out of it (important)
       

       
      Once all done take below document to respective RTA. Below documents required
       
      1. Original RC
      2. Printout of slot booking form
      3. Form 35, 2 nos (original)

      5. Valid insurance (Xerox)
      6. Aadhar (Xerox)
      7. One small polythene pouch to keep original RC in it. At RTA they are charging Rs 5. And for printout it is Rs 10
       
      also keep below doc in case they want (not asked to me)
      1. PUC Xerox
      2. PAN card Xerox
      3. Residence proof
       
      In my case it was RTA Rangareddy. Mine slot booking was on 12 Feb 2021 01:40 to 01:50
       
      Reached there around 12. Agents started chasing me. But i decided not to pay attention. Went to window No 4. Waited for 10 min.
       
      Officer took my documents checked for 30 seconds and issued me slip. Asked me to go to window 6 for photo.
       
      Went to window 6 waited for 10 min. officer took my slip, done some typing on screen took my photo and signature. And told me that RC will be received via post.
       
      Everything done in 30 min of time, no agent.

      Carried Snacks, water can and other essentials to shorten our halts during the journey due to covid....
      ** SINGLE HAND DRIVING
       

       
      Day 1:
      Route: Hyderabad- Vijayawada- Dwaraka Thirumala.
       
      Total distance covered on day 1 :  412 KMS
       
      Total Time: 7 hours 8 min with 2 breaks.
       
      Almost after an year planned for a short trip post Lockdown and all went well and a very much needed break.
       
      Started by 4:25 AM from Hyderabad and reached Dwaraka thirumala by 11:15 AM with 2 breaks.

      As usual roads are pleasant to drive until Vijayawada.. But the strech between Vijayawada(Gannavaram) and Eluru is still under construction with lots of diversions. After crossing Eluru via bypass, the roads are in very bad condition from Bhimadole to Dwaraka.
       
      Done with darshanam and spent an hour or so at the temple premises. Started from Dwaraka and halted at friends place in Eluru.

       

       

       

       

      Day 2:
      Started from Eluru at 5:10AM to Vijayawada kanaka durgamma temple and reached by 6:45AM.... 1 hr 36 min journey time.
      Covid rules are strict and darshanam done in 30 min.
       
      Free darshanam is not available via Hill... only through 100/- or 300/- tickets. 
       
      For free darshanam, park the vehicle below the hill and through stairs you need to reach for darshanam which is free.

       

       

      Started towards Amaravathi(Amaralingeswara swamy temple) and opted to go through Guntur road rather than the Karakatta road was not in a good shape. 
       
      Journey was 1 Hr 25 min and Roads are in good to drive

       

      After completing darshanam started towards Suryalanka beach via Guntur.
      It took 2 Hrs 45 min to reach the destination, roads after crossing Guntur are just average and full of patches...road traffic is not much but due the road condition it took long.
       
      Reached Suryalanka Haritha Resort and checked in by 1:28 PM
       
      ** If you are planning to stay in Suryalanka Haritha resort, make sure to book it in a week advance. During weekends the cost of the rooms are high and less on weekdays.
      Rooms are Good, I have took the AC standard room which costed me 2400+taxes. 

      All the rooms including deluxe and started AC rooms are having the Beach view
       
      Cottages are constructed in 2 rows , front row are the Deluxe cottages and backside row are the Standard AC rooms. In standard AC rooms there are 2 rooms, one in Ground floor and other on the first floor. I opted for the 1st floor room for the beach view. 
       
      Note: Rooms are allotted on First come first serve basis, so its better to arrive on time to get the best room(With all functionalities ).  
       
      When it comes to Food options, only Haritha resort restaurant at suryalanka beach and for snacks we can go for the fried fishes along the roadside exactly opposite to the Haritha resort. 
       
      @haritha restaurant, we can order the food to the room  or you can have it in restaurant. Food is above average.
      Obviously, the price card different from the restaurant menu... so a bit high prices for the room service.
      Breakfast is complementary  and available from 8 AM to 9:30 AM which is of good taste and 3 verities of items( Idli, Bonda, Pongal)

      FYI... Below are the price details for reference: 


      Beach Pics:
       

       

       

       

      Maintenance of beach is not bad
       
      Beach closes by 4PM, and police person starts asking everyone to leave the beach after 4PM.. but what we saw is most of them are in the beach until 6PM.. Nobody is listing to them. 
      People staying in resort can visit the beach during the night as well, there are 2 entries from the beach and its an advantage.

      Day-3 Sunrise :

      Started around 9AM from Suryalanka to HYD via Guntur-Sattenapalli road connecting 167A highway and it took us 8+ hours, with 3 breaks. As we are not in a rush to reach HYD so we were travelling at a speed of 60KMPH and the road condition is excellent until hyd from Piduguralla. 
       
      Total Journey was a pleasant one  and that too after a year and that too Post covid lockdown and a much needed one.
       
      Thank you to all the Forum members as well for their roadtrip's, from which I have took some tips and did this trip  

       

       

       

       

  • 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

      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:

      Hi all,
      I wanted to create the list of states re-imposing e-pass requirements to travel, including  by road.
      Here's what I found. Please add to the list and also once it is lifted, please update the thread.
      I hope it will be helpful
       
      Tamil Nadu
      Dated 9-Mar-2021
      All passengers coming by road and by flight to Tamil Nadu need an e-pass, the state government has decided, in a slew of new rules for domestic and international passengers coming to the state. All passengers from states, except Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Puducherry, need an e-pass to enter the state.
