New 4-lane toll highway connecting Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Drive between to Narketpally to Ongole is bliss. Road quality is excellent.

 

Total Distance : ~240 Kilometers from Narketpally to Ongole (medarametla).

 

Current state: Almost completed, Work is pending near few bridges and villages.

 

NAM express improves the connectivity across different cities. 

 

1. Hyderabad to Chennai route:

Hyderabad --> Narketpally --> Mirayalaguda --> Piduguralla ---> Addanki --> Ongole --> Chennai

 

2. Hyderabad to Tirupati route:

Hyderabad --> Narketpally --> Mirayalaguda --> Piduguralla ---> Addanki --> Ongole--> Nellore -->Tirupati

 

3. Hyderabad to Pondicherry route:

Hyderabad --> Narketpally --> Mirayalaguda --> Piduguralla ---> Addanki --> Ongole --> Nellore--> Chennai--> Pondicherry

 

4. Hyderabad to Guntur route:

Hyderabad --> Narketpally --> Mirayalaguda --> Piduguralla ---> Sattenepalle --> Guntur

 

5. Hyderabad to Suryalanka Beach route:

Hyderabad --> Narketpally --> Mirayalaguda --> Piduguralla ---> Sattenepalle --> Guntur --> Ponnuru -->Suryalanka beach

 

6. Mumbai/Pune to Chennai route:

Mumbai --> Pune --> Hyderabad --> Narketpally --> Mirayalaguda --> Piduguralla ---> Addanki --> Ongole--> Nellore --> Chennai

 

7. Delhi to Chennai route:

Delhi --> Nagpur --> Hyderabad --> Narketpally --> Mirayalaguda --> Piduguralla ---> Addanki --> Ongole--> Nellore --> Chennai

 

Few issues on this route.

  • No proper restaurants.
  • Larges number of cattle and stray dogs on the roads.
  • Curves are very sharp. Poor banking angles.
  • Slow moving bikers on the fast lane.
  • U-turns at blind curves.

 

How much time it will take from Narketpally to Ongole?

It took me around 3:30 hours to cover 240 Kilometers.

 

Fuel station from Narketpally to Ongole?

You can find good number of fuel stations every 30 kilometers, Make sure you carry cash.

Very few stations have card facility.

 

Best restaurants from Narketpally to Ongole?

1. Hotel Vivera before Narketpally. You can find it on google maps.

2. Tanguturu toll palza food court

Yes they have built a restaurant on the toll booth.

Restaurant sits on the first floor, middle of the road with beautiful view of the road and cars.

Thank you for sharing

When you say almost completed, How many kilometers still pending?

 

more than 95% completed. Bridges and village crossings are still pending. You will merge into single lane and will be back on to 4-lane.

Hardly 0.5 kilometre stretches. We did not face any issues, traffic is very less.

I don't think it will be completed by now.

Work is almost stopped.

But the bad road is hardly around 2~3 kilometers in those 240 kilometers.

I enjoyed driving on this road.

how is the road from ongole to nellore?

Update us with the pictures.

Some bits are still incomplete, roads merge into single lanes near bridges and villages.

what is the full form of NAM ?

Driving by this road is really enjoyable...now everything is fine with the road you can easily cruise to120-130km/hr, Traffic will be less in this highway.

Problem with NAM expressway? it is not elevated highway. 

I can see plenty of cows and dogs on the road.
Curves are poorly laid. I had tough time negating a high speed curve. Poor banking angels.

Agree on it, traffic is less.
But near some villages we need to slow down a lot.

@Gowtham I am travelling with my Family to Tirumala from Hyderabad(Gachibowli), Do you still suggest NAM expressway or via Kurnool highway. I find the Kurnool route is shorter and the time difference as per Gmaps is almost 2hrs lesser. 

 

As, you are from Gachibowli, Kurnool highway is better.

      Hyderabad to Hamsaladeevi Beach - A hidden Paradise
       
      After a long wait for the December trip, we kick started our vacation to the most beautiful Hamsaladeevi beach located in the Krishna district, Andhra Pradesh.
       
      Usually many of them skip this place due to lack of accommodation, but you will find a decent stay in Vijayawada which is around 80 kms approximately from Hamsaladeevi. It is definitely worth travelling so far to see the beauty of this Sagara Sangamam, where river Krishna meets the Bay of Bengal.
       
      We started at an early hour from Hyderabad and reached Vijayawada by 10 AM and checked into the OYO hotel. There are no food joints available at Hamsaladeevi beach so we packed the lunch from the hotel and headed out. Vijayawada to Hamsaladeevi drive took us 3 hours with some breaks.
       
      Hamsaladeevi village is 24 kms away from Avanigadda and we reached Hamsaladeevi by 3 PM. After a long drive from Hyderabad, there was an adrenaline rush gushing out to see this most beautiful place and couldn't wait to snap the sandy beach and the 'river-beach' meeting point. This point is 2 km away from the beach (From Hamsaladeevi village, beach is 4 kms) and we drove our car on the beach side shore to the port to see the confluence.

       
      Distance : 376 km
      Ride: Honda City
      Fuel : Petrol
      Mileage : 15 kmpl
      Hotel : OYO rooms (2000/- per night)
       
      Best Route 2016
      Hyderabad --> Suryapet --> Vijayawada -->Pedapulipaka --> Madduru --> Thotlavalluru --> Nimmagadda --> Avanigadda --> Nagayalanka --> Chodavaram --> Hamsaladeevi Beach
       
      Note: Don't take any diversions from the mentioned route else you might end up between bad conditioned roads and longer distances as you pass
