Hyderabad to Kolkata latest route update


Recommended Posts

**Route update NH65/ NH16/ NH14**
Distance -1672 kms
Total time 26 hrs
Standstill time : 1 hr 17 min ( includes breaks + refueling )
Source : Hyderabad
Destination: Asansol
Vehicle - Duster AWD.

End - Saturday 11pm Sept 2020
Toll charges - 1600 ( Paytm fastag discounts )
Diesel - 119 litres
Average diesel rate at all states ~ 80
Road conditions -
(9pm - 1am ) Hyderabad to Vijaywada - nh65 , first 60 kms can get irritating if you drive during daylight and traffic. Post that tarmac is smooth and you can make up time.
( 1am -6 am) Vijaywada - Vizag - Post Tuni till southern Chilka - lots of diversions but they are in a better shape from what I had seen during the last Hyderabad - East Bhutan trip. 33kms before entering Vizag we took the Bypass , it was scenic and scarcely busy although we crossed it at 5:30am .
( 6am -2pm ) Vizag - Chilka - Bhubaneswar : Super scenic + great road. Chilka - Bhubaneswar : Major diversions but manageable with mild traffic from adjoining towns.
( 2pm - 6pm ) Bhubaneswar - Kharagpur : great road ,no issues but tarmac has major undulations , cars with lower GC will bottom out, saw a swift dzire break it's left fog lap. Just be careful. But majorly scenic.
( 6pm -11pm ) Kharagpur - Bishnupur - Raniganj -Asansol : Smooth tarmac, lots of towns / villages enroute, we did it at night, that saved a lot of time. Keep an eye for weak bridges. A brigde we used often for past few years was shattered by an overwhelmed river.
Passes and URLs -
Orissa - https://covid19.odisha.gov.in/ ( 1 pass )
WB- 8017845555 ( send a ping via whatsapp, then respond accordingly)
We were not stopped at any state border for checking passes in the 26 hours of driving.
Note: please research about the days of lockdown in AP/OD/WB, authorities are very strict.

Those who are planning to drive excercise caution and safety.
Have a happy and a safe trip.

Roads are mixed. Overall Civic can manage without any issues.

Facilities are limited once you cross Vizag. 
Fuel stations/Busy dhabas/Toll gates are safe places for power naps. 
Make sure place is busy.
