Hyderabad to Rourkela Trip by Road

Recommended Posts

Hello Friends,

   I am planning for a road trip from Hyderabad to Rourkela via Nagpur in the month of Nov'20 ( approx 1200 kms). I shall be the solo driver for the journey with family accompanying ( small kid along). Need help with few points:

 

1> Can i make the journey in one day... provided i start very early morning like 3-4 AM.. understand the initial stretch from Hyd is smooth till Adilabad, so early morning drive shud be fine.

2> Have a 5 year old i20 with 36K on it... any checks or pointers to be taken care of for the vehicle for this long run.

3> what will be approx duration for below streches based on road conditions, breaks and other external factors: ( please provide feedback even if you have covered 1 or 2 stretchs of the mentioned routes below )

                      a> Hyd to Nagpur - 500 kms - Approx time ?? Average speed ??

                      b> Nagpur to Raipur - 290 kms - Approx time ?? Average speed ??

                      c> Raipur to Rourkela - 450 kms - Approx time ?? Average speed ??

 4> If i need to take a night halt in/around Raipur, what area could be a better option to stay.. want to avoid bigger cities due to ongoing COVID situation. Is it safe to stay overnight at a hotel considering i have a 4 YO kid with me travelling.

 

Kindly help with these pointers . Appreciate your help.

 

Thanks

Avoid driver, not a practical solution. They expose a lot to the unknown people.

 

Taking a halt is the safest option. 
I have stayed in couple of hotels without any issues, though no one can predict about COVID.
 

Raipur has good hotels, most of the branded hotels like Hyatt and Marriot should be safe.

There is no need to take a break for car. 
Cars are designed to travel more than 1500+ kilometers non stop

But drivers need to take breaks regularly.
Carry lot of water and energy bars, Keep yourself hydrated.

 Make sure you recharge your fast-tag. 

Reliance petrol pumps are good on highways, for washroom breaks.

Hey @Gourav, Be sure to start from Hyderabad by 4 AM on Day 1 and you can stop at Nagpur for Lunch between 1 to 2 PM .. 

Road Conditions are not great between Nagpur and Raipur.. You will reach Raipur by 9 PM.. 

 

On Day 2 You can start late around 9 AM form Raipur after breakfast via Sambalpur and you will reach Rourkela by 7 PM...

 

Do update us back on the current road status after you finish your trip.. Drive safe!

hey Sagar...

 

  thanks for the info.... from your reply it looks like you mean i will have an average speed of 50-55 kmph max for the whole distance and all stretches covering from Hyderabad till Rourkela....

 

Are the road conditions so bad that one can only make this average speed throughout ??

Onward Journey road details:

 

1> Hyderbad to Nagpur - would rate it 9/10... 2-3 spots post Adilabad it had some constructions going on, rest of the road is excellent.

2> Nagpur Bypass - the traffic is a bit slow, road conditions are good but the traffic distribution across that stretch is what that brings down the drive to a below average speed. Rating- 7/10

3> Nagpur to Raipur - This is where is closed my Day-1 trip . Again road conditions are excellent till Rajnandgaon. Post that lot of constructions work and road conditions are bad, especially aroudn the residential places and cities on the path. Will try to download my speed graph for this trip across the route. From Durg till Raipur, lot of bad roads and city/highway traffic. Took me almost 1.5-2 hours to cover a 50KM stretch. From Durg till Raipur, cant travel beyond 50kmph. i entered Durg strecth around 6 PM which is a very busy time, avoid early evening hours if possible. Overall rating 8/10 , Post Durg till Raipur stretch : 4/10

4> Day 2 - Raipur to Sambalpur - started at 10 AM and reached by 2 PM, excellent roads, no constrcutions, lots of rural areas on the chattisgrh side, so need to be careful with public and cattle on the highways, else it was great drive. Overall rating : 9/10

5> Sambalpur to Rourkela - Once again, excellent roads, L&T Express highway, was a smooth ride till Rourkela outskirts. Once we reached near to Rourkela and the industrial areas, lots of trucks parked over road and limited driving conditions, else all looks good.Overall rating : 9/10

 

Overall the whole onward journey i would say had covered approx 95% of the route over 3 highways, NH44, NH53 and SH10 and it was a great drive excpet for the Day-1 final 2 hours between Durg to Raipur.

 

Would plan to download my GPS data and post my trip log speed graph and trip pathway so as to get an idea of the overall stretch and drive. SInce i was with family and a small kid, i was kind of down by 15-20 KMPH on an average atthe good streches over the highways. One with a better car and good driving skills, can add 15-20 KMPH average speed to the whole trip log data i had posted earlier.

 

Thanks again to all of you for the guidance and suggestions. Return journey will take a while, but would surely come back with that as well.

Thanks Gourav a nice brief summary ...It gives a good idea on recent Hyd to Nagpur road condition and onwards till  Rourkela.....Though I am native of Odisha but never been to SAMBALPUR ,ROURKELA those areas.....😀😀

 

The road condition between DURG & RAIPUR is full of pot holes or it is just patchy stretches......?

2> for transit traveler or anyone planning a night halt in Chhattisgarhi or Maharashtra, are RT-PCR test results asked for, even for fully vaccinated folks ?

 

Kindly help with latest info as of Jan 2022 and ongoing Omicron crisis.

 

Thanks for your time.

Hi 

As per the current status, there are no restrictions so far, but it is always suggested to carry the soft copy of the final vaccination certificate.

But sometimes, you may be asked for it at the borders by the police. Not that you will be restricted from entering but a bribe in the form of fine is expected.

      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
