Pune-Jalna-Nagpur Road Condition information


Recommended Posts

I recently ( onwards 24 Nov 2020 and return 28 Nov 20) and travelled from Pune to Nagpur by car.
Started at0430 from Pune. The Road upto Jalna is 4 lane busy traffic . Thereafter took Jalna-Sindhed Raja-Mehkar-Malegaon-Shelu Bazar-Karanja route.
The most important difficulty to note for future users is please avoid route beyond Mehkar-Malegaon-Shelu Bazar-Karanja because the road is in extremely bad condition and full of multiple pot holes spread all across carriageway width. Further the road between Malegaon-Dongaon is only single lane while the second lane is dug up. Very long ques n both ways with users violating ques and jumping in and further complicating tight traffic position.
The single lane is also full of laid rubble without surface plained by roller. Protect your car from bumps and undercarriage damage.The stretch between Mehkar- Karanja is only 150 km but due to bad conditions it takes 3-4 hours.
We had reached Mehkar at 1100 hrs and were very happy to reach Nagpur say around 1600-1700 hrs. But all dreams collapsed due to this great bad road and we reached Nagpur at 1930 hrs.
The road beyond Karanja to Nagpur is very good. For the return trip we took Nagpur- Karanja- Mangrulpir-Washim-Risod route. The road between Karanja to Risod is newly laid 4 lane fully operational concrete route and absolutely free of traffic and trucks. We took Risod-Mehkar route and joined Jalna route.
The Risod -Mehkar route is only 35 km and , I recommend to take this route for onwards from Jalna to Nagpur via Risod-Washim-Mangrulpir-Karanja 4 lane wonderful concrete road. Infact we went to Lonar lake from Mehkar-Bibi-Lonar route which is again newlt laid 2 lane tar road. Again Lonar-Dusarbid-SindkhedRaja-Jalna rout is wondurful between Lonar and Dusarbid joining Jalna-Mehkar road at Dusarbid. Sindkhedraja-Dusarbid-Bibi-Sultanpur-Mehkar is again 4 lane busy road. So guys if planning to proceed to Nagpur detour at Mehkar via Risod-Washim-Mangrulpir-Karanja and again join at Karanja onwards to Nagpur.
The Lonar lake has no roads around it for good approach. No hotels and resting places. Be prepared with snacks and dry eatables and plenty of water. No toilets and very difficult for women.
The tourism and forest department have compounded the problem without providing adequate facilities to enable viwers from glimpses of this unique meteorite hit originated natural lake.
I am a senior citizen and all visitors above 60 are not allowed to enter the visiting areas. Its simply foolish idea.
We had to struggle to see the lake from a disused Forest rest house which has its main gate closed and only access point is jumping the broken barbed wire by earlier Users.no information boards, no tourists info. is available anywhere and you are alone to struggle.

Don't know about the opening of Samruddhi Mahamarg. In next week time, I will be leaving for Nagpur from Pune, So, any idea on the route Ahmednagar-Paithan-Ambad-Jalna bypass? While going from Pune to Nagpur, if you take this route it saves 10KM. But want to know the road condition; it should not be pathetic and should not take more time than that of usual route - Ahmednagar-Aurangabad-Jalna.

      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
