There are multiple route to Shiridi.
Would suggest you take following route

 

Hyderabad > Zaheerabad > Naldurg > Tuljapur > Bhoom > Ahmednagar > Shiridi

Hyderabad to Naldurg is excellent 4-lane section

Naldurg to Ahmednagar is single lane

Ahmednagar to Shiridi is 4-lane section

 

Roads between Naldurg to Ahmednagar is not so great. 
Plan to start very early in the morning. So that you can reach your destination by evening. 
Since first section is 4-lane, you can cover good amount of distance early in the morning.

I do this trip at least once in a year and taken up most of the available routes in all these years. Now from past few years I am taking up following route:

 

Hyderabad -> Zaheerabad -> Solapur (Take Bypass) -> Mohol->Tembhurni (from here take right turn towards Karmala) -> Karmala -> Ahmednagar -> Ghodeygaon -> Shani Singnapur -> Shirdi 

 

We start from Hyderabad (KPHB) around 4 AM and reach Shirdi by evening 6 PM. We stop at Shani Signapur for darshan while going and it takes around 1 hr in total, other than that almost 1.5 hours break for breakfast and lunch.

 

Road Conditions:

Hyderabad to Solapur: Out of ~290 KM's last 90 KM's towards Solapur is not in good shape

Solapur Bypass to Tembhurni: Excellent 4/6 lane road

Tembhurni to Karmala: Good roads 

Karmala to Ahmed Nagar: Good roads

 

as advised even in previous thread, please start as early as you can.

 

Another Important Point: If you reach Shirdi by 6 PM then check-in to a Hotel, fresh-up and then go for Darshan around 08:30pm/9pm, trust me you don't need any special passes for darshan during this time, we do this all the times and come out of the temple within 30 mins after Darshan. Most buses reaches there early morning and that when it becomes crowded and takes hours to get darshan.

 

Hope this helps, update this thread once you are back from your trip.

As per the recent update we received, about 50 to 60 kms of work is still pending which is running at a very slow pace. 

Do share your latest feedback on the recent road status of this road. 

Thanks in advance :)

Hi all

 

Just came from shirdi, yesterday night. I have to say the stretch up to Tuljapur turn, was excelleNt barring few stretches from him nabad yo Tuljapur as construction of four lane is in full swing.

 

But after that the road conditions have to say below average as there are many potholes, and it will definitely drains ones energy like anything. This stretch is almost 140km which is just not alright.

 

On my way back decided to avoid this hence took bit of longer route via pune and it's just awesome. From solapur to humnabad the construction of 4 lane is in full swing and it's in patches and the service road ghat has been laid is above average. Ic one doesn't mind driving an addl. 140kms then I suggest to ho this route. As I don't see anywhere near future the stretch of Tuljapur to Shirdi will be a 4 lane forget that even a proper two lane highway (with enough room for vehicles to ply ). If the potholes are sorted then definitely one can enjoy this route.

Road from Hyderabad to Goa and Shiridi are very complicated and messy.

Tuljapur to Beed is excellent ......You will enjoy like driving from Hyderbad to Bangalore..... After BEED ...around 20km is still good towards aurangabad where I used to take a left turn towards MIRI-PATHARDI to Shirdi.  Thereafter I am not sure how the road is up to AURANGABAD.

 

For sure avoid AURANGABAD to SHIRDI ...It will be nightmare....However the road construction is going on ..So we can expect this stretch to be perfect in coming years.

Hi All 

One Of my Friend did Hyderabad - Tulzapur & While Return he did via Sholapur Akkalkot and Gulbarga Hyderabad   over weekend June 8th and 9th 2019

Here is the update 

Hyderabad to Tulzapur Road condition update: 

  •  Road is Excellent till Omerga(MH border) - Many diversions till Naldurg... as usual road still needs to be improved
  •  Naldurg  to   Tulzapur route is good.
  •  Tulzapur to solapur is Excellent
  •  Solapur to Akkalkot- many diversions and potholes 
  •  Akkalkot to Gulbarga.. road is Excellent  did a detour and visited Ghangapur Sri kshetra 
  •  Gulbarga to Hyderabad via Humnabad is awesome

-- While Going Stopped at GuruDeep Dhaba Before Basavakalyan  Near  By Engineering College

https://goo.gl/maps/LjbFkjZdAdkhbrXs7 

 

Food is Good But Ambience is minimal as it is very popular for the students of the engineering college But Dhaba owner is very friendly.

Food Options are Very less to No for Sholapur - Akkalkot - Gulbarga route

This info is written on August 17th 2019.

We started to Shirdi from Hyderabad at night 8:30 from Kukatpally. There are multiple routes for going to Shirdi:

 

1) Hyderabad -> Naldurg -> Tuljapur -> Beed(you will take a bypass before going to Beed) -> Ahmednagar -> Shirdi

2) Hyderabad -> Naldurg -> Solapur -> Ahmednagar -> Shirdi

3) Hyderabad -> Naldurg -> Solapur -> Pune -> Shirdi ---------------- This route is long and adds another 200kms approx

 

We thought of taking the first route as everyone said it is safe with less traffic.

 

We doesn't want to experiment here, so took the first route. As everyone said, the road condition is excellent (you have speed-breakers at some places) till 20kms before to Omerga. Before 20kms the toll road ends and then immediately the worst road starts.

 

You can manage till Omerga but after that at night time finding the potholes in that road is too difficult.

From Omerga to Naldurg it is 40 kms. The road here is below average. Take right near Naldurg junction to Tuljapur which is 33kms.

 

The first 10kms and the last 10 kms from Naldurg to Tuljapur is excellent. The middle 13 kms is patchy road with speed breakers. I suggest you don't cross 60km/h speed there.

 

From Tuljapur we took a road to Beed which is 4lane road and is awesome. Till Tuljapur the road gets swapped between 2 lanes and single lane, please be careful as there will be no boards or indications that 2 lane or single lane road starts.

 

From Tuljapur to Beed you have a 4 Lane road and is awesome. Near to Beed, Google maps gives you a left diversion and you will get into a State Highway road to Ahmednagar. This road is the worst among the entire journey.

 

All Shirdi buses take this route and as the suspension system for buses is better than cars they travel at 80km/h speed.

 

But cars can go at 40km/h speed with too difficulty. Travelling 50kms at 40km/h speed is too hectic. After you cross the 50kms the road is good till Ahmednagar. From Ahmednagar to Shirdi it is 4 lane road and is 90% good. We reached Shirdi by 10:30 am.

 

Return Journey:

--------------------------------

 

On our way to Hyderabad, we were scared about that 50kms State Highway road as it gives you hectic,irritation in the driving.

We took the following road which is awesome. We started in the morning 7:30 Am from Shirdi.

 

1) Keep directions to Shirdi -> Ahmednagar. (State Highway 2 lane road but excellent)

2) Ahmednagar -> Beed (Excellent 4 lane road. ) Before approx 20kms to Beed, google maps tells you to take a right diversion on to a small road where it is too difficult for a car to fit. Please avoid this and go further 5 kms. You will find a flyover where you can take right diversion to Beed. From here also the road is awesome to Beed.

3) Keep directions in google maps from  Beed -> Tuljapur. (This road is excellent 4 lane road). Before 30kms to Tuljapur you have get into a state high road. Don't go to Solapur, as from solapur to Naldurg it is 90kms which is bad. You have to get down from the National Highway towards Tuljapur. The same thing repeats from here. 

4) Go to Tuljapur -> Naldurg -> Omerga -> Sangareddy -> Hyderabad. We reached Patancheru by 6:00 pm and by Kukatpally it 7:00 pm. Which is exactly 12 hrs with 2hrs halt in the middle here and there. So in around 10hrs we reached Hyderabad in this route. The one which we took when going to Shirdi took around 14.5 hrs which is too much hectic. That too without a halt.

 

NOTE :

1) Please don't keep direct directions from Shirdi to Hyderabad. Follow the above process. Keep the directions step by step like

   a) Shirdi -> Ahmednagar

   b) Ahmednagar -> Beed

   c) Beed -> Tuljapur (Don't go to solapur)

   d) Tuljapur -> Naldurg (This road is bad for around 15 kms)

   e) Naldurg -> Hyderabad (First 40kms is bad towards Hyderabad and remaining is awesome)

2) FOLLOW THE FIRST NOTE POINT ROAD TOWARDS SHIRDI. DON'T GO AS PER GOOGLE MAPS. JUST KEEP THE DIRECTIONS LIKE:

    a) Hyderabad -> Naldurg

    b) Naldurg -> Tuljapur

    c) Tuljapur -> Beed (Go upto beed. Don't take any diversions at the middle)

    d) Beed -> Ahmednagar

    e) Ahmednagar -> Shirdi.

3) FOLLOW ABOVE BOTH ROUTES AND YOUR JOURNEY WILL BE AWESOME.THERE ARE SOME PLACES WHERE I CAN GO AT 160KM/H IN THESE ROUTES.

4) This is my personal suggestion. We went in a Sedan (Hyundai Verna) which is our new car. As the ground clearance for a sedan is less we have to get down to very low speed to avoid patchy and potholes on the road. Driving a compact SUV or full SUV will help much.

5) The traffic is too less on the roads, you will hardly find cars/buses on the roads.

6) Try to travel in the morning so that you can find speed breakers or patchy roads from Omerga -> Tuljapur easily.

7) Google maps helped us a lot in detecting a speed breaker. On the route map at some point of places, it has shown yellow patches or red marks indicating that the people are getting slowed down on the routes. And those yellow patches on the google maps route are the speed breakers and red patches are the roads where you have the worst road condition. This is super convenient to the drivers. Thanks to google.

 

All the best guys. Have a safe journey.
