Hyderabad ORR toll system

ORR has tolls at all the entry and exit points. 

At the entrance you need to collect the ticket and payment will be made at the exit.

ORR started, multiple entry toll system.
Pay the toll at the exit(multiple entry) and you can use it multiple times.

Accidents:

Accidents are very prone to happen on all the roads across the world. No matter how sophisticated the system is built.

Hyderabad ORR is no exception.

 

Truck parked on the left lane + XUV driver slept while driving.

Few tips from my side:

 

  • Please do not cruise on Fast lane (right most), Use fast lane only to overtake and switch back to Lane-2.

     

  • Dividers are small, vehicles might jump into your lanes during high speed accidents, If you are in Lane-2 it will be an added advantage at least to some extent.

     

  • People often tend to get too relaxed on the ORR, specially after a long tiring drive. It leads to a loss in concentration and ultimately driver tends to sleep at the wheel. If you are sleepy avoid ORR at any cost.

     

  • Always check the tire pressure before hitting ORR, low tire pressure can lead to tire bursts.

     

  • Fog is high during winters, always slow down when the visibility is poor.

     

  • I have seen some trucks clogging fast lanes with speeds less than 40 km/hr. It will create issue during night driving, some of them will not even have a tail lamp/reflector. So, be cautious.

     

  • Some times municipality trucks water the plants on the fast lane without proper warning signs. Keep a close eye on them.

Quality is going down, specifically at some bridge joints.

Anyways this is best outer ring road in India.


Picture from our last drive.

I agree! Quality is down when compared to past 2 years. It became worst in the bridge joints as @gowtham said.

 

I do take my civic at 200+ kms in the joints. My soft suspension is saving me from the bumps. But thr are few bumps towards Patancheru exit and warangal exit.

 

They are super bumpy. Car ll fly literally from the road. But civic has super down force aero dynamics by default. Hence able to touch the tarmac just in a fraction of seconds. Otherwise airborne!

 

ORR is still the best road. But need some touch-up work to make it amazing.

Yup as @gowtham said quality is down.

 

Good thing is after demonetisation they are accepting VISA card payments and paper less transactions with no physical receipt at tolls, you will get a SMS from Eagle Infra with a link to e-receipt.

Traffic flow has increased a lot.
Compared to last few years.

They should implement fast-tag(RFID) or touch and go systems.

Gachibowli exit queue is getting more and more.

I guess they have a plan to implement Paytm like other GMR tolls did, but I am personally not comfortable with lowering window and scanning the QR code, I rather opt for paying with card / cash as any which ways I stopped my vehicle

Nice post with lot of information and good review though!

I agree to the point that there are lot of accidents on ORR. Especially to the people who travel early in the morning with high speed and also to those who Drives all the way through bumpy roads and once the tyre touches ORR, changes their driving mode to relaxed driving and falls asleep!!

I have been to movie towers and I say it's a very good spot for photo shoot and then hangout with friends in penalty box for a quick tea break!

Exactly the same thing I was telling to my wife last week.

Especially upto airport, roads are pretty uneven. Not recommend to push beyond 90-100  considering the traffic & unevenness of the road.

Agree on bumps.

This stretch is very highly used and oldest of all other sections.

Gachibowli to Mumbai highway is still better, less traffic and smooth.
People who are pushing their cars need to be careful on those bridge joints, some of them are very notorious, I can see skid marks after those bridges, indicating loosing control.

 

Did anyone try Ghatkesar to Shamirpet, It is the newest section.

Excellent point @gowtham I have always advised my friends this on ORR.

So many times without our mistake we might end up in tragic road accidents and such small things can make a difference between life and death / disability. 

 

Also very nice clicks and info.. will be of great help to all driving enthusiasts planning to visit our lovely city, Hyderabad.

      Hello all,
      This is my first post in the forum.
      As my status suggest, i'm newbie here☺️
      My profile;
      Total experience behind wheels: less than 1 year
      Total kms traveled: below 8k (with only 1 long drive ~1600kms i.e; Hyd-Pune-Mumbai-Aurangabad-Nanded-Hyd in Sep 2017)
      Car owned: Baleno petrol manual transmission.
      Travellers: Me, better half, 2 kids (10Y, and 5Y)
       
      Before posting as a new topic, i browsed all the topics for the topic to start.
      My intention is to take expert tips from all expert guys like you.
       
      Kindly bear with me if you find these queries childish, as i can't change stepney by myself!
       
      1. During ascending on ghat road (which i observed on Lonavala ghat road), i drive in 2nd gear. At the hair pin curve, applied full accelarotor, as i felt my vehicle may not move further. Scary experience. Is it normal?
      Somebody suggest me to use 1st gear for those ascending hair pin curve...
       
      2. I have read lot of experience of driving in Wayanad. With my above experience can I hit the road? Planning this October holidays after getting 3rd service done.
      My wife drive well if the roads are well mainatained like NH44. 
       
      3. Does Nitrogen gas really helps for better maintenance of the tyres?
       
      I will continue post my queries here in this forum, if i get some response as I believe in learning is continuous process until you die!
      Note: I start exploring the forum very recently. Had i read all the post before my unplanned tour to Mumbai, i would never taken the route of NH65 especially from Omerga to Sholapur😩.
       
      Thank you for your time and valuable inputs.
