I regularly commute on Hyderabad to Vijawayada highway, almost once in a month from the past 10 years.
Hyderabad to Vijayawada distance :275 kilometers
It is a single lane road, not enough to fit 3 vehicles at a time. It used take me 7 hours to travel from Hyderabad to Vijayawada. Blind curves. Highest accident ever occurred in the country. One of the busiest, mostly filled with trucks. Worst road condition, filled with unlimited potholes. Driving at night is a suicide.(zero visibility with those high beams) Some overtakes used to take me at least 15 minutes, Imagine 10 trucks trailing each other with no space between them, on a single lane! No proper hotels and washroom Worst fuel quality But I used to enjoy the drive, it is challenging and fun.
Year :2017(after a decade)
Now it has a 4-lane road, truck lay by lanes, emergency lanes and bridges across villages. It is taking me 4 hours from Hyderabad to Vijayawada. I am saving 3 hours. Many good hotels available, no issues with washrooms. Toll road, with road assistance and standby ambulance for safety. Continues patrol across the highway, last year a huge industrial truck was stuck on highway while taking u-turn. Patrol guys arrived within 15 minutes and took the situation under control.
Hotels between Hyderabad to Vijayawada
1. Village Aharam : Malkapur
First decent hotel on the highway
2. Highway 9 Restaurant : Nalgonda
Good for break fast
3. Hotel Vivera : Nalgonda

5. Hotel 7 : suryapet

6. Numerous hotel in Suryapet.

7. G-hotel : Suryapet
8.Once you cross Suryapet, you won't find any proper hotels, though you can find many road side dhabas.
Please correct If i miss anything.
You can find then in every 20 kilometers radius.
It is a complete toll road, elevated 4-lane, on an average you pay around 1 rupee per kilometre, so it should be under 250/-

I am travelling from Hyderabad to Vizag in December.
So I just had a few queries.
We will be leaving Hyderabad at around 2 pm and we are planning to stop in Vijayawada.
I just wanted to know the road conditions and where to stay in Vijayawada(should be on or near the highway).
What is the distance and how much time will it take?
Hello India-Drive men.
I'm back after a long time with a new post on HAZARD LAMPS. This is a discussion post on the uses of a HAZARD LAMPA in India.
Please do share your views on the post.
Almost every car and now a days few bikes in India are coming equipped with a HAZARD LAMP but people very rarely use that.
Few people doesn't even know what that switch with a RED TRIANGLE mark is😂
While there are few people who use it, few in a proper way few always use it.
Here are my views on the uses of HAZARD LAMPS and how I use it.
> While entering a TUNNEL/DARK area where the visibility is low or zero.
> While it's RAINING heavily as the visibility is low.
> While REVERSING our vehicle .
> While going in SMOKY/FOGY area where the visibility is low.
> When suddenly BRAKING/CHANGING LANES on a highway.
> When using a WRONG LANE/OPPOSITE LANE.
> When the vehicle comes to halt.
> When OVERTAKING In a two laned road.
Here are few instances where I use my HAZARD LAMPS.
Questions and doubts i have on HAZARD LAMPS:
Recently I read an article in CarToq where they mentioned "HAZARD LAMPS should only be used when the vehicle comes to HALT"
The name it self suggests that they should be used in a DANGEROUS situation. So why only use it when the vehicle comes to halt?
please feel free to discuss on the topic and share your views.
also share in your social networks. Let's educate people and avoid accidents.
