Hyderabad to Tirupati and kalahasti Road Condtion and Route updates

Recommended Posts

Recently I did Hyd -> Tirupati.

 

Current best route is NAM Express way (eyes closed).

Around 1-2 kms repair work in NAM express way.

NH16 is ok from Ongole to Nellore due to road widening and be careful

 

Hyderabad -> Nalgonda -> Miryalaguda -> Ongole -> Nellore -> Nayudupeta -> Srikalahasti -> Tiruapti

 

If you have Srikalahasti in your list, it's bonus.

Thanks for the note is the NAM expressway a SH or NH or actually an Expressway.
Does this route have speed breakers all through?

It is a National highway, 4-lane and toll road.

Narketpally to Medarametla, you can happily avoid Vijayawada which is totally a mess.

Very less near few diversions but nothing alarming.
It took me 2:30 minutes to cover 215 kilometers, You can comfortably cruise at 110 km/hr.

We need to keep an eye on sharp curves, cattle and Villages.

Planning to go to Tirupati from Miyapur. Can any one suggest which route would be the best.

 

1) is it via Nalgonda - Nellore- Ongole -Naidupet -Tirupati?

2) is it via Kurnool _Nandyal -Kadapa  - Tirupati?

Both roads are good.

Take Nalgonda route, it is little better than Kurnool route.

Kurnool route is shorter by around 20 kilometers.

Take Nalgonda route.

Did a quick drive from Hyderabad to Tirupati.
Roads are good through out the drive. 

We took NAM expressway. 

Hyderabad -> Nalgonda -> Miryalaguda -> Ongole -> Nellore -> Nayudupeta -> Srikalahasti -> Tiruapti

Tirupati to Tirumala ghat section is excellent. 

  • Ghat section is closed between 12AM to 2AM both the routes.
  • Ghat section now has a speed limit based on time. Alipiri to Tirumala time should be above 25 minutes.
  • In Alipiri before entring the ghat section, one need to go through vehicle/luggage/human scanner 
  • Tirumala to Alipiri should be above 40 minutes
  • Route from Alipiri to Triumala (newly laid)is excellent, compared to route from Tirumala to Alipiri.
  • Both the routes are one way, token is issued at the entrance and will be scanned towards the end.

Thanks for the valuable information @Ranger. Could you throw more light on this..? are we going to be issued a ticket if our drive time takes lesser than the prescribed time between these sections?
