Dear Friends ,
I just newly joined this forum and glad to see so many feedbacks on different routes.
I also drive a lot especially long drives and would like to contribute in this forum for benifit of other friends.
I am fond of long drives and in last 5 years did almost 20 times from Hyderabad to Bangalore, also Mumbai and Chennai.
I have done a complete south india trip covering MADURAI,RAMESWARAM,KANYAKUMARI and back to Hyderabad. Recently in SEP-2017, I did HYDERABAD-OMKARESWAR-UJJAIN (MAHAKALESWAR)-SHIRDI-HYDERABAD.
There are hundreds of other smaller trips around HYDERABAD city (HYD). So I think I can do some useful contribution to this forum.
I am planning for a trip from Hyderabad to Shirdi next week.
I usually travel to Shirdi once/twice a year and every time I take the route following route.
While return I take the following route
However during my recent trip to OMKARESWAR from HYDERABAD , I found that the route after NIZAMABAD has deteriorated a lot and in very bad shape. So this time I will surely not take this route .
From some of the post I see the alternate route is
So I need your suggestion if I take
I know the route till HYDERABAD to OMERGA is excellent .
From OMERGA till SOLAPUR is patchy (old mumbai highway) .
From SOLAPUR to Tembhurni it is again 4 lane excellent highway .
However from Tembhurni to Ahemednagar it was below average and Ahemednagar to Shirdi it was above average.
I am talking this road condition as per my trip during SEP-2017 (OMKARESWAR TRIP). Does this route condition especially TEMBHURNI to AHEMEDNAGAR improves ?
How about the road condition from NALDURG-OSMANABAD-YEDASHI-BHOOM ?
