Default Lucknow to Mumbai via Indore

Hi All
After my tour in 2009 (which was largely guided by hvkumar & longdrive lover), i am again gearing up for a trip to Mumbai and further down to Mangalore. Can you guide me on the current situation of the SHivpuri-Indore-Nashik section?? and also has the stretch from Nagpur-Lakhnadon-Sagar-Jhansi improved??
Regards

Shivpuri-Indore-Nashik:

Continues to be 2-laned from Shivpuri till Dewas. Roads will crack up once the rains start.
From Dewas to MP border it is fantastic 4-laned road, bypassing Indore.
MP-MH border is in a mess with chronic traffic jams.
Road widening from MH border all the way to Dhulia, not in good shape.
Lovely 4-laned road from Dhulia till about 20 kms before Nashik.
Road widening causes disruptions in the last few kms into Nashik.

Nagpur-Laknadon-Sagar-Jhansi:

Road widening from Nagpur towards Kamptee.
Conventional 2-laned roads through Pench WLS till some distancve before Seoni.
4-laned lovely roads to Laknadon.
4-laning almost complete between Laknadon & Sagar va Narasinghpur, with diversions in some places and work in progress.
Roads bad between Lalitpur and Jhansi.

Alternative:
Shivpuri-Kota-Chittorgarh-Udaipur-Bombay
or
Shivpuri-Kota-Chittorgarh-Neemuch-Ratlam-Indore

Which will be the best bet for Lucknow to Mumbai/Pune these days, provided one has got two full days' time at disposal, and avoiding late-night drive?

Apologies for citing from an old post. Any update on the Lucknow - Indore - Mumbai route sir? Which will be the best and fast one for a two-day dawn to dusk drive?

And mods, this has become a back to back post. Could you merge them?
Vip.

In my opinion, the ideal and most comfortable route, though not the shortest would be:

Lucknow-Agra-Bharatpur-Chaksu-Chittorgarh-Ratlam-Dhule-Malegaon.

After Malegaon, you can turn toward Pune or continue onwards to Nashik for Mumbai.

This route has fantastic roads starting with Lucknow-Agra expressway. You can have an overnight stay at Chittorgarh/Ratlam. The entire road is 4 laned except for roughly 70-80 km between Deoli and Chittorgarh and even that is of good quality, with low traffic.
