I'm planning a similar trip from Ahmedabad to Cuttack in 2 days. Below is the detailed plan.

Day 1
Ahmedabad - Surat - Jalgaon - Akola - Amravati - Nagpur (Approximately 1000 kms)
Night Halt at Nagpur
Day 2
Nagpur - Raipur - Sambalpur - Angul - Cuttack (Approximately 870 kms)

Want to know about the Road conditions all through. I'm not worried till Nagpur. The real concern is the Drive from Raipur to Sambalpur. Had traveled this route via Bus in Dec 2011 and it was horrible. My back still hurts due to that ride.

Please update me on the latest about the Road Conditions all through and any alternate routes which can be faster and less traffic.
Beyond Raipur road is bad till the OR border

No, it can manage it, mostly issues of road diversion & rough roads

Hi Columbus,

Raipur - Sambalpur still remains a concern. That stretch is still pretty rough, as its under construction.
However, you can do a diversion. After Arang, take the right to Mahasamund.
This is a 2 lane road but in its prime, as it is newly constructed.
Keep to this road till Nuapada. The straight road goes upto Gopalpur near Brahmapur in Odisha. Gopalpur is at the coast.
Keep a watch for Nuapada.
From Nuapada you can take a left towards Bargarh. Keep a watch for sign boards of Paikamal, Padmapur and Sohela.
Follow this road till Sohela. It is a 2 lane road, however in good condition.
Watch out for narrow stretches, sometimes the road becomes really narrow. You might have to drive off road to let a bus or truck pass.
However, that would be seldom as the traffic is minimal on this stretch.
Once you reach Sohela, you'll have a sigh of relief.
Once again you will be on a 4 lane NH, take the right from Sohela towards Bargarh all the way to Sambalpur.
Exiting Sambalpur is tricky, you might have to ask your way around. There is a right which goes to Cuttack.
The Sambalpur - Cuttack stretch is good. Apprx 280 kms. It is a 2 lane road, however in good condition. The terrain is rocky so be alert for sharp turns sloping up or down.
When you exit this road, you will be on the Kolkata - Chennai NH Quadrilateral.
Take the right towards Bhubaneshwar and follow the signs to Puri.
I hope this was helpful.
For the next question.
Nagpur - Puri can be done in a day, depends on when you start from Nagpur.
If you start really early like 4:00AM, then you can be in Puri by 8:00PM including halts for lunch and periodic halts in between for fuel and refreshments.
Thanks
