Also any idea on -- good petrol pump around Temburni / Latur.

Post Tembhurni its Latur as I understand.
On Nh9 between Pune and Bhigwan, you will find many good restaurants particularly at Loni and Yavat. Post Bhigwan till Tembhurni, there is good restaurant just after Indapur byepass and toll plaza.

Don't take Barshi byepass while going toward Latur, you should go via Barshi town as that byepass is very bumpy stretch of 15 km road.

Same with Latur city, don't take any byepass and travel through the city.

Yes. Do not go for Nagar- Pathardi - Nanded route. Especially when you're starting at 11AM, it's gonna be dark when you be on this route. Even I've heard of the safety issues on this road.

Ashish,

If the choice is Nagar - Aurangabad route Vs Pune - Latur route, what would you suggest?

Regards,

Balpreet

Navi Mumbai - pune - tembhurni 4 lanes road. Tembhurni - kurduwadi- barshi town- Latur : good 2 lanes road except 2 km bad stretch between kurduwadi and barshi. Latur - ahmedpur - Nanded : good 2 laned road.

From Tembhurni to Latur : no good restaurants. At Latur, lot of good restaurants.

Ashish's information sounds pretty solid, also since he seems to be authority on Latur stretch

I would do the Pune-Indapur-Latur-Nanded route in this case.
Beware of Ganj Golai (Latur) though, don't get into it and don't get tangled into the market, but bypass it (right just before Ganj Golai) to keep on NH.

The Pune EWay, Superb NH9 upto Tembhurni will be fast drives.
However, you will need to beat the Pune traffic out through Camp to get onto NH9.


The news about NH222 not being safe is only good as far as night drives are concerned through those remote stretches. With late start from Mumbai, the night-time will be more towards Parbhani-Vasmat-Nanded which is safe than middle remote regions of Nagar-Pathardi-Majalgaon-Pathri.

I had more and enjoyable drives on this NH222, except for some stretches in-between which were not smooth but were under revamp last time I drove in Nov 2015. But, there were not many hotels too on this route in between except at towns. With revamp, maybe some may have sprouted on way. We generally pack food from home.

HI,

Thanks all for the inputs given. It helped me plan my trip.

A brief snapshot of the trip.

Onward Journey:

Navi Mumbai - Chakan - Ahmednagar - Aurangabad- Jalna - Parbhani - Basmt - Nanded

I left aroudn 11 AM from Navi Mumbai.

After Exit from Expressway before pune till the joining of 4 laned road to Ahmednagar --> Its a 2 laned regular road, passing from towns & industrial area, so avg speed is like a city road.

Once you join 4 Laned road, till half way between ahmednagar - Aurangabad, its good road.

Last part of road till Aurangabad, not so good. It took me time to cross Aurangabad in Evening.

Then till Jalna, its decent 4 laned, with regular traffic. After Jalna it was a 4 Laned road ( not in good shape though) for 30-40 km ( if I remember correctly)
After that it was a 2 laned ( again not in good shape, lot of pot holes)
Post Parbhani till Basmat, again bad 2 laned road.

Basmat - Nanded, some stretches were horrible, other was just OK.

In all it took me 12 Hours for 600 KM. With 3 breaks ( total an hour 45 min of break in total)

I then travelled from Nanded to Bidar ( This road good till it was 4 laned) After some stretch in MH as well as in KA were horrible.

Return

Bidar - Latur - Tembhurni - Pune - Navi Mumbai.

Bidar - Latur 150 odd km nothing great to talk about. Just manageable overall. Very bad patches and some good patches. This took me around 3hr 15 min.

Latur - Tembhurni --> 2 Laned mixed bag. Again, some stretches were horrible. Very few sections are good. I had better expectations.

Tembhurni -- Pune --> Great roads 4 laned expressway as its called. I didnt mind paying Rs 130 toll for this 110-120 km plus section. Last 30 odd km touching Pune, regular 4 laned ( not expressway kind) had a lot of city traffic.
Yesterday ( 9th Oct) there was a lot of rain and hence water logging on roads, so that took time.

Expressway was smooth as always.

Regards,

Balpreet

Balpreet, now that you've covered both the routes, which one would you suggest in case I plan a trip to Nanded?
The Jalna route or the Tembhurni-Latur route?

Thanks!

I didnt do the Latur Nanded route. Assuming its same as Tembhurni- Latur, I will vote for Aurangabad -Jalna route. Coz its 4 lane till some km beyond Jalna. Hence lesser KM of 2 Laned road to be travelled.

Regards,
Balpreet
