Update: Durg to Jamshedpur - Just completed my trip from Durg to Jamshedpur. Route taken - Durg ->Raipur->Maha Samundh-> Saraipalli->Sambalpur->Doegarh->KanjiPani-> Koenjhar->Rimuli->Chaibasa->Sariakela->Jamshedpur.

Road Conditions :
Durg->Sambalpur - 4 Lane, great roads( very small stretch of around 1-1.5 km is 2 Lane, some constructions going on).
Sambalpur->Koenjhar - 2 Lane roads, mostly good. Little bit of bumps here and there. All forest and Ghat sections here. So, better to cover this during day.
Koenjhar->Jamshedpur-4 Lane road construction going on between Koenjhar and Rimuli.So couple of places you need to get down and go in Katchha road. Else its good.After Rimuli to Jamshespur -2 Lane, but great road.
Total Time - Around 11 hrs.

How is the road condition between Raipur and Sambalpur (NH53/AH46)?
Anyone traveled recently on this patch?
How much time it should take to cover this patch?

I did the journey in March. 2-3 places, new road, bridge construction is going on, so its just single lane there, but in good condition. Rest its all good 4 lane. It should take you around 4.5 hrs to cover Raipur-Sambalpur.

An update on Calcutta-Keonjhar section which I did last week. It's almost entirely 4-laned now if you go via Panikoli and avoid going the Jamshola/Bahragora route. Panikoli to Keonjhar - NH 20 - 4-laning is almost complete. Even if you are forced to take a diversion to the wrong side, since there is hardly any traffic you can easily hit a very high speed. It took me about 7 hours including breaks. Via the old route is now taking more than 12 hours, if you drive non-stop.

Are 1000cc cars robust enough for performing these 2000 kilometer journeys in 3 days (and then coming back after a week)? If yes, how much should be the stopping intervals (kilometer wise) and what is the best speed to cruise along in these small cars on highways for long journeys?

The question comes from an excited soul who runs a recently acquired similar engine (<8K on Odo)

This is perhaps a wrong thread/section to ask this question. But the short answer is yes. But unless you are familiar with your car I wouldn't advice a multi-day, long, road trip as your first long drive. Go on a few - or at least one - short distance ones like Shantiniketan or Puri. You will know the answer yourself. Also there are many travelogues here written by people who have driven to various places in their small car. So that's not a limiting factor.

Exclamation Re: Mumbai - Kolkata : Route Queries

Pune / Mumbai to Kolkata is a very popular stretch amongst the road-travelers. But what I found missing in this thread is a discussion on the popular and safe place for night stay. Though we can start a new thread for this, but to maintain the relation, please share your thoughts in this particular thread.
  • Which hotel's service had you availed for you or family while travelling from Mumbai / Pune to Kolkata and back?
  • Does it have a provision of car parking?
  • Do you happen to remember the direction or any other means to get in touch with them?
  • How were the rates and amenities?
