Is it that the roads are bad and poorly lit (which is fairly true), or did you get robbed or something?

Old post but I used to live in Bidar years back and still go back there occasionally.

This road - well, till Zaheerabad it is the Hyd - Mumbai highway. From there to Bidar it is a fairly winding two lane highway that passes through a bunch of sugar factories. The stink of molasses will almost knock you out .. not to mention all the sugarcane laden tractors you find hogging the road.

Bidar onwards the road is nothing too much to write home about till you get closer to ahmednagar.

Default re: Hyderabad - Shirdi : Route Queries

Guys, a colleague of mine is planning a road trip to Shirdi shortly from Hyderabad. Which of the below would be the best route, given the road widening work near Humnabad and Karmala:
  1. Hyderabad -> Humnabad -> Solapur -> Tembhurni -> Karmala -> Nagar -<Shirdi
  2. Hyderabad -> Nizamabad -> Nanded -> Ahmednagar -> Shirdi
  3. Hyderabad -> Bidar -> Ahmednagar -> Shirdi

In case route 2 or 3 are considered better, need detailed route map from Nanded or Bidar to Ahmednagar please.

Nanded to Ahmednagar is pretty much straight-forward. NH222 all the way. I am only answering the query about the detailed route map part and not the main question.

Dear Members,

I have a query regarding condition of NH 222 from Kalyan to Ahmednagar.
Has anyone used it, since it is easy and shortest for people returning from Shani Shingnapur to Mumbai.

Thank you for feedback.

Using a Santro and travelling with Kids. Will mostly be doing the same routes.

However does anyone have update on the Omerga - Tuljapur - Barshi - Nagar roads? One of my colleague said roads were good. Its almost a month now that he travelled.

Thank you

That area seems to be getting a lot of love from the authorities.

I drove down pune to shirdi over this weekend. The pune - ahmednagar road is quite well patched up and silky smooth, and then the minefield that used to be the Ahmednagar bypass has been very well laid now.

Hello All

Back from Hyderabad - Shirdi trip. Below are few points from me.

Onward Route - Hyderabad - Sholapur - Nagar - Shingnapur - Shiridi.

Travel Time - 14 hrs Including Breaks - 30 Mins (Break Fast) - 45 Mins - (Lunch)

Roads

Hyderabad to Sholapur - Roads with path holes and patch work being done all along.
Sholapur to Tembruni - Fantastic roads.
Tembruni to nagar - Good roads with few streatchs of bad patches for few kms.
Nagar - Shinganapur - Fantastic Road
Shinganapur - Shirdi - Good Roads with very few bad patches.

Good Food options all along this route. Major food court - Vittal Kamath. Good food and neat place. Available for every 100 - 150 kms after Sholpaur until shirdi. And Truck traffic will accompany us all along this route.

Return Route - Shirdi - Aurangabad - Jalna - Jitthur - Nanded - Nizamabad - Hyderabad.

Travel Time - 12 Hrs Including Breaks - 45 Mins (Break Fast) at Jalna

Roads

Shirdi to Aurangabad - Very bad patches in stretches. Overall ok roads.
Aurangabad to Jalna to Jittur - Very Good Roads, However Very bad patch in Jalna town, And 30 Kms before reaching Jittur have very bad patches.
Jittur to Nanded to Nizamabad (Via - Bodhan) - Very Good Roads overall. Bad patches at Bodhan town for about 20 kms.
Nizamabad To Hyderabad - Fantastic 4 lane road (2 Toll - both included approx 200rs).

Good to cover some ground while returning from shirdi. However no decent food options on this stretch until we reach Nizamabad. Only options we found are fruits to be safe from food allergies.

Cops at Jittur and Nanded on the lookout for other state vehicles for a customary check.


Cheers.

We did the following route on April 29 2016.
Hyderabad - Shirdi - Pune - Hyderabad.



With the road conditions improved between Zaheerabad and Sholapur (update below), may be this is a better way to take to save time and distance as well. The below route should be avoiding the pathetic road conditions between Temburni and Ahmednagar, however I do not have any first hand information on the road condition between Daund & Ahmednagar.







Complete trip details can be found in Post # 94, Page 7 (May 2 2016) in my ownership thread.

For those who are planning to go to Shirdi NOT by drive, here is another convenient alternative.

There is a direct flight from Hyderabad to Aurangabad by TruJet Airlines. I believe this is owned by Chiranjeevi (the telugu megastar) family and so they offer discounts to movie industry people. Timings : Dep Hyd 11:30AM and Arrival 12:45PM

Most convenient is the FREE shuttle bus from Aurangabad to Shirdi provided by Trujet Airlines. Though the bus is Air-conditioned, it is an oldish one and the road is rough in many patches - so expect the drive to be a bit rough. The drive took about 3 hours + almost an hour stopover for lunch. The bus started from Aurangabad airport at 13:30 and reached Shirdi at 17:30. To avail the free shuttle bus, one needs to inform the check-in counter at Hyderabad airport who will stamp the boarding pass accordingly.

Since we pre-booked VIP darshan online, we had comfortable darshan the same evening. If planed well, the evening Arati can also be attended.

One can have an early morning darshan the next day also and start back to Aurangabad in the FREE shuttle bus around 8:00 AM. The return flight is at 13:30 reaching Hyderabad at 14:50.

The bus stops and starts from Shirdi from SaiSangam hotel. If the stay is also at the same hotel, then it is super convenient. I stayed at a different hotel as I was not aware of this. The hotel provides free drop and pick up from hotel to Sai temple.

For more information, contact TruJet.

What is the latest update on the Hyderabad - Shirdi route?

A friend is planning to go sometime next week and any update on the usual route would be very helpful.

The roads upto zaheerabad are decent and after that you're on various rural Karnataka and Rita Maharashtra state highways that have never been in good repair over decades. Fly to Pune and rent a car there.

Flying is not an option as they have some other plans too after reaching Shirdi. Anyway thanks hserus. Hopefully someone might have used this road to give an update.
