I think Dhanasekaran mentioned somewhere, we need not take any diversion to Piduguralla, I am trying to search that and also the map in mapmyindia. Will keep updated. I am leaving on Wed early hours towards hyd.

The guys in news channels are probably making too much noise, bandh in hyd is not even implemented and all offices are working.

Hyderabad to Sagar is good even upto Macherla it is fine.From Macherla Karempudi it is single road and through lot of villages advisible to travel only in day time and you reach somewhere about 16kms after Piduguralla.Last time I did this route towards Addanki I felt I could not save much time.I thought even through Narketpalli Piduguralla Addanki was better.This was about 6months back I do not know the road conditions now.

I took Route via Pidugurala.
Would not advise night driving on this route. No signboards and some unexpected pot holes in the road.

Did this route a couple of weeks back: Ibramhimpatnam -Nagarjuna sagar - Macherla, Pidugurlla, Narsaraopet, Chilakaluripet , Ongole -Chennai.

Road is no so good but quite fast . No major road upheaveals.

Food breaks : enroute are some old Reliance A1's renamed which are good but only a couple. At 280Km from Chennai near Ongole are some local ladies from the village making Lovely Dosas., Idly;s etc Egg Dosa Too!! Certainly worth looking out for.

Intend to take the Ongole-Piduguralla-Narkatpalli-Miryalaguda-Hyd for tomorrow's drive. If this is bad, will need to change while returning.

A small correction----Narketpalli comes after Miryalguda in your post above.

All the best and please do update us. For all that we know the stretch from Addanki to Piduguralla was always full of rim-breakers, so drive slow on that stretch.

Hi All,

just came back from hyderabad.

While going from Chennai to Hyderabad - tool the Ongole-Addanki-Piduguralla-Miryalguda-Narketpalli-Hyd Route. This one is really bad.

I will not suggest the above in any conditions, we went from chennai to Ongole in 3.5 hours and from there to cover the next 350 kms, it took 6.5 hours & we didnt enjoy any moment.

While returning - we came through - Hyd-Sagar Road-Ibrahimpatnam-N.Sagar-Macherla-Left to karempudi-Nakirikallu-Narsaraopet-chilakuluripet-Chennai - This one is superb, except for 3-4 kms of slow drive at narsaraopet.

Since we both couldnt sleep the whole night, our driving time was 10 hours and we took rest of 2 hours total - 12 hours.

Came back yesterday evening from my Hyd-Chennai-Pondi trip.

Took the Hyd-Sagar-Macherla-Karempudi-Addanki-Chennai route both while going and on the return.

Started from Hyd at 04:00 and was in Chennai at 12:30.
Driving time: 07:45.
Distance : 656 kms.

On return started at 11:30 from Chennai and was at home at 21:00.

Hyd-Sagar-Macherla-Karempudi is very fast with near zero traffic, especially during early morning. Karempudi-Addanki was mostly ok barring a few really bad stretches. However, need to watch out for the rim breakers.

Onward, was able to reach NH5 in 4.25 hours (320 kms) and another 3.5 hours for Chennai (336 kms).

While returning back to Hyd, faced lot of traffic between Addanki and Karempudi which meant that it took 5.5 hours to reach Hyd from the NH5 exit at Addanki.

You seem to have kept up an average speed of almost 85 kmph over 7.45 hours. Had someone to share the driving with you or were you the only one?

About 6 months back I had driven to Chennai the same route via Hyd-Sagar-Macherla-Karempudi- Addanki it took about 5.30hrs as we started in the afternoon.From Addanki to Chennai 4hrs.So average running would be around 9-10hrs depending on the traffic.
