Yes, I took the redhills route for the bypass. Didn't face much traffic on this route. It was around 40Kms and it took around 35-40mins. I think we paid couple of tolls. However traffic was there near vandalur which took some time. I think this traffic was due to a temple on the road side and most of the vehicles stops here for a quick pooja. It took may be around 20mins to cross this place.

Traveled to Chennai 2 days back.

Hyderabad-ORR-Narketpalli.
Four laned roads after ORR to Narketpalli.

Narketpalli-Addanki.

Narketpally to Nalgonda
No diversions and bliss to drive.

Nalgonda-Miryalguda

2 villages where the road narrows down to dual carriage way.

Miryalguda-Pidugurala

Dachepalle and Pidgurala no bypasses.
3-4 villages again the road becomes dual carriage way.

All these are manageble except for the small town traffic.

Pidugurala-Medarametla

Excellent four lane. No bypass to Addanki town.
The lost time between Nalgonda to Piduguralla can be made here in this stretch.

Medatmetla-Nellore.

Six laning in progress lots of diversions but manageble.

Nellore- Chennai.

Nellore-Tada

Excellent four lane.

Tada- Redhills.

Six lane work is going on and three flyover work is in progress and the service
roads are in bad shape with craters and pot holes.

Thanks for the detailed observation. How much time did it take for you to reach Chennai? Any updates on food joints?

I always take this bypass to reach East Tambaram. The stretch is close to 30kms and I always finished in less than 35 to 40 Mins.

I recently did this route on 22nd Dec with an 8 month old Infant, 2 senior citizens and my better half. It took nearly 10.5 hours, with 6 breaks including lunch. Started at 8.40am from Chaitanyapuri, Hyderabad and reached home in East Tambaram, Chennai by 7:00pm.

Total Toll: INR 560/-

P.S: We were forced to have lunch at Highway or High 5 Dhaba as we started late.
Service is pretty bad. So is food quality. Will not suggest this to any one.
Luckily, we packed our son's food. So no issues for him.
Else we planned to have lunch at Amaravati near Ongole.

Regards,
Maverick79.

Never did by road from Coimbatore to VIJ. I would suggest to take via Tirupati ( Krishnagiri, Vellore) and then proceed towards Naidu pet. From Naidu pet to VIJ is good road. Ongole to VIJ six way is almost completed.

@virgovencat- Thank you for the update. I am worried about the stretch from kadpadi to Tirupathi and I am also clueless about joining the NH7 from Tirupathi. Two lanes are a nightmare these days.

@ Kar.carthik - Tirupati to Srikalahasti road is good. I travelled on it few months back. hope it's the same now. From Srikalahasti to Naidupeta, I am not sure. After Naidupeta - it's NH5, which is good.

Do let me know of you take NH7. I want to try new route to HYD. I am bored of driving on same route ( Via NH5 Ongole). I want to try via Tirupathi next time.;-)

Srikalahasti to Naidupeta is equally good (or bad) as is Tirupati to Srikalahasti. I did both in mid Dec.

Guys..will be travelling to Trichy (Tiruchirapalli) from Hyderabad over the weekend. Taking the Chennai route instead of the Bangalore route as I also need to visit my in-laws in Chennai. Will break the journey at Chennai as I will be travelling with my 2 yr old.

1) How is the present condition of Road between Nalgonda and Chennai? I am especially concerned about the road condition of the State Highway through villages and the state of NH5. Since Il be starting at around 1pm at Hyderabad, will I have difficulty negotiating the diversion on NH5 after darkness?
2) Even though its off-topic. Can anyone let me know the best route and how roads are between Chennai (St.Thomas Mount) all the way to Trichy? Any diversions/road works etc? Or is the road smooth all the way. What would be the time taken if starting at around 730AM the next day.
3) Even though we would be packing food, any places to refresh (on the highway itself) for both stretches?

Thanks in advance

As I have mentioned in my previous post there are no real issues between Nalgonda to Medarmetla.
Its four laned toll road throughout and refueling facilities also is ok.
Except for Dhabas no good eateries enroute.
Medarmetla-Nellore lot of diversions so you will flow with the traffic so should not be a problem in the night.
Nellore-Tada excellent highway
After Tada-Chennai will slow you down due to flyover constructions.



Chennai (St.Thomas Mount) all the way to Trichy is tolled four lane no issues.
Plan for 4.30hrs sedate drive excluding breaks.Plenty of eating options enroute.
Depending on where you want to go into Trichy take the bypass which will help to save city traffic.

Thanks a lot for the fantastic detailed update about the road. After reading your post I have decided to use this route for my travel to Tirupati next week.

Are there any safety issues in covering this route at night, with family? Planning to leave Hyd after dinner and reach Tirupati next morning. I am used to night driving and have done B'lore-Hyd a number of times. So don't have any issues in driving at night, provided the up and down traffic is separated by a median.

TIA
Max

Absolutely safe. I left Chennai in the afternoon and crossed Hyderabad and Secunderabad during 1:30-2:00 am, the next day.

We drove yesterday, 21st March 2015, from Chennai to Hyderabad using the above route. Left Chennai (Pallikaranai) at 8 am and reached home at Dr A S Rao Nagar, Hyderabad by 5.30 pm. We stopped at three different places for about 15-20 minutes each. Except diversions where construction activity is going on in some places, and a few villages/towns where the roads are not good, the route is fantastic.
