Tarmac (as in road surface) is good - no problem. The challenges are as described by ranjitp1 above. Since only 2 lanes of a 4-lane highway are open in most stretches, overtaking can be hampered by a slow moving vehicle in your lane and oncoming traffic. Most importantly, there is a railway crossing you have to navigate that is notorious for long lines - unless you cross it relatively early in the morning (before 9 or 10 am or so)

Gautam, do you travel only on that stretch? Get out of MH sometimes

Jokes apart, tarmac or road surface between solapur and indapur was ALWAYS good.

Only problem was and remains is the heavy truck traffic.

Hi all,
I will be driving from Gachibowli, Hyd to Aundh, Pune with my office colleagues on this Wed in my Scorpio.

Thanks to this thread, I understand the conditions till Hadapsar. However, how should I reach Aundh from Hadapsar? I estimate to reach Hadapsar at 10:00pm so the city traffic hopefully will not be a problem.

thanks for the help.

Prabin.

Best Choice - At that time of the night, you should continue on from Hadapsar towards Swargate. Take a right turn (much before Swargate) onto MG road. This continues for a while and you will hit Moledina Road. Take left and keep going straight crossing the river, univ circle till you reach bremen circle. Take left to enter Aundh.

This route requires least amount of turns to get towards Mumbai/Aundh

Thanks. Will travel as per the recommendation.

BTW, the route condition update seems to be 2 months old. Has anyone travelled Hyd-Pune recently? Request an update...

Just travelled to and fro from Pune to Indapur over weekend.

Wow! The road is fantabulous apart from couple of diversions.
The 4 lane road is 95% complete, extremely good quality road with ultra smooth surface.

The road makers Tata Constructions speeks for itself.

Did Hyd-Pune on last Wed.
  • Hyd-Solapur: Agree with RoadTiger's comments below. No change
  • Solapur bypass: Still frustrating with many diversions.
  • Solapur-Indapur: Became dark as we crossed Solapur. The surface on 1 side is done. However, many places have opened up for both sides as well. Seems some progress since the last review of RoadTiger's. Took about 2:15 mins for this stretch.
  • Indapur-Pune: Awesome with still diversions at 2 places.

Started at Gachibowli flyover at 1:30pm and reached Pune by 1:30am. I was driving with my office colleagues who are not used to such long drives. We must have taken several small breaks of 10-15 mins (at least 10+) and a 30 min stop for evening snacks and a 45 min stop for dinner.

I guess Gachibowli-Hadapsar is a very comfortable 10 hr journey with couple of small 10 min breaks.

What is the condition of this route off late? I am planning to ride solo from Pune to Hyderabad on 8th of June. Any advice?

Not much of change from the April update.

Pune-Indapur:Excellent
Indapur-Solapur:Work in progress.The two level crossings are a mess
Solapur-Hyd:Very average and craetered around Homnabad.

Drive takes about 12hrs to cover the 500 odd kms,factor in an extra couple of hours for the bike.

PS:The heat is terrible,so make sure you are well equipped with fluids and the likes.

The earlier you start the better.You would escape the dry heat and the truck mess and keep your fingers crossed that you dont get stuck at the railway gates.Ideally leave at 4,then you would be able to reach Solapur by 830am,and pune by 2pm.If you want to avoid the mess go via Mohol-Pandharpur-Mhaswad-Satara-NH4-Khed-Pune

Thanks Ranjit. I have 2 questions.

1. How many hours of delay are we talking about due to the mess between Solapur and Indapur? On average, how much time will it take between these two?

2. What if to skip the mess between Solapur and Indapur, I take the route Solapur-Pandharpur-Yashwantnagar-Indapur. This only adds 50km extra to the route and approx 1 hour more. Not sure of the road conditions on this route though.

Solapur-Pune via Indapur or Pandharpur is 5-5.5hrs.

Via NH9 from my experiences it could go upto 6-6.5hrs depending on whether you get caught at the railway gate or not.

I dont have any info about the route you mentioned,though I havent seen anybody taking it or talking about it.
