Thanks a lot for the update, ranjitp1. Was anxiously waiting for it as I had to travel to Sholapur and beyond.

Reduction in travel time by approximately 2 hrs is a definite plus. How is the traffic on this route?

Travel time is reduced drastically to 3.5 to 4hrs.

Road condition till Solapur is pretty good except for few locations with diversions still in place. We managed decent speed to reach the outskirts of Solapur in 4hrs.
Am I correct in understanding that Pune to Hyderabad or the other way round is an 8 hours drive by this Solapur Gulbarga Chevella route?

I have no idea about this route. However, if the road conditions from Solapur-Hyd (NH9) are good, yes we can, as I have covered that stretch in ~3.5hrs(till Miyapur) last yr when the roads were good.

yes nh9 is the best route if it stays good but unfortunately in todays condition you are lucky if you cover it in 6.5hrs

Are you saying 6.5hrs for Hyd-Solapur part of NH9 ??? In that case,it's a really sad situation to call it NH. Any idea which route the bus operators are using these days?

Hi Ranjit,

I need one advise (I dont know whether its too late, I am planning to start tomorrow around 11am from Pune). Since, like other times I will be driving only with my wife, do you suggest to drive from Solapur to Hydrebad through Gulberga route during evening hours? Or better I start Saturday early morning 5am?

Thanks,
LivetoDrive

It will take you around 6 hours for the Hyd-Solapur with limited stops.

Another quick update on the NH9. I drove back to Hyderabad on the 20th of October and the Hyd-Solapur section has improved marginally. There were feeble attempts to repair the massive potholes in the SadashivPet-Zaheerabad sector so things are slightly better. Not sure if the recent rains have undone this effort.

The Karnataka sector, in an around Humnabad continues to be quite bad with no visible signs of any repair work being carried out. This now takes the crown for the worst stretch on this route.

Thanks for the Gulbarga route recommendation ranjitp1. I will try this out the next time I do this trip.

Hi,

Here is my update after driving from Pune to Hydrebad on Friday (1st Nov) and coming back to Pune on Tuesday (5th Nov).

On Thursday, 31st October, I took detailed print outs of the route from Solapur to Hydrebad via Akkalkot, Gulberga, Sedam. Started around 11:45 am from Lohegaon, Pune and reached Solapur around 4:30PM without any trouble.

In Solapur, my GPS navigation took me through a bad route to reach Akkalkot. After a small rough patch for 5-10 KMs from Solapur, the rest 20KMs road was pretty good. After Akkalkot, road is completely damaged for the next 25KMs which took me around an hour to cross.

Almost when this dangerous patch was coming to an end, where locals also advised me to drive carefully to avoid a car breakdown, I could see a green board which looked like there is a toll booth nearby . The time was around 7PM. I was a bit tensed since I had no clue how far is Gulberga and I almost made my mind to stay in Gulberga that night. Seeing the toll sign board made me really frustrated. But to my surprise, after few meters, I found the bad road coming to a sudden end and a carpet is laid in front of me.

There was no stopping after that. I cruised to Gulberga around 8PM. Enjoyed a Shawarma in Kababish restaurant in Gulberga ORR. Then charged towards Hydrebad and reached at 11:30 PM. Covered almost 250KMs in just 3-4 hours.

I wish I could save this route in my navigator which could help me while coming back from Hyderabad. There are couple of bends without sign boards and while coming back I could not figure out the road from Gulberga to Akkalkot. So, drove through NH218 to Umerga and had to face the bad stretch of Mumbai Highway till Solapur.

All over it was a great experience and thanks to all particularly RanjitP for discovering this awesome route to Hyderabad.

Almost a month without any updates on this route? People stopped driving in this route or no change in the road conditions? Can someone throw some light?
As you know that the Solapur-Pune road is brilliant, I would be more concerned about the Hyd- Solapur road conditions.

NH9 solapur-Hyd continues to be in shambles,no repairs begun till about 10days back.

No food joints or rest areas on this route.Biobreaks to answer natures call and carry packed food and water.

Alternate route via Akkalkot has a bad 20km stretch between Akkalkot and the KA border and can take upto one hour to cover the stretch depending on the type of vehicle.Rest of the route is in very good condition.

In short take the shatabdi if you can.
