The work on this stretch has been going on forever, which is a bit of a problem.
But its suggested to stick to NH9 only for Hyd-Solapur for the lack of any better option.

Friends, planning a trip to Mumbai on the 15 Oct and appreciate the update on 23 Sep above. Your valuable inputs sought on the Gulbarga - Solapur route? Is that a better option by any chance? I have already been on this route until Gulbarga and I hoping this is still the same (which was good). I plan to leave at 5AM with a hope to reach Mulund by 6PM. I will be travelling with kids and dont really mind fighting the 'possibly' single laned road if this was any better to NH9 and if that makes sense!

Are you starting from Gulbarga??

Otherwise if you are starting from Hyd, then instead of setting off towards Gulbarga, its best take NH9 to reach Solapur directly.
Its not in best of shape, but it still better of the other available combinations.

Actually once you enter the highway (Solapur TO Pune of course, Hyd to Solapur doesn't deserve being called a highway), you will be greeted with lots of large sign boards of Restaurant - I think one of the most prominent is Kamat (veg) and it lies on the Pune to Solapur side so you will have to take a U turn. Khan Chacha (non veg) will come earlier while going Hyd to Pune and is on the Hyd to Pune side.

You won't go wrong with any of the restaurant who have spend huge amount on advertisement They make money because people find them acceptable.

I am planning to make a trip to Hyderabad around Diwali time. Since I will be there for 4-5 days, driving down definitely seems to be the most logical option, considering that i have a family of five.

I had done a trip last year too, and had found the Solapur-Hyderabad stretch manageable for most part, and iffy & sometimes quite bad during certain stretches. From the feedback on this thread I get a feeling that it has gone down a bit. Thats a shame.

For some reason the Solapur - Hyderabad stretch doesnt seem to get much patronage from the political class to push it through. Perhaps its because it passes through three states and has somewhat become an orphan of sorts. Overall, the highway continues to suffer.

I think i will need to account for 10 to 11 hours at least, for the trip. Will start early, by 5 am or so, and hope to pass Solapur by around 9 or latest by 10.. Will 6 hours from there to Hyderabad be reasonable?

A 6 am start from Hyderabad would mean that you would reach Zaheerabad anywhere between 7.30 top 8 am. This again depends on which part of Hyderabad you would start your journey.

Ghar Dhaba- COCO BP Outlet is a good option. This is just before entering Zaheerabad and falls on your left while doing Hyderabad-Pune.

You should reach Temburni around 1.30 to 1.45 pm. Hotel Jagdamba and Atithi Inn would come just before entering Temburni town. Both these are Veg hotels.

I travelled on this route on 16th and 18th Oct. through Temburni and beyond to Ahmednagar and Shirdi. Road conditions from Hyderabad to Sholapur are in a sad state with roads being rutted and broken in the entire stretch post Sangareddy. Though the potholes have been filled up, the patch work is uneven and calls for very cautious driving.

It took me 6 hrs to reach Sholapur.

Friends

Thanks much for your pointers. I have completed the trip to Mumbai and I guess accounting for all odds (read: the roads) until Solapur, this is probably the best option available to us if anyone is going to Pune or Mumbai from Hyderabad.

Onward was a bit hectic as the roads are pretty unknown to anyone travelling for the first time.
Left home at 7:15AM reached Solapur at 1 pm (including a 1 hr stop in between for breakfast, refreshments and some snaps). Lunch @ Khan Chacha (excellent stop for lunch ). I went to the one that was somwehere inside the city, family found the one on the highway to be dirtt. Back on the highway @ 1:45 (traffic chaos at its heights in Solapur) reaching Hadapsar @ 5:30 (with a 15 mins break for tea). Pune traffic was real bad (Managed to reach Hinjewadi only at 6:45pm). Stayed at a friends house and left for Mumbai the next day after a good Sat night (you know what I mean )

Return from Mumbai
Started at 6:15 AM from Mulund and reached home at 6:30 pm (Kokapet, Hyd). Breakfast @ food plaza just before Pune at 8 AM, Stuck in Pune traffic from 8:45AM till 10 AM ( to reach Hadapsar), Lunch @ Vithal Kamats at 12:30 (25kms before Solapur), tea at 4 pm @ Hotel Gujarat somewhere near Basavakalyan

Some Pics for your reference (Only the Hyd - Solapur stretches). I think the others would be irrelevant considering roads are great

Overall very UNEVEN with heavy to very heavy Truck and Village traffic albeit some small good stretches (4 landing is complete but not fully open)

As most of you noticed, there are 'Men At Work' sign boards all through the stretch until Solapur however, in most cases (80%?) neither men nor work is happening (Of course! how can work happen when there are NO men!!?). I would assume anywhere between 3-4 yrs for the entire stretch to be ready.

Hi, Please tell me the condition of the route until Shirdi because I'm planning to go to Nashik taking right turn from Tembhurni.

Thanks.

After you take the right at Temburni towards Ahmednagar, the first 60 odd Kms until Karmala and slightly beyond, is not in the best of condition. The four lane work is going on for quite some time and requires you to be careful while driving on this stretch.

Some of the sections near Karmala are in bad shape and slows you down considerably. Be watchful at intersections of the old and the new road.

After Karmala, it is an undivided highway, but the road surface is descent and speed up to 80 kmph can be maintained.

Upon reaching Ahmednagar, you have the option of going through the city of take the bypass. The bypass is in good condition.

Road from Ahmednagar to Shirdi is completely four lane now and is in excellent condition.
