We traveled on NH 3 till on this Christmas. Here is a brief report on route condition:
Etawah - Gwaliar (It doesn't apply to Delhi travelers though) 116 kms. Extremely bad road.

Gwaliar - Shivpuri
Good 2 lane road, but expect bumps here n there, also potholes in last 30-40 kms when going from Gwaliar side.

Shivpuri - Guna - Beora - Indore
Good 2 lane road, Occasional bumps / potholes specially near/in towns. heavy truck traffic, occasional traffic jam sort of, or long dead slow moving ques of trucks (we faced it 2 times between Gwaliar- Shivpuri - Guna).

Road gets better after Dewas near Indore. Indore by pass is nice new express type road.

These are very general observations. We'll soon have sharp observations from Kumar sir as he told.

I frequently do Delhi - Jaipur and it generally takes me 3.5 - 4 hrs on monday mornings (including a 15-20 min stop at McDonalds Manesar).

Also, I recently did Jaipur - Chittorgarh - Neemuch via NH8 and NH79 and it took me 5 hrs without any break. The roads are pretty good and traffic is scarce after ajmer; you will only slow down for paying tolls.

Thus, if you decide to go via jaipur:

Day 1: Delhi (~6 am) - Chittorgarh / Nimbahera
Day 2: Chittorghar / Nimbahera - Indore

Have a nice Trip!

Hey fellas, planning a similar drive from Noida - Indore and was considering doing Chittorgarh - Ratlam - Indore drive. Is it still not advisable or have conditions changed?

When i drive down to Ranthambhore from Gurgaon taking -

Gurgaon - Dharuhera - Alwar - Bandikui - Sikandra - Sawai Madho pur - Ranthambhore

I see signage for Indore also on the Mega Highway project - dont know the road conditions, etc - but the road till Sawai Madhopur is excellent on route.

Has anyone travelled to Indore on this route? How are the roads after Sawai Madhopur?

The best route as per me :

Delhi-Jaipur-Chittorh-Nimbahera-Neemuch-Ratlam-Lebad-Indore.

The route is 4L all the way till Lebad.

Delhi-Jaipur is 4-L NH8. (May haves issues with diversion due to 6-lane conversion)
Jaipur-Kishangarh-Chittorh-Neemuch-Lebad is NH79 which is full 4-lane.

Since you go via Ratlam/Jaipur, there is a slight increase in distance.
But that is fine, as its 4-lane all the way.
