Its a 4 lane highway.. not an expressway.
12-13 hours to bangalore from pune considering decent speeds.

Haveri-chitradurga stretch is going to be declared a NASA expedition site soon.

Please try a forum search, road_master. This route has been discussed to death on the forum.

There are many threads giving updates on the NH4 connecting Mumbai - Bangalore and this thread might be of help to you as recently a couple of folks travelled to and fro and some will be doing this stretch in a couple of weeks. So this might be of help.

There are lot of diversions since both sides of the highway are not finished. But most of the highway will have the new road which is used as a two way road.

I meant to say.. the roads are horrible.

NASA mistook it for the moon and wants to setup base there.

It was a joke :|

Aha! You got me there. Good one! Maybe ISRO would also be interested in the Chandrayaan practicing there before doing what it actually will be doing

I think what are you are referring to is the BMIC (Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor), which is going to be an expressway between Mysore and Bangalore when it is completed. For now, the only road to mysore is the State Highway.

Its 4 laned highway not expressway at all but government is looting public by collecting expressway fees for normal 4 laned highway with lot still bad stretches between Chitradurga and Hubli.

Road Junctions don't have free ways like underpass or flyover in most of the places.

Road smoothness is not good at all. Still long way to go see best road.

Regards,

Ravi.

road_master, you will enjoy the stretch between Kolhapur and Belagavi (Belgaum), by far the best on this route.

OT:

ravibhat, have you gone on the road from Chittoor leading to Tirupathi? That's looting.
