Hi All:

Request your advice on a trip I (it's just me as of now, yours truly) intend to embark upon late April- it's from Trivandrum to Bhopal, and I plan to drive via Bangalore- Hyderabad- Nagpur- Bhopal.

Would you advise that I do an early AM drive or a night drive to Hyderabad? I also plan to do pit-stops at all these cities to ensure I'm refreshed. Many thanks in advance !

It depends on where you are planning to refresh in Hyderabad and whether you plan to stay the night here. Like all other Indian cities, Hyderabad too is blessed with chock-a-bloc traffic twice a day during the office rush hours. While you will comfortably cruise all the way till the end of the Hyderabad ORR, your final destination inside the city may wear you down after the 500 odd KM drive.

If you are planning a stay near areas like Gachibowli etc, then I suggest an early morning start. You will reach Hyderabad during lunch time and you wont face much traffic as well. This will also help you get onto the ORR faster for your further journey to Nagpur.

Are you planning for pitstops in Bangy, Hyderabad and Nagpur, all 3 places?

About timing your drive, few pointers:
1. Late April will be quite hot in the day time, all throughout the bangy-hyderabad stretch.
2. Traffic in between kurnool-hyderabad is considerably higher during the morning and evening peak hours, consists of mainly 2-wheelers commuting between the neighboring towns/villages. Also, this stretch sees more traffic compared to the kurnool-anantapur stretch.
3. Driving in between Hyd-Bangy at night is very peaceful, if you are used to night driving. I prefer a night drive.
4. If you are planning for a pit stop in Hyderabad, there are quite a few hotels now near the airport, just before you enter the city. Accessing ORR from these hotels will not be a problem at any time of day or night.

You can decide your timings as per your plan.

Moving to Bangalore and I shall be driving down this Sunday in my Nano! Last time with my wife and toddler, it took me about 11 hours in September.

Going alone this time and plan to start early by about 5/6 in the morning. Starting from AS Rao Nagar and thinking of avoiding the extra 50 kms by going through Sec'bad, Mehdipatnam taking the PVNR Expressway.

Depending on when I start, plan to stop for Breakfast should be @ Suraj Grand in Kurnool and next break at Ananthapur to have my fav Nannari sarbat. Not sure about lunch but would you guys be able to give me suggestions for that?

Have the tolls been changed by any chance since Demonetization or are they the same?

You can target Nandi Upachar, Devanahalli. This comes on the right side at a junction in Devanahalli.

Skip Nandi Upchar and stop at India Paratha Company (or some name like this) for delicious North Indian paratha combo meals and lassi, which will be on the right side after another 200 metres. You will need to use the right side service road from Nandi Upchar junction itself.

May not be due to DeMo, but regular new FY revision I guess would be kicking off from April 1. Most probably would apply to this sector as well.

We completed a Bangalore - Hyderabad on short notice on Sunday. We left Gottigere around 2:45 PM, crossed the airport by 4:30. We reached Bowenpally by about 12:30AM, with breaks at Kamat (tea/juice), Bluemoon (buttermilk), Kurnool (dinner) and Pyramid (toilet/leg stretches).

The traffic was a little more higher than normal, especially in the Kurnool - Hyderabad stretch.

We are leaving on the return trip tomorrow early morning.

Considering my last trip was in Nov/Dec, I am not sure of the increase (if any). I did not track the total toll amounts.

I felt that the tolls have been rounded up in most places. Most of them seemed to be Rs. 100.

Had a weekend drive to Banglore and back.
Road conditions are good.
From Kurnool to Gooty some bridge intersections are uneven. At speeds need to control the vehicle at times. The car flew over with a thud and wipers going on and rear view mirror had be readjusted.
Fast tags after Kurnool to Bagepalli need to wait for crossing over of vehicles beyond the collection counter. Had a bad experience behind the lorry guy who's tag was not working and was waiting for my clearance for 15mins close to Kurnool toll.
