Shrivz and I drove down from Pune to Kolkata via Hyderabad, Vizag and Puri around two weeks back.

The stretch from Kolkata to Vijaywada (NH6,5) is part of the golden quadrilateral. Apart from a stretch in Orissa near Balasore/Bhadrak (60 kms of the stretch took us 3 hours!), the roads were pretty decent. NH6 in AP is brilliant!

Vijaywada onwards, the highway is a 2 lane highway with a village after every kilometer. The road condition is decent. You will find it excellent after the Orissa patch!

Gautam
Did you come via Baripada-Baharagorha or via Jaleshwar/Belda etc? What I mean is, is NH 60 open now? Sections of the road got washed out in July.

We weren't aware of the detour via Baripada-Baharagorha. So NH60 it was for us, and the highway was nowhere to be seen. It's a mess.

You can check out our GPS log here:
Pune - Hyd - Vizag - Puri - Kolkata - EveryTrail (Ignore the Cal-Del-Pune lines)

EDIT in last post: NH5 in AP

UPDATE: It's been raining again in Orissa and floods are expected. Please find out about this before planning your trip!

You never quite wrote the travelogue. I am still waiting. It would be actually an epic.

I thought the NH5 road portion from Tangi / Sunakhala to Berhampur (about 100 kms) was in shambles for the past few years. Is it 4-laned now?
