Any specific reason for going via Nayudupeta, you can go directly to Kalahasti from Tada, the roads were in great shape when I made the trip to Tirupati in June.

Also you missed out mentioning Renigunta or am I missing something. Is there a direct route to Rajampet from Kalahasti.

Nope, there is no sort of widening going on the section towards Tirupati from Kadapa via Rajampeta

Nayudupeta road bypasses Srikalahasti and its a much wider road where you can maintain 100 at daytime save for the number of speed breakers all the way.

I agree Tada-Kalahasti itself is in good shape, but the time it took to cross Kalahasti wasn't worth it. It'll take a good 25-30 min to get to the other side of town.

Somehow I did'nt go through Renigunta at all The SH61 from Nayudupeta/Kalahasti meets the Rajampeta/Kadapa road and the road from Tiruttani at one junction. I guess this is the road 5km towards Tirupati that bypasses Renigunta (this is mentioned in the Hyderabad-Tirupati thread multiple times. Forget the name of the place though).
