Default re: Delhi/Chandigarh to Dehradun : Route Queries

Has anyone tried route 73A from Paonta Sahib to Naraingarh via Kalesar and Bilaspur? If yes, what is the road condition?

The usual route I take via Nahan is in terrible condition now, especially the stretch at Kala Amb. So I am looking for alternative route.

Well, I took a chance and used this route today. Its very good. Takes 4 hours from Dehradun to Panchkula, which is the same as the Nahan Kala Amb route with pathetic roads on the latter route.

I tried the usual route NH72 via Nahan and Kala Amb to check out feedback on it's repair and better state. From Paonta Sahib to Nahan patchwork has been done. Kala Amb section that is eternally is bad shape HAS BEEN TOTALLY RE LAID! However the construction quality is nothing like the new highways nowaday liky the Sarahan route. So it will last till the monsoons strike again. Also there is anotherbroute to bypass Kala Amb from River View restraurant via Saketi Fossil Park. I started on this route but within a KM met with potholed surface. I asked an oncoming driver how the road ahead was and he immediately asked me to turn back!

I travelled Paonta Sahib to Naraingarh via Nahan in the month of March. The road was busy and quite OK.

From Naraingarh I took State Highway - 1 towards Chandigarh, which was a new, very good, 2-lane road with less traffic (travelled during 12 noon)

The stretch from Kala Amb HP barrier towards Nahan for about 5 km was patched up around March but went bad again in the monsoons. Now it is fine.

From Naraingarh there are two routes towards Barwala. The one mentioned above SH1 is excellent. For the other one if you turn right towards Raipur Rani, road is good but less berm width so less safe, and it has many rural roads joining in. After Raipur Rani, turn right to bypass Barwala for Panchkula, but road is not as good as SH1 to Barwala. Presently Im using SH1. Also given that the Nahan to Paonta Sahib road is patchy, I'll still take the longer but smoother route via Bilaspur and Kalesar Sanctuary.

Update- the wavy stretch from Naraingarh to Kala Amb has been resurfaced. One can maintain a decent speed (80 kmph, which earlier was not possible due to potholes and wavy surface). It's not a good job though and this national highway still awaits the distant dream of 'achche din'. The stretch from Nahan to Paonta Sahib also is a long way away from being the drivers' delight it was 3-4 years back and before. I'll stick to the Paonta Sahib to Nairaingarh via Chachchrauli, Bilaspur route until I hear of NH72 being resurfaced.

I went from Dehradun to Delhi two weeks back and SS-Traveler had given the directions. You can take the Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut(bypass)-Muzaffarnagar-Saharanpur-Dehradun. It will be around 6 hours of driving time.

Road condition was good except for around 2 kms at a place where a bridge is being constructed. Don't remember the exact place.

Guys
I have to travel from Panipat to Dehradun in the next couple of days. These are three possible routes suggested by google maps.
1) panipat- karnal- ladwa- ponta sahib-dehradun
2) panipat-karnal- ladwa - saharanpur- dehradun
3) Panipat- shamli- saharanpur- dehradun

Route no 3 is shortest by about 30kms (200 vs 170kms), but I am not sure it's the best. Which one should I choose?

I'd say go with 1st. It's a clean route and roads are good, if you take the other two routes you'll have to deal with the terrible route of Mohand. I went there recently and the roads were totally broken and there were huge potholes at almost every 400 meters of distance. If this is not a major problem to you, you can go ahead with 3rd option, roads are decent and 30km saves you the fuel and time. Just make sure to be careful and don't go too fast, an innova guy tailing me screwed his front shocker while trying to overtake and couldn't notice a huge pothole.
