Default Re: Mumbai - Allahabad - Best route?

I've looked at another alternative. It's longish but much faster because of NHs mainly. Infact, in the entire to and fro stretch there is only about 200 kms of SHs, rest of the 3800 kms are NHs and from what I could gather the road conditions are pretty good!

Here is the revised route:
Onward:
Navi Mumbai - Vapi - Surat - Ahmedabad - Udaipur - Kota - Shivpuri - Jhansi - Kanpur - Allahabad - Azamgarh (through NH8 - NH76 - NH25 - NH2 and UP SH7)

Return:
Azamgarh - Faizabad - Lucknow - Kanpur - Jhansi - Shivpuri - Kota - Chittorgarh - Ujjain - Indore - Mhow - Dhule - Nashik - Navi Mumbai (through NH233 - NH28 - NH25 - NH 76 - NH79 - MP SH27 - NH3)

The only road condition I'm relatively unaware of is Chittorgarh - Ujjain - Indore. Any help on this stretch will be quite useful.

This is exactly what I was suggesting you.

Awesome roads.

- Kota-Chittor : NH76 - 4 Lane
- Chitorh-Nimbahera-Ratlam-Badnawar : 4-Lane. Sections around Nimba Hera are 2-lane I think.
- Badnawar-Ujjain-Indore : Nice 2-Lane
- Indore-Pithampur-Dhule-Malegaon-Pune : Most 4-Lane

Excellent! That seals the deal for me :-). Thanks a lot, ampere and thanks are also to HVK for his valuable inputs.

Still in London, counting my days before I reach Mumbai and then off I go on the 3rd of May!

Currently, I recommend a different route for those coming from Hyderabad/ Nagpur side:

Nagpur-Seoni-Mandla-Shahpura-Umariya-Barhi-Maihar-Satna-Chitrakoot-Allahabad (only 15 kms of rough roads).
Alternative is also Nagpur-Chhindwara-Narsingpur-Damoh-Satna

Rewa to Allahabad section with in MP is not at all good. It is being 4 lanes. UP side is fine. One can maintain 70-80. I had traveled on this route in APril 1st week. Wherever 4 lane work is going on road condition is worse. Old 2 lane roads are in much better condition.

Roads in Bihar and Jharkhand are a revelation Excellent state roads with proper sign boards in english and hindi about various tourist places

To avoid Rewa-Mangwan-Katra sector which is terrible, I recommend Rewa-Sirmaur-Katra which is good & avoids most of the mess, except the last few kms from Katra to UP border.

Exclamation Re: Mumbai - Allahabad - Best route?

Hi,

I will start my road trip to Allahabad from Mumbai on this 18th early morning. Have had gone through all threads but am confused as am not aware of the current road conditions. Major block that i concluded after reading threads starts from Bhopal to Allahabad.

Request suggestions for best routes. Also, please suggest which city should i be halting at. Can bear some bad roads (with extra 100 Kms) but not willing to take longer routes.

Thank you
Regards,
Amrendra

Hi,

I have completed this road trip last evening. My route for this journey was:

Mumbai - Nasik - Dhule - Indore - Bhopal - Raisen (NH86) - Narvar (NH86A) - Gairatganj - Rahatgarh - Sagar - Lalitpur - Jhansi - Gobanipur (take right underneath the flyover) - Ghatampur - Jahanabad - Chaudagra - Fatehpur - Allahabad. This route was total 1,600 Kms (approx) which is 200 Kms extra from the normal 1,400 Kms but trust me it proved to be worth opting for this route.

In entire journey, i experienced 10 Kms of bad road with an average speed of 20 - 30 Kmph which was while exiting Sagar city. Another 50 Kms stretch from Bhopal towards Sagar was moderately bad with an average speed of 60 - 70 Kmph but please do not try this route at night as it may not be safe. I came to know about this only after reading a sign board which read "Please do not honk as it may be dangerous"...bit scary when you're driving early morning with you being the lone traveler on the road

Apart from these 60 Kms, the entire journey was very smooth. Speed from Mumbai to Indore can be easily maintained at 110 - 125 Kmph however once you enter UP, you will have to slow down to 90 - 100 Kmph despite driving on expressway. The reason is that Villagers, Cattle, Tractors, etc cross roads without caring for the high speed vehicles plying on these highways and they suddenly emerge from the median. So one has to be extra careful.

I started at 0530 hours and reached Bhopal at 2000 hours same day. Took an overnight stay here and then started next morning again at 0530 hours. I reached Allahabad at around 2100 hours. Needless to mention that i took a lot of breaks in between as i did not want to stress much.

In all it was an awesome drive. Trust this information helps.


Regards
Amrendra
