HV, I have a civic so bit confused on the NH3, if you are sure that the route is ok to take then I will be happy to take that as it also saves me by crossing the dacoit area burhanpur and shorter, I was inclined to the above route as I have done it in the past.

Also someone said it is heavy on truck traffic and time consuming.

Except for the 120-odd kms from Dhule to beyond Sendhwa, rest is lovely 4-laned road. Even the 2-laned sections are OK. No point in going via Burhanpur.

You mean this will be a dacoit free zone and i will have no problems with the civic GC on this route? even that 120 odd kms?

Yes apparently the road is now very good but like I said elsewhere, it has lot of truck traffic which may make the drive slightly frustrating.

Like Technocrat said, road is very good and traffic very high. Dacoity is not a problem on this road although parts around Sendhwa have been known to be unsafe in the past. Your Civic GC will not be a problem.

As pravdr mentioned, the route is Bhopal-Biaora-Guna-Shivpuri-Gwalior-Agra-Delhi. Biaora is the point where you join NH3 when you are coming from Bhopal.

Woah, nice to see everyone pooling in to help a fellow bhpian reach faster and safer huge shout out to the spirit of Bhpians. Well, planning to do a Mumbai to Bhopal trip on saturday the 14 th august, i have a fair idea by now about the route to be followed however would still request you guys to help me with the exact route and the current conditions the feedback that i get is the Mumbai-nashik-dhule-indore-bhopal route is very nice now and no serious issues. Still could you please help me with few tips as this is my first road trip for such a long distance, also could you please help me with general guidelines like preliminary checks on the car and what to do in case of a breakdown, how to seek help and rest of the issues, BTW i plan to start at around 4:30 am on saturday from mumbai and reach bhopal the same day and as well cover the whole route during day time as this is my first road trip. i will be using my 05 Elantra GLS.

I use Bombay-Nasik-Dhule-Malegaon-Shirpur-Indore. I travel only till Indore so can't comment on the Indore-Bhopal stretch.

The road till Indore is mostly good and mostly 4-laned. Bombay-Nasik is also now more or less 4-laned. The Kasara Ghats near Nasik are one way now, so lot of time is saved. But maxicabs do come downhill when you don't expect them. Expect to take around 4.5hrs to reach Dhule. Malegoan is a breeze with good roads. Next would be Shirpur and that's when a 100km construction patch starts towards the MP border. After that it is 4-lane all the way to Indore. I don't expect the bad patch to have become any better thanks to the monsoon.

Bombay-Indore takes me about 10hrs in the Safari with stops for food and tea.

Since it's your first road trip, be careful for oncoming traffic especially around blind corners. Honk honk and honk. Ensure your car's fluids are topped up and pressures checked. Keep a car charger for your cellphone. Fill up at only big pumps and stop for food only at places where there are a lot of cars.

Yes, there are bypasses for Dewas(2-Lane concrete), Indore (4 Lane concrete) and Mhow (which is normal AB road now). All the 3 bypasses are in excellent condition. I am from Indore and would be keen to meet you when you visit here in Indore.

Thanks
