Default Re: Update on NH9 between Pune and Solapur

Bumping up the thread.

I did a Pune-Solapur trip in May 2015.

Most of the the 4 laning has been completed. Roads are "excellent" after Manjari (Outskirts of Pune) right upto Temburni town
.
Around Temburni about 10 kms is very narrow section passing right thru the market. Add to that the road is in bad state (like what city roads become in monsoon).
After that bad patch the road agains converts to a 4 lane with a solid median.
Temburni to Solapur is again in tip-top shape.

Planning for a drive to Solapur in the coming week for some work.

Mumbai - Solapur is good. Try to cross Pune before day time office going traffic builds up.

Planning to drive down to pandharpur from mumbai the coming thursday, As reports suggest that roads have much improved now, this time I plan to go via the pune solapur - NH9. Four years ago I did a day trip via the satara route.

This time I am travelling with elderly folks and need to break the journey somewhere between pune and pandharpur - what would be a good place to take a break/stay overnight en-route.

Appreciate your inputs.Thanks.

My wife and I senior are citizens traveling to Hyderabad from Pune. We drove this route last year and found the Solapur -Humnabad-Sangareddy road atrocious, particularly as our car a Renault Fluence has a soft suspension. We see a lot of posts suggesting travel via Kalaburgi( nee' Gulburga). However every post mentions a horrible 20Kms of very bad road between Akalkot and Aland.
We do not certainly wish to take a bad road and bust a tyre or worse especially since we travel alone. We have driven a lot including to Srinagar and Mcleodganj and found atrocious roads between Amritsar and Pathankot and Pathankot-Mcleodganj-Chandigarh. So bad that we were driving at 10-15 kmph.
Has there been a recent improvement on this road Akalkot to Aland and if there is no information or improvement what is the alternate route to avoid this bad stretch?

On the way back we propose to drive Vijayawada to Gulburga (8-9 hours). Any suggestions on where to stay in Gulburga?

My advice is to stick to NH9 all the way. The road between Hyderabad and Solapur is a single lane filled with multiple construction areas, and quite a bit of dual lane carriageway ready and being used by the localites. If you start at 5am from Hyderabad, you can easily reach Solapur by 1030-11am, and in daylight all the diversions would be clearly visible also truck traffic is negligible in those hours.

Shortest route between Hyderabad/Solapur/Pune is the NH9. Infact if you see from the air, the route is almost a straight line, with Gulbarga being about 80/100 kms further to the south of the straight line route.
I was reading up on a new Ford technology which has continuously changing dampers, along with a detection system which softens ride into potholes. Immensely useful on almost all Indian roads, especially on NH9

Smile Re: Update on NH9 between Pune and Solapur

Hi,

I am planning a trip from Navi Mumbai to Nanded and plan to go via Pune - Tembhurmi - Latur.

I will be crossing Pune around 12:30 -1 PM. Hence:

1) What route to follow in Pune from Expressway exit to Sholapur Highway?

2) Stopover options between Pune - Temburni ( clean toilets / good food)

3) Good Petrol Pumps ( preferably COCO).

Regards,

Balpreet Singh
