Default Re: Advice on Mumbai-Kashid route

Went to Kashid over the weekend and though the place was as good as ever - though crowded, the roads are in a mess and traffic worse.

Barring a short stretch just before Alibaug, the roads are either potholed or totally rutted making driving a torturous affair for both the car and occupants.

Heavy truck / trailers just added to the pain and will suggest to anyone travelling to leave early which will at least avoid traffic.

Hi Guys,

I am planning to drive down to Kashid from Pune on the 13th of Feb. Any updates on road & driving condition would be much appreciated.

Did this route last week. Pune - Expressway - Khalapur Exit - Pen - Vadkhal - Poynad - Kihim / Alibaug / Kashid.
  • Only the notorious NH66 (Mumbai - Goa highway) was a painful drive. Slow moving traffic with loads of trucks with overtaking almost impossible.
  • Thal road (SH89) should be avoided. Terrible surface.
  • Sai Inn Resort on Alibaug - Revas is good place to stay with / without family
Keep revvin'

Went to Kashid this past weekend.

Having been to Tamhini last month, I knew first hand how broken those roads are; so, decided to go via Expressway - Pen.

The Expressway was the usual weekend drive, took the Lonavala exit and drove until Khopoli on the old highway. Then got back on the Expressway, took the Khalapur exit - Pen - Vadkhal - Poynad -Kashid.

The roads are horrible once you exit the Expressway, the monsoon has taken its toll. There's only a few patches with good roads but those are far and between.

The roads within the towns in Konkan are backbreaking.
