Nope. The one over Narmada River is between Bharuch and Ankleshwar towns and the one mentioned here (Bhiwandi) is when nearing Mumbai.

We took Chinchoti Anjur Phata to bypass Vasai bridge which was showing a 2 hour slow down and were stuck in truck traffic. It was nerve racking since it was night, raining and we were the only car stuck. For any fellow motorist just be a little observant since all small vehicles (LMV) were bypassing this traffic by going on the wrong side and by passing all the traffic caused by the truck check post.

I know it is against the traffic rules but just be a little careful and cognisant that you are on the wrong side and give right of way to on coming traffic.
Thanks guys. Actually i too would taking this route coming 30th but starting from Delhi, hence wanted to know all bottlenecks that i would face in this route.

Since we are at this topic, one more question.
If i have to reach Mumbai latest by 12/1 PM, what time should i ideally start if i start from Udaipur??

It will take about 12-13 hours including decent breaks and if you dont encounter any off beat traffic situation. So if you want to reach at 12-1pm then you would have to drive through the night. The route has very heavy truck and trailer traffic so I would be extremely careful.

Let us work backwards. Ahmedabad Mumbai is a 7-8 Hours affair for 500 kms depending on traffic.

Udaipur to Ahmedabad will be roughly 4.5 Hours assuming you are not entering the city and hitting NE1 for Vadodara directly.

This makes the total journey time to 12.5-13.5 Hours including all your breaks and that means, you really need to start at midnight from Udaipur for Mumbai to reach Mumbai by 12/1 PM.

Now, you will have an easy entry and exit for Ahmedabad onto NE1 between 0400-0500am but you will hit Bharuch - Ankleshwar belt at 0700-0800 am which I feel is still "super safe" to bypass the NH8 Bridge with least local traffic that starts to get thick only after 0830/0900.

I would suggest you break only after you cross Ankleshwar at Honest Hotel (along with multiple options like CCD etc) here.

With this, you may not really have to stop anywhere ahead till Mumbai and even if you wish, you can always stop at "Sugar & Spice" after Navasari and refill your car and take a quick break.

I had done similar drive but from Rajkot with a 0400am departure, crossed Ahmedabad at 0700 and was in Thane at 1330 without exceeding 100/110 KMPH.

So you suggest that i should go through Ahmedabad and not through Godhra? Reason for asking because google suggest going via Godhra. Will Ahmedabad route via NH1 be a faster one?

Not really. You can always opt for the Godhra route and I was giving you the perspective there.

The Godhra - Halol - Vadodara route is simply awesome and well managed and if I recall it right, it is maintained by L&T. I had last taken this on my return from Indore to Bangalore and loved every bit of it.

This option will help you bypass Ahmedabad completely and you reach Vadodara after NE1. It will surely save you an hour but then you will miss out driving on NE1.

Perfect, will take Godhra route only. Thanks a Ton.

Since i am starting from Delhi, i was thinking of halting at Udaipur, however as per your guidance reaching Mumbai before 1Pm from Udaipur is tight, hence i would try and cover as much on day 1 and try to reach as close to Ahmedabad/Godhra so that next day i can cross that infamous bridge early morning and reach Mumbai in time.
Any suggestion for place to stop over for a night between Udaipur-Godhra stretch?

As for the NE1, maybe i can do that while returning as i wont be time crushed. Have heard lot about this highway.

I just returned from Nathdwara yesterday, the Godhra road is really smooth and they have stopped taking toll for private vehicles now.Yes it is maintained by L&T

I went via Godhra and returned via NE1, going via NE1 it took me 14hrs to reach Mumbai and while going it took only 12.5 hrs. It is a good 100 Kms extra if one travels via Ahmedabad and a lot of tolls too.

Not a stop over. But, don't miss the food here on Godhra bypass.

These are typical Hotels you will find all over Gujarat highways and you will soon begin to realise that they all look the same most of the times.

A huge parking area, glass facades, Covered parking for cars, "Pure Veg", Green Dot, A toy and petty electronics shop outside, Non-AC and AC Dining halls.

Again, they serve usual North Indian (Punjabi) and as well typical Kathiwadi (Region of Gujarat) food along with South India dishes (which I would refrain from ordering).

Butter Milk, Garlic-Potato Curry, Sev-Tomato Curry are typical Kathiwadi options that you should not miss, usually on the spicier side.

Apart from that, order Rotis (Phulkas) Instead of Tandoor Rotis. They go well with all the Gujurati curries.

And mind you, you will find aplenty of these hotels and each one is good in their own terms and you really wont complain.

Yes they do but then don't expect much. They are not the ideal last minute option as well.
