Default Latest road conditions - Hyd-Raichur-Hospet

Having travelled on this route 3 days ago, I'm putting up this update on the Hyd-Raichur-Hospet road.
From the turnoff to Mahbubnagar, the narrow tree-lined road is fairly good with a very few bad patches. It is very crowded through Mahbubnagar town. Road upto Raichur is acceptable.
From Gangavati to Kamalapur, about 30 Kms stretch is just potholes and craters held together by bits of road! It took us two hrs to traverse this bit, esp since were in a low-slung i20.
After kamalapur to Hospet, road is acceptable.

Where exactly did you turn off NH7 - not Beechupalli?

The turning must have been from Jadcherla.

The alternate route to beat Mahbubnagar traffic is to go straight on NH7 and turn for Mahabubnagar at Boothpur. But the 10 kms from Bhoothpur to Mahbubnagar is drivable but bad roads.

So the trade off call can be made based on the time you are passing through Mahabubnagar. Note that the Boothpur way is around 10 kms longer.
