I will be taking this route to go to Chandigarh on the 19th of November. Queries as follows:
1. Is the situation at Sardar Bridge still the same?
2. We will be travelling on bikes; will the traffic jam be relevant to bikes too?
3. We will be starting from Pune at 0400 hrs so we should be at Ankleshwar by 1000 hrs. Should we take the Sardar Bridge or the Golden Bridge?

Hi raghuvir,
There will be traffic block at the Sardar bridge (I mean the bridge on NH8) at 10 am. Though it will not be as bad for the bikes as for the cars, better to avoid the potential traffic jam and take the Golden bridge route.

If you take the Sardar bridge, maybe you will get enough way for your bikes or may be not.

Wish you the best for your journey.

Took this route on 8th November, left Pune at 4:45 AM, Encountered traffic jam near Manor and Charoti.
At Ankleshwar, took the NH8, was there around 12. On this stretch suggest, keep to extreme left. This is the lane for cars and moves much faster than others . Traffic police were manning this at the start of Sardar Bridge.

Reached Ahmedabad at 3:45 PM
If on bikes, you can easily take the Golden Bridge

Do you recommend the Ankleshwar Bypass or Golden-gate bridge?
Also, what breaks did you take..

Thanks,

Hemant, Refer this post for the latest info on a BHPian who did Bangalore-Ahmedabad and how he negotiated the Ankleshwar Bridge.

You can as well read my response there above.

Construction of bridge over Narmada is in full swing. Heavy traffic pile-on on both sides of the road between Ankleshwar and Bharuch. Was helped by local vendors on the road to take the wrong side, and go below the highway on muddy track till Bharuch
So, apart from following the Golden Rule of taking the Golden Bridge at the Golden Hour, you can always check with few local cars (GJ05/GJ06/GJ01) heading towards Bharuch/Baroda and that always helps.

Hemant, as you are starting from Pune at 5, you should be able to cross ghodbunder by 7/730 am.
For breaks, there are number of restaurants on the way.( You will see number of boards of SugarN Spice) I stopped at McD after Surat.
After Ankleshwar Bridge there is a toll, just after toll there is a foodmall with number of options. You can even stop there

Whether to take Golden Bridge or Bypass, I suggest just before you reach Ankleshwar, switch on google maps on phone and look at the traffic( red lines) on both stretch. Should help you to decide run time.
My observation - going on the wrong side as mentioned by Parag was being facilitated by police. They were asking cars to go on the other side

I am going to from Pune to Ahmedabad first week of Jan, as per the previous posts, I presume it is best to take the Golden Bridge at Ankleshwar?

Additionally, I am driving from Ahmedabad to Udaipur on 10th Jan, planning to leave Ahmedabad around 6/7am. Wanted some recommendations for Breakfast on the way to Udaipur?
Also, my hotel check-in is at 1pm, wanted recommendations for lunch near Udaipur (don't plan on driving in to Udaipur on the first day just for lunch).

Recommendations for breakfast and lunch please

Hi guys, any pointers for a good breakfast stop when leaving from Ahmadabad at around 6:30 or 7:00 towards Udaipur? Planning to leave on Friday morning. I did some basic search, and road conditions seem to be rather good, is there anything that I should make note of?

Just before you reach Motipura circle in Himmatnagar, you will see Hotel Milestone on your right. Offers decent food options. There is another one close to it.. cant remember exactly but I guess it was Khana Khazana.
Happy driving!
