It took me 3hr 10 minutes non stop from Nashik Phata to Nashik Road on the evening of Jan 26. It should take you that much time, maybe less now. Proceed with confidence, no need to take alternate routes now.
Thank you! I had almost made up my mind to take the route via Thane - The one suggested in the last post (#79) here:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/route-...queries-6.html (Mumbai - Nasik : Route Queries)

Now, I won't take that route - will save me some 80 kms (There wasn't any time difference anyway)

Will update when I'm back.

Thanks again!

PS: 3 hours 10 minutes to cover that distance - some sort of a record it seems. Google suggests approx. 4.5 hours!

No record. It is genuinely that good. I was only doing constant 100 on the straights and 80-90 on the well marked 4-lane ghats (The 130odd km stretch marked as NH60). With no stops, it was easily done and dusted. The road has just started and most of the challenging bits have been removed, Google probably doesn't know it yet

Note: If you are comfortable driving in the dark, it is easy to beat traffic. The worst part will be between Nashik Road and Sinnar, the rest is smooth sailing.

Thanks antz.bin for the suggestions. Completed the trip yesterday. Drove from Trimbakeshwar to Nashik Phata in 5 hours flat (with approx. 1 hour break in between).

Trimbakeshwar to Nashik Road was a breeze. Nashik road to Sinnar was a nightmare. The rest, again, was smooth. However, one needs to be careful of numerous diversions on the under construction road.

Thanks!

Default Re: Pune - Nashik Alternate Route

I am planning to do Nashik trip coming long weekend. So from Kharadi, I should take
  1. Nagar road -> Kawathe - Jambut road NH61 -> NH60
  2. Elphinston Road -> khadki -> NH60
What is the current road condition? I am a sedate driver and planning to leave Pune by 8 in the morning. How much driving time should I consider?


Also, I will be with my elderly parent and 3 year old, any suggestion of a good place for break and have lunch on the way?

Completed Nashik trip last weekend. NH60, 4 lane work still going on. Almost 60 KMs near Pune and 30 KM from Nashik are still 2 lane. It is quiet breeze to maintain 120 KMPH speed in the 4 lane areas, where speed drops to 40-60 range in 2 lane part.
Took me around 4 hour 30 minutes driving time excluding the breaks, where major time consuming areas are from Pune to Rajgurunagar and also provided I have to deal with usual Pune traffic till Kharadi.
