There's a short stretch of multilaned well paved road just after Angamaly towards Aluva on the NH 47 which should be any drivers delight sheerly because it's not straight and there's lot of turning and ups and down to maneouver. Otherwise, in the south, there's hardly any stretch of road that can stand up to the Mumbai Pune EW.

I forgot to mention a great section of road down south. When you head from Bangalore to madurai via hosur, about 70-80kms from blr you hit the "Thompur Ghat".
Now its just 4-5kms of ghat section, but the beauty is its 4-6 laned!!
I doubt there is any such 6 laned ghat section anywhere in India

i have travelled from vizag to bangalore in the last year i.e Jan 2004 . from vizag to naidupet in nellore it is NH5 ( about 750-800Km) it is beatiful and very good excpet for few strethces near ongloe(chilakaluripet and kavali) we could travel at 120KMPh constantly in indigo marina. we covered 400Km between vizag and viziawada in less than 5 hours with 15 min stop at rajamundry. the entire stretch between vizag and madras does not pass through any towns. and where ever it passes through it is flyover type. even the road between naidupet to tirupati(95 Km) is very good.

But it much much better than the days when these slow moving trucks used to cause a traffic havoc in this part before they built this 4-6 lane section.
