Really? Is it safe to try the Durgam Cheruvu route? I haven't been on that road for more than 2 weeks now!
I feel I burn less fuel by taking Whisper Valley route (60kmph-100kmph) compared chugging along at 20kmph in slow moving traffic!

Be careful on the curve near durgam cheruvu that is on every driving enthusiast's favoriate list. There are some hidden barricades blocking the entire lane behind those fast curves and also some loose gravel.

Yeah, it is safe, but speeds more than 30 kmph are not possible on that stretch---compared to 5 kmph till yesterday.

Hmm, I suppose you are referring to the curve on the road----I was reading between the lines, especially after mobike008 mentioned about 'something fishy'

Fire at Tolichowki.
Building besides Finjaan.

I don't think it was strong enough for causalities but big enough to attract a large crowd of cell-phone cameramen.
Traffic pile up ensued.

Time around 5:20 PM, today.

CT Turning, opposite KFC.

There is a lorry filled with blue metal that is stuck in the middle of the road.
The wheels are stuck as the road underneath has collapsed.

As of 8:10 AM, no cranes were available at the site to remove it.

Please take alternate routes, when coming to office.
It will cause a nasty Jam.

Me too was in the CTC mould. First time i am hearing Cyber Towers referred to as CT...LOL

Update from my end is i am going though a huge pain in my backside these days when i head back home via. Lumbini and NTR Park road, huge crowds, cranes, policemen, devotees for the Ganesh Visherjan.

But what to do, no other route option

I had one such bird jump in front of my bike sometime back during the night! Unfortunately, the street lights were off and the headlight was on high-beam.

Caught a glimpse of green suddenly appearing in my path and braked hard from 100 kmph to 0 kmph in no time!

Spoke to the bird, "In your eagerness to fly away, you would have taken me & my friend along with you!"
