Could you please get some names of good dhabas just in case. And, arent you joining?

Trust me this time its not a marketing gimmick. Those 100kms are pure bliss for driving. Some of that highway pictures can be viewed in my travelogue. Link below :-

The 4-laning has put paid to most of the dhabas en route. I remember the good old Fauji dhaba which me and my motorcycling group friends used to visit for our late night rides and it's no more.

The Haritha restaurant is the "family" option at Kamareddi but of course you can't quench your thirst there, nor can you get dhaba-style cooking.

Probable Rendezvous Point: As the drive meet is headed towards NH-7, a good meeting point could be at the Tadbund Road, something near Pakwaan or before Pakwaan. Can always head forward, after amazing cup of tea at Pakwaan.

On a personal note, I don't think any road in India is good enough for the kind of toll charged. At Rs. 110 for a return ticket, they are charging at 50p per km. Highway robbery that is. Yes the road is gorgeous, but do anything above 120kmph (which the Bolero occasionally does) and the small bumps make their presence felt. The car bobs up and down. Some of the gaps in the median and the entries & exits are downright dangerous, especially at night.

Other than that, it is the best highway in the country. Sadly, that is not saying much.

And HMDA "ideally" wanted 2xNHAI toll for the ORR, which is definitely not better than the NH7! Luckily their wings were clipped (even a request for 1.5x was rejected) and the ORR toll will be exactly equal to NHAI's rate per km.

We weren't too disturbed by the bumps in our drive up to Basar some 5 months back but I agree that the median gaps and exits aren't the most scientifically designed.

The markings are very good though and if you keep an eye on them you can anticipate/plan as necessary.

As with any other road in India, the motorists are potentially more dangerous than the road.

I was there on this highway last Sunday for rounding. Went uptill Kamareddi and returned. Driving on this road is pure bliss and one of the best that I driven on in the recent past.

The best part, I guess is the minimal traffic on this road and this makes the drive a pleasure.

The toll tax was Rs. 130/- with return within 24hrs and the next toll gate is at Nirmal..which must be nearly 150 kms from this toll gate.

I saw a lot of options on either side of the road for eating, however not sure if any could accommodate the Hydeez gang...not an issue I guess, as we will accommodate ourselves in any place...khana acha hona chahiye.

I did this route during early January this year and most of the drive was during late evening/night and in my sedan didnt feel what you described as bumps. The roadmarking are outstanding and was able to keep up some good speeds despite being dark.
