Lockdown restrictions are active in Pune and inspection is at random. One is advised to carry Covid negative report, not older than 48 hours.

Hi.. Did you travel from Hyderabad to Pune? How was your experience? Do we require e pass to cross states? I am planning a trip from Mumbai to Hyderabad in mid-June.

I did my travel from Hyderabad to Pune to 15th of May. I should admit this was the best drive I ever had on this route. Though I had an e pass from Telangana state, there were no one to check this at all. Even Karnataka no police stopped me.

The only place I was stopped was before Sholapur. Police first asked me for an ePass but I told them that I only have a RTPCR for me and family and they just checked its date ( to see if its within 48 Hrs ). Except for that there were no police checks anywhere,

This was the best drive I ever had actually.

That's great to know. On the Maharashtra e-pass website, there are only 3 reasons to select. So it's difficult to apply. I am counting on RTPCR test report and hope there should not be any trouble.

This will be my first long trip with family including my 5-year old kid. Can you please share how long it took you from Hyderabad to Pune? Any advice on stops and petrol filling? How is the road condition now?

Thanks.

No e pass or any certificate is required to enter Telangana now. All restrictions have been lifted. However you have to transit Karnataka and please check if any restrictions are there to enter Karnataka. Karnataka has removed all restrictions for some of the districts.

RT-PCR is required while travelling via Karnataka and Maharashtra borders.

Drove solo from Navi Mumbai to Hyderabad yesterday (Friday).

I decided to keep below 100 kmph on the Mumbai-Pune expressway keeping in mind the advise of fellow BHPians who wrote about speed cameras. It required some effort and this was probably the first time ever that I did not cross 100 kmph on the expressway even once.

Crossed Pune during the morning rush hour. It took 2 hours from Gahunje, the end of the expressway to reach the NH65 Pune Solapur highway. Then had to stop to get a puncture repaired.

So decided to take my chances to make up for lost time. Saw 4-5 highway patrol cars fitted with speed cameras on the Bhigwan-Solapur-Omerga stretch but they were not checking or stopping any vehicles.

Traffic after Sangareddy was really bad. Overall, it took 11 hours driving time from Navi Mumbai to Hyderabad.

No COVID related checking since it was a weekday I suppose, but weekend lockdown has been enforced in many Maharashtra districts including Solapur and I will be returning to Navi Mumbai tomorrow (Sunday) so will provide further updates on that.

11 hours is a decent drive.
Update once you get back to Mumbai

Drove back from Hyderabad to Navi Mumbai yesterday (Sunday).

Weekend lockdown had been enforced in many Maharashtra districts including Solapur and as per MH police website ePass is not required at present. I did not have any RT-PCR report either.

As it turns out, it was not required because there was absolutely no checking at the borders. Lockdowns might have been imposed in towns or cities but on the highway it was business as usual. Most of the dhabas and eateries were open.

The only cops that I saw were at the toll plaza near Warawade and they were stopping a few (but not all) out of state vehicles. But they were not checking solely for COVID because they were also focusing on their routine business of trucks and lorries.

Also kept a speed of 100-120 kmph and there was no speed related checking either.

Overall, a pleasant journey because the forecast was for heavy rains but all I encountered was overcast skies, cool breeze and no rain (not even a drizzle) for most of the trip.

Pune to Solapur is a breeze. There are some bad patches between Naldurg and Omerga, but nothing that can't be handled.

And there is another flyover under construction before Sangareddy which can cause traffic jams. But overall, the Pune to Hyd stretch can be done in 7-8 hours easily non stop.

If one is coming from Mumbai the main bottleneck will be crossing Pune which can take upto 2-2.5 hours depending on what time you plan to go through Pune.

Pune - Hyderabad on Friday.
From Bhairoba Nala (4:45 pm) to Patancheru (01:45 am), it took total 9 hours (7.5 hours of travelling plus 1.5 hours for Dinner, tea and petrol). Maintained speeds strictly within 80 kmph. But I could cruise at a steady speed of 80 for most of the time after crossing Patas. Reaching Patancheru after midnight helped to save some traffic time after Sangareddy. No stopping, no checking anywhere. At the check post near Sangareddy, the policeman sitting by the side of the barricade just flashed his torch to see who is there in the car.

Hyderabad - Pune on Sunday.
From Patancheru (5 pm) to Bhairoba Nala (2 am), it took total 9 hours (7.25 hours of travelling plus 1.75 hours for Dinner, tea and petrol). Maintained speeds strictly within 80 kmph. But I could cruise at a steady speed of 80 for most of the time. Again, reaching Pune after midnight helped to save some traffic time after Patas. Was stopped once after crossing Sangareddy for checking PUC and insurance. Otherwise no checks, no stopping anywhere.

Did a quick Hyderabad-Panvel-Hyderabad drive last week.

Hyd to Panvel - No checkpoints on the way, road condition is good mostly but a patch between Omerga and Solapur is not great, under construction road slows you down a bit. Entered Pune at noon, lost some time in traffic and Pune roads have been battered in the rains.

Panvel to Hyd - On the way back, we were stopped at the MH-KA border for RTPCR inspection, showed my 1st vaccination certificate and was allowed to leave, also having a TS registered vehicle helped. Some cars from MH were sent back.
