Re: Pune to Hyderabad : Route Queries

Did the route recently in early Feb, and I want to thank you all for each and every input. Unmarked rumblers, potholes, bad Maha section and those damn slow trucks overtaking each other, I learned a trick to not judge who's gonna win but rather lift and coast until one of them has a good lead then accelerate and finish the overtake. What's with the inner lane on both sides that's been indented by truck tyres or something. I don't like it one bit and chose the outer most lane.

What's appreciable is almost all light vehicle drivers have been smart. Another annoying factor is some random auto anna in small towns and such zooming in without a care.

Another issue I faced that I started early morning from Pune and had to face Sun for most part of the trip. I guess good two hours can be chucked off if roads were good and those formula lorry championships weren't going, even road transport bus guys raced only to stop 5 mins after their 15 min slow overtake.

Another tip is don't heed to Google Maps whenever it suggests some deviation, it took me to worst possible road in Pune in the name of avoiding traffic.

This is a route that I do regularly. Hyd to NIBM Road. I normally start at 4 and reach NIBM road by 11. The distance you can cover from 4 am to 7 or even 8 am is massive. Just make sure that you get enough sleep the night before. I enter Solapur - Pune Highway by 7.30 am.

Hotel Gujrat is normally my pitstop for breakfast on my way back from NIBM road. It all depends on how soon you want to reach your destination.

Hello Team,

Thanks a lot for these inputs. I am on the way riding to Pune. Started at about 5am from HYD. Took adequate stops in between i.e approx once in 2hrs. Currently, taking a long break at Boramni for about 3 hrs.

The stretch after omerga is literally Hell. An unnoticed random bump launched the entire bike for more than a feet in air at the speed of 90kmph. My pillion weighing 70 kgs turned into projectile and landed on me.

If you love your vehicle, consider travelling this stretch at less than 60kmph and get loads of patience along to spend here. Rest, Everything has been fine. Eagerly waiting to reach destination.

Re: Pune to Hyderabad : Route Queries

I rode on my bike from Hyderabad to Pune on Friday and returned today (Monday).

From TSPA, I took the Gandipet-Shankarpally route to get to Sanga Reddy. This route is very good although there is some traffic in a few parts.

The road around Naldurg fort starts to deteriorate. Then becomes better after Solapur. From Indapur onwards lots of 2 inch cut carpets on the road. These are not an issue for cars, but can be deadly for a motorcyclist.

Pune traffic is extremely bad. I have no idea if there is anyone even bothered about it at the city level.

Lots and lots of food options on the highway.

Yep, we have a dedicated Pune traffic rants thread all about it.

T-BHP discusses, but the rest of the world is indifferent. We live with it.

Still learning that Pune is being described as better than other urban villages.

Different strokes for different folks.

Re: Pune to Hyderabad : Route Queries

Latest update:

9th March, left NIBM road at 5:30 AM dot, reached Pista House at Patancheru 1:30 PM dot. I am a sedate driver, with speed below 3 digit and on CC most of the time.The time includes a breakfast break and couple of nature break.

12th March, left Gachibowli at 10:30 AM and reached home at 7:30 PM. Similar driving condition with lunch break and evening Pune traffic.

Naldurga road is similarly narrow as always, but surface has improved marginally for car at least. Could maintain 30 - 40 KMPH in my Verna.
Surprisingly Verna 1.6 petrol averages 18 kmpl .

Re: Pune to Hyderabad : Route Queries

Greetings Team.
I am planning a trip to Lonavala from Hyderabad on April 2nd..

Can members please suggest a best route to reach lonavala.
I'm planning to leave at 3 PM and take a break in Solapur for the night.

Is there a way to bypass Pune and also should I take the Pune Mumbai expressway or the alternate route as seen on maps.

Thanks in advance.
Drive Safe.

Re: Pune to Hyderabad : Route Queries

There is NO way to pass by Pune (at least not an easy one). You will have to negotiate Pune traffic. The only time you can expect to drive smoothly through this is city is between 1am and 6am. Otherwise budget at least two-three hours from Loni Kalbhor on the eastern edge to the expressway to the west of Pune.

Also, a weekend evening rush hour is no fun at all in Pune traffic (or for that matter anywhere in an urban setting).

And yes, expressway is by far the best way for a car.

You canít avoid the Pune traffic considering your time schedule. As per Google, it shows a route to enter the expressway after getting through Dehu road toll. You can avoid this toll and enter the expressway much quicker, have attached a screen shot of the route, else you would end up paying two tolls (old highway and expressway), if you stick to old highway and do not plan to enter expressway then you need to pay only one toll.
