1. Can you share the break up, toll wise, if you have the details?
2. I think you mean 30/- toll on ORR from Shamshabad (not Gandipet) to Gachibowli. Gandipet does not have entry to and/or exit from ORR.

Though it is on the right while heading to Bangalore and you will need to go about 800m or so for the U- Turn to head back towards Bangalore
Just read this post. Had missed reading it earlier.

There are gaps in the median for Food Pyramid at both entry/exit points of the property.
There is no need for U Turns in any direction.

Are you sure about this one ?
Laxmannath - 60

As far as I know (and my last trip was towards Anantapur in last week of December 2017), the toll after Devanahall is Bagepalli, nothing in between.

I thought so too!

Interestingly, NHAI does mention a toll called Laxmanath in between KIAL and Bagepalli and when you click open for more information, it mentions that its in Uttar Pradesh :

And when you click on Laxmanath toll for 'Live Traffic' on NHAI Website, it shows the KIAL booth before the Airport Ramp near the McD Signal.

So definitely something isn't right there.

That toll shows up on the NHAI site. Between Devanahalli and Bagepalli.

Actually, the toll named "Laxmannath" is located in West Bengal just north of Odisha - West Bengal border but NHAI has put the marker wrongly on it's site.

The tolls are :
1. Devanahalli (or airport if you want the location more accurately)
2. Bagepalli (just before the border of KA with AP)
3. Marur (just after Anantpur)
4. Kasepalli (at Gooty)
5. Amakathadu (near Dhone)
6. Pullur (just after Kurnool and after AP border into TS)
7. Shakapur (before Jadcherla)
8. Raikal (after Jadcherla)

The TIS website shows the toll charges. Hope this helps.
http://tis.nhai.gov.in/tollplazasonmap?language=en

I went to in the first week of Jan, and toll was on average a little above Rs1 per km.

The images above are from the same site.

In general this site is not always up-to-date from what we gave noticed over the past few years. Needless to say, it simply shows one toll booth that never exists between 2 points .

However, on the map displayed on the TIS website (Source Bangalore and Destination Hyderabad), the flashing circles that show each toll plaza, it doesn't show Laxmannath, correctly shows Bagepalli after Navayuga Devnahalli

The tolls are :

3. Marur (just after Anantpur
Since you listed the tolls in Bangalore-Hyderabad direction, Marur toll is before Anantpur.

Did the Bangalore- Hyderabad-Bangalore journey over the weekend. Excellent roads all through.

Started from Whitefield, so the Devanahalli toll was avoided. Was not able to find a proper place for breakfast, so had to stop at some Baba Dhaba, which was not very clean. On the return journey(HYD-BLR), spotted a restaurant called "Amazon Kitchen", about 30kms after Kurnool on the opposite side of the road. Stopped here for dinner Would rate this place very good with excellent cleanliness, good food and
courteous staff.

1. Do you have FasTag? If yes, how much was the wait time at the tolls? If no, how much was the wait time at tolls? Which tolls had hybrid lanes?
2. How much was travel & drive time between Devanahalli and Shamshabad?

The problem is that for breakfast you have hardly any options since restaurants near Devanahalli do not open early, Nandi Upachar is by far the best but opens at 7:00am, I think Udupi Swada also opens around the same time.

If you start around 4am from Bangalore, better to drive up to Gooty where you have few options or maybe go inside Anantapur.

1. I don't have fast-tag(mine is a company leased car and I'm unable to procure one ). The wait time at most tolls were under a minute, I traveled on Friday morning and returned Sunday night), except for the Bagepalli toll on the return, where there was a huge jam caused by trucks parked haphazardly. I think all toll booths had dedicated fast-tag lanes(hybrid lanes??)

2. Devanahalli to Begumpet took me around 7.5 hours with 1+ hour of breaks.

Driving to Uppal, Hyderbad this Friday, planning to leave koramangala at 3PM.

Please suggest a good place to halt for dinner. Is it safer to drive on this stretch in the night?, as I've never taken this route before.

Thanks in advance.

Rgds,
Vinod
