Default Re: Hyderabad to Bangalore : Route Queries

Did Bangalore - Hyderabad and return couple of weeks back.

Overall, road conditions remain good apart from the ongoing road work near Kurnool town. However, the menance of unmarked speed humps continues in this section.

There was speed checking around here on the way back (we cross this around 11.00AM)

No other checks enroute during both onward and return trips.

Am planning a trip to Anantapur from Hyderabad this weekend. Read this morning that AP has a 12 pm to 6 am curfew...

1. Are there any checks on TS/AP border? Do they need any certificate?
2. How does the curfew impact highway travel?

Thanks friends for your inputs.

Ohh. Is this a recent development? I thought speed checking happens only near Bangalore

Been there since a while now. Few of us were taken by surprise when we were on a Team BHP meet drive the Kurnool and the pilot car alerted us all by calling each one of us. This was as early as 7:30am.

Coming to think of it, highway speed checks are now super normal even on Maharashtra highways but you don't get flagged and will get a text message with a challan in few minutes after crossing them.

First world practices when it comes to charging citizens, third world practices when it comes to serve.

There used to be / (still is?) checks near KIA factory. There been few posts in this thread itself of members who encountered it. I too wasn't aware of the checks happening at the location I mentioned .
