Re: Bangalore - Vijayawada - Vizag - Bhubaneswar : Route Queries
 
Did Bangalore - Vijayawada - Bangalore over the weekend via the usual route Bangalore ->Kolar->Palamaner->Chittoor-> Tirupati -> Naidupeta -> Nellore-> Ongole -> Vijayawada

Road ext work between Bangalore and Chittoor are complete and the road is very good. Seems to be in testing, they haven't opened it for toll yet. Road widening work between Chittoor and Tirupati started, however there is no impact yet to the existing road and it is decent. Nellore to Vijayawada is a beautiful 6 lane NH.

Any new updates on Bangalore to Nellore route via Tirupati? Or even just Bangalore Tirupati route?

Update from first week of August 2019

Bangalore - Vijayawada
- Distance: 639 KMs
- Route: Bangalore > Palamner > Tirupati > Gudur > Nellore > Ongole > Vijaywada
- Total Time taken: 10 hours 22 minutes
- Running time: 9 hours 30 minutes
- Excellent roads once you clear Hoskote.
- Start time: 4:00 AM

Vijayawada - Srikakulam
- Distance: 440 KMs
- Total time taken: 10 hours, 30 minutes.
- Running time: 8 hours, 30 minutes.
- Roads are quite good, but traffic is difficult leaving Vijayawada and Vizag is a tough transit. The road widening gets really bad as you close in on Srikakulam and it stays that way from there.

Srikakulam - Bhubaneshwar
- Distance: 320 KMs
Don't have clear time for this as we tried going around Chilka by taking the ferry at Janhikuda to Satapada, but messed up the timings and had to go back to Poluru and take Nh16 again to Bhubaneshwar.
The road conditions improve closer to Barhampur and remain decent all the way into Bhubaneshwar.

Planning to do this stretch in Oct. Any pointers would help, in terms fuel, eatery, safety etc. It would be a solo drive. What was your average speed?

Average speed: I'm not a fast driver, so the first stretch, Bangalore - Vijayawada was the best: 67 KMPH moving. Second best was 54 KMPH on Vijayawada to Srikakulam. Slowest was the run into Bhubaneshwar, but that was due to our many stops and loopy route. The roads are good enough to drive at a MUCH faster pace, but we're not into that. And AP everyone sticks to the limit, guess they enforce their speed limits.

Eateries are a problem on this route. We stopped at Tirupati for breakfast, Ongole has a very good food court above the toll booth. Since you have to go through Rajahmundry & Vizag, eating options are available. There is a CCD before Srikakulam to take a break.

Fuel: Full tank at BLR, Vijayawada, Reliance pump right after crossing into the Odisha at Ichchapuram. There are plenty of them along the way.

Safety: The route does not have a lot of traffic outside the main cities. But we did not feel unsafe at all.
