  2. It took me around 5:30 hrs while going and 5 hrs while coming back...

    Roads are good and once can easily cruise in 110-130 km/hr range...

    kolhapur to sholapur

    Kolhapur to Miraj :- 45 Kms (nice road you can keep pace upto 80 Kmph)

    Miraj to Sangola:- 97 Kms (roads are good but more undulations cant be driven at high speeds still 80 -90 Kmph)

    Sangola to Mangalweda :- 48 Kms(less traffic nice roads you can drive @ 120-130 Kmphr)

    Mangalweda to sholapur :- 40 Kms(Nice roads aslo you can keep nice pace)

    recently i have covered this distance in 2 hours 10 mins ;)

    One toll for 15 Rupees after mangalweda and another one before sholapur 20 rupees

    Thanks. Out of the two routes (Hubli, Sholapur) which one is the best for Goa-Hyderabad. (Whatever is best for our punto is the best for me)

    roads are horrible from Sangareddy till maharashtra border.
    if anyone doing night journey strictly avoid it.

    lets expect from solapur to Pune first :d it is almost completed except for 80 kms from solapur which was under diversions and from solapur to hyd god knows.
    its really painful on this route,my punto took two severe hits in big potholes before zaheerabad ,caused due to rains.Also found 2 to 3 cars with punctured tires on this road.

    The surface was completely broken when we did this stretch during the Plant visit. I can visualize how it's state is right now if they didn't recarpet it. I was driving zig-zag to dodge the broken surface and Kiran was wondering why i was doing that when Punto can just glide on top of them. Kiran - Let's hope i'll hit 1L kms on my stock suspensions and you'll know the answer.

    And back to main topic, I believe they'll leave it in that state since the 4 laning will "start" anyway in the next "5 yrs". Why waste money when the new road work will be ready shortly in "10 yrs". Am i being too optimistic when i say 10 yrs?
